"Although it may be hard to find, buy the cd on Blue Moon records, a Spanish record label, that features the complete The Hunter and Outta Season albums. They both fit onto one cd, so why they left out 8 tracks and called it The Best of the Blue Thumb recordings is beyond me. So the one star is not for the music itself (which is great!) but for the 8 tracks left out."
Doesn't get better than Tina!

"The song Bold Soul Sister popped up on my iPod today. Toward the end of it I realized," Holy Smokes, that's Albert Collins playing solo guitar fills". He's unmistakable. Even though he's not credited on the CD it makes sense because I believe Albert put something out on Blue Thumb too. True story: when I was a young lad (14 maybe) I helped move equipment for an Ike and Tina show. I sat right by the side of stage. This would have been about 1970. At one point during the show somebody handed me Ike's Strat....I couldn't resist strumming a chord or two on it. He had the action set low!
On a side note, in the new Wayne Shorter bio there is a crazy story about him walking into his house to find Tina, the greatest rock singer ever, scrubbing his floors. Read the book for the details.
PS Check out the non-Phil Spector River Deep, Mountain High on the EMI Best of Ike and Tina Turner..stunning vocal track!!"
Ike and Tina at their best !

"The best of the blue thumb recordings is a compilation with the best tracks of Ike & Tina 's two blues albums which they made for Blue thumb records in the late sixties: "Outta Season" and "the hunter". If you listen to this album, you would want to see Tina Turner make another blues record again. Although the material she recorded since "Private Dancer" is of high quality, the music on this compilation shows a Tina which a lot of younger fans don't know and is really worth knowing ! Also we may not forget what a brilliant musician Ike Turner was and still is (Check out his new album "My blues Country"). If you like the blues...buy it, you won't regret it !"
