IKE & TINA: Single

Please, Please, Please (1964)

Ike & Tina Turner - Please, Please, Please - Single

Please, Please, Please is a James Brown cover song and was released twice as a single. The 1964 release includes the previously unreleased song „Am I A Fool In Love“ on the b-side, in contrast to „Please, Please, Please - Part II“ from the 1970 b-side, which is a spoken interaction between Tina and the audience. Usually, Ike & Tina performed the song in their concerts as a medley, together with The Wedding. Kent Records released also a single in 1984, featuring a seven minute long version, taken from the Club Imperial in St. Louis, Missouri. All live versions were taken from the 1964 album Revue Live. Ike & Tina promoted the song also at the Big TNT Show in 1965.
