Synopsis

Album Description
First released in 1969, 'A Black Man's Soul' captured Ike Turner & His Kings of Rhythm at their funkiest. Armed with songs written by Turner, his St. Louis colleague Oliver Sain and more, Ike & His Kings combined R&B with funk, rock and gospel to create an album that shows off the wide spectrum of black music. This release contains some of the finest and most sought-after examples of Ike Turner's funk artistry, including Grammy-nominated "Thinking Black" and DJ breakbeat jewel "Funky Mule." 1969 was a banner year for Ike & The Kings of Rhythm, as well as for Tina Turner. At the Grammy Awards, "Thinking Black" was nominated in the category of Best R&B Instrumental while Tina made the list of nominees for Best Female R&B Singer. Included are all tracks from the original 1969 release, plus unreleased bonus tracks that offer a fine meal to any aficionado or an in-depth primer to those just discovering the globally reaching genius, funk, and soul of Ike Turner.
 

CD Reviews

Getting Nasty is the bomb track here.
12/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ike Turner is the Darth Vader of rock and roll. This mostly instrumental album is one of the more funk-focused of Ike's 50-plus year career.
"Getting Nasty" is the bomb - Billy Preston playing piano shortly before going to England to cut "Get Back" with the Beatles. Jurassic 5 has sampled this track. Check Ike out..and Tina is the female voice of true rock and roll."
Thank you for having this gem available again !

"This must be one of the best Ike Turner albums ever. For the vinyl lovers ...Funky delicacies has it also available on LP.
A must for every fan of soul music."
None better

"I would give this 10 stars if Amazon would let me.
What a tight band Ike had!
Every cut is A-1.
Words can't describe the tightness of Ike's and band's FUNK.
Better than most music foisted on to us today.
Thank You,Ike Turner."
