IKE & TINA: Single

Two Is A Couple (1965)

Ike & Tina Turner - Two Is A Couple - Single

Two Is A Couple is the first of two singles, after Ike & Tina re-signed to Sue Records in late 1965, featuring two non album tracks. Tina promoted the song on the American TV-Show Where The Action Is in 1965. The title track was later re-issued as a bonus on the double CD Don’t Play Me Cheap / It’s Gonna Work Out Fine in 2004 and a different version is available on the album Airwaves from 1978. The b-side track „Tin Top House“ is a very unusual song for Ike & Tina and only available on this single.

CashBox - October 17, 1965

Ike and Tina Turner return to the home of their original hits with this power-packed Sue release dubbed „Two Is A Couple.“ The side is a rollicking, fast-moving pop-r&b handclapper about a somewhat jealous lass who doesn't want any other female messing around with her fella. 'Tin Top House' is a lyrical, lush-sounding blues weeper with a nostalgic years-back sound.
