Billboard - June 23, 1962

„You Should’a Treated Me Right“: Slick jaz opening sets the mood into a strong rhythm feel on this side. Tina takes much of the vocal work supported by fem vocal group. „Sleepless“: The girl's in the screaming mood as she wails the blues-oriented tune here. She is backed by smooth combo and chorus of chicks. (SUE 765) ****

Cashbox - June 23, 1962

Ike & Tina Turner should soon be represented on the hit lists with this new Sue stand. It’s an infectious twist’er, tabbed „You Should’a Treated Me Right,“ that has Tina brightly belting against a sock femme and Ike Turner-led instrumental support. Another pop-r&b triumph for the artists. Fine beat-ballad blueser „Sleepless“ on the other end can also score. (SUE 765)
