Ike And Tina Turner - Proud Mary 7"

Proud Mary, Smoud Mary. Listen, don't listen it doesn't really matter. Nothing really new there. I'm not saying it's not a good song, because it is. It is a classic and if you've ever scene any of Tina's live performance of this they are perhaps even better. But in my opinion it all pales in comparison to this scorching B-side "Funkier Than A Mosquita's Tweeter". From the very first note to the last this funk filled serving of Tina hits you right between the eyes and knocks you out. This is one of those songs I love playing for people not only because it is simply great, but because they usually never know who the artist is. Usually they are pretty blown away that it is Ike and Tina because it is so completely rock and roll and it isn't a cover, which I think most people associate with them.
