Sweet Rhode Island Red is the very last studio album from Ike & Tina Turner before they separated. It contains many songs written by Tina Turner, as well as some cover versions from Stevie Wonder. Most of the songs were remixed and reissued after Tina’s comeback on the album Golden Empire, while the track Living For The City was released as a single in 1985, including an extended club mix. In some European countries, the album features the additional track Sexy Ida, because this song was released as a single while Ike & Tina were on tour in Europe. The album was reissued in 2012 on the double CD Sweet Rhode Island Red / The Gospel According To Ike & Tina.
