Blues & Soul Review

October 8, 1974

Every now and then Ike and Tina burst through with a giant. Last time around, it was „Nutbush City Limits“ and then followed a couple of duds. Now Tina shrieks her way through a bubbling disco item that is virtually assured of both pop and soul victory in this country. *****
