Ike Turner & Jackie Jackie Brenston heal the wounds inflicted by "Rocket 88" 6 years earlier. "Rocket 88" became such a Blues hit, it allegedly financed Sam Philips Memphis Sun studio to get started. A collaboration with Ike Turner that saw Brenston paid almost $ 1000 and Ike just $20 as a session man, with Ike suffered a double dishonor as his "Ike Turner and His Kings of Rhythm" were rechristened as "The Delta Cats" cutting IKe out the deal completely.

But Ike forgave the former Saxophonist of "Ike Turner and His Kings of Rhythm" to write him two more songs, but this time got his groups credits on the label.

Here before you today is an Authentic 1957 ORIGINAL promo - Of this raucous double helping of thumping 50's R&B brilliantly backed by Ike's team and spectacularly fronted by his former Sax player with an intimidating growling voice.

One listen and you will fully understand why this disc has been bootlegged, as both a black stock copy and the white promo replicating the label designs. Wanted on several different scenes, it's unrelenting power ripping up R&B / Rock N' Roll clubs across the globe for many decades. It also matters very little, which side you drop the stylus on, both sides explode with raw energy. Ike Turner's band whipping up a storm with blues guitar, wailing saxophone and rattling piano notes. bridged by a legendary free-style Ike Turner guitar break. Real-deal Black Rocker with immense power. "Much Later" is a breathless foot-to-the-floor stomper from the first note to the last.

whilst the flipside has it's R&B rebellion quantities also. "Mistreater" is also a fabulous screamer once again framing Jackie Brenston's snarling style. A pace slower maybe but also an imposing R&B mover, brandishing a killer Saxophone partition half way through.

Both sides benefiting from the Jackie & Ike reunion, with Jackie's snarling style and Ike Turner's band rich full-on backing bringing together two real-deal St. Louis R&B, recorded in Cincinnati.

FIRST PRESS identifier notes for those of you who will most like have the repro - The ORIGINAL PRESS is pressed in rigid non-flexible 1957 vinyl, giving up a deep-cut F - 45 - 1230 - 1 matrix sitting between the wide 1st turn and 2nd revolution of the 1.60 cm wide 3 Turn deadwax.
