The Ikettes have today’s almost forgotten track

today’s selection was suggested by a post on another page that I visited where someone posted a chart and somebody asked about this track…I remember it as one of my faves at the time…the trio was the backing group for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue and rarely had singles released under their own name, but this one, particularly, deserved the attention it got…many women passed through the Ikettes in the day, including many who became better known in later years, but the most unusual of them was Bonnie Bramlett who, at Ike’s instruction, applied makeup and wore an afro so that she’d fit in…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
