Some great news for all of us fans that just popped up this week!
First, Ike & Tina coming on Blu-Ray. A pair of classic Sixties concert films, 1964’s T.A.M.I. Show and its 1966 follow-up The Big T.N.T. Show, will come to Blu-ray together for the first time this December as a two-disc collection’s edition. For the Blu-ray release, both films received a high-definition transfer, as evidenced by the first sample of the upcoming release: Ike & Tina Turner’s explosive cover of James Brown’s “Please, Please, Please” from The Big T.N.T. Show. Pre-Order here!
Second, Goldenlane records is set to release a 3 cd Box Set of Ike & Tina Turner recordings under the Pompeii Label. Between 1960 and 1970, the groundbreaking, erratic, and turbulent couple/duo recorded music for a whopping ten plus record labels resulting in nearly 70 singles and some 20 albums. According to a press release, during these recordings Ike & Tina “toured regularly both here and abroad (reportedly averaging some 300 shows a year), made frequent television appearances, and managed to raise a family.”
Anyhow, from 1968-1969, the duo cut a plethora of songs with Pompeii Records, and now the catalog is available on a 3-CD set dubbed ‘The Complete Pompeii Recordings 1968-1969.’
The 3-CD box set will be available starting September 23 from Goldenlane Records, a division of Cleopatra Records, Inc. Pre-Order here!
We will review the BluRay & the Boxset as soon as we’ll get them so stay tune! And please, please, please, we want more releases like those!
