Sexy Ida contains two stylistically different versions, written by Tina Turner. It was intended to be included on the album Sweet Rhode Island Red, but was only on the tracklist in some European countries to promote their tour. Ike & Tina performed the song live at several tv shows like „Soul Train“ and „The Midnight Special“. Ike Turner recorded also a solo version in 1996 with lead vocals by Patrick Gammon and Anita Davis, available on his album My Bluescountry.
