Goodbye: Goodbye, So Long

The late sixties and early seventies may have been the heyday of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, but the years leading up to River Deep - Mountain High and Proud Mary (to name but a few unforgettables) are just as interesting for lovers of sweet soul music. The collection of songs pictured above, which the dynamite duo recorded for the Bihari brothers' Kent label in the mid-sixties, makes a great starting-off point for further exploration. You only need to check out their gritty '65 single Goodbye, So Long to see what I'm on about. "Things ain't what they used to be - you can't do a thing for me..." Go Ikettes, go!
