Billboard - March 17, 1962

„Tra La La La La“: Ike and Tina sell this wild side with enthusiasm over uninhibited backing by group and ork. Could get exposure, especially on r.&b. stations. „Puppy Love“: Tina shouts out the lyrics to this medium rocker brightly over driving ork support. (SUE 757) ****

CashBox - March 17, 1962

Ike & Tina Turner, riding a string of r&b-pop clicks that recently included “A Fool In Love,” should continue their winning ways with this one. It’s a bright rock-a-cha-cha, labeled „Tra La La La La,“ that Tina & a chorus invitingly chant against a terrific Ike Turner instrumental backdrop. Backing’s a ripplying rhythmic blueser tabbed „Puppy Love.“ (Sue 757)
