Cash Box - August 10, 1957

A: Ike Turner wails a slow, rhythmic blues with a great deal of feeling. Turner sings in good voice and is intense in his interpretation. Swingy deck that makes good listening. Kids should like it.
B: The Ike Turner orchestra rocks out an instrumental middle beat jump with a solid sound and overall appeal. Two ok commercial decks.
