A&M Records - November 10, 1972

To co-incide with their British visit, A&M Records have released what must be one of Ike & Tina Turner's greatest tracks, the classic „River Deep, Mountain High,“ coupled on a maxi-single with two other Spector-produced tracks „A Love Like Yours“ and „Save The Last Dance For Me“.

Blues & Soul - September 15, 1972

Three true classics of the mid-60's that typify that great booming Phil Spector sound. To me, Ike and Tina have never been as good in their whole career as when they were with Spector. In all honesty. Tina's performance on "River Deep" must rank as one of the all-time great Soul performances. Personally, I always loved her soulful rendering of the underrated Holland-Dozier-Holland ballad. "A Love Like Yours" and their version of "Save The Last Dance For Me" is almost as good as the Drifters' original. Three outstanding examples of Ike & Tina and Spector that deserve to sell and sell and sell. ****
