1978 - Root Toot Undisputable Rock'n Roller 7 Inch Single

"Root Toot Undisputable Rock'n Roller" is a single from Tina Turner's album "Rough".
It is a nice popsong that Tina Turner performed on several shows in Europe. For instance:
At the Disco Show , Kultnach from 3Sat in Germany in 1979, on Musikladen in Germany in 1979 and at the San Remo Festival in Italy in1979.

 

 

"Root Toot Undisputable Rock'n Roller" is about a woman that works in a bar. She is fierce and doesn't let anybody mess with her.
The B-side is "The Night Time Is The Right Time". It is a great rhythm and blues song. It was recorded by Nappy Brown in 1957. It draws on earlier blues songs. Blues pianist Roosevelt Sykes (listed as "The Honey Dripper") recorded "Night Time Is the Right Time" in 1937 (Decca 7324). Called "one of his 'hits' of the day", it is a moderate-tempo twelve-bar blues that features Sykes on vocal and piano. It has been suggested that it was "drawn from the old vaudeville tradition".
Tina Turner performed this one too at the Kultnach in Germany in 1979.
The song is about a woman that wants to be with the man that she loves.

Root, toot undisputable rock ‘n’ roller

Album: Rough - 1978

When you walk into the bar
I’m the first one you’re gonna see
Business and pleasure just don’t mix
So can I take your order please
You fellas know I don’t take no mess
It’s a whole lotta woman in this dress
They call me root toot undisputable rock ‘n’ roller
I gotta fine Fanny
But a rough talking Annie
A rock and roller

Every time the jukebox plays
I get out on the floor
Trouble maker come my way
I’ll gladly show him the door
Everybody knows to keep it cool
‘Came fresh out of a karate school
They call me root toot undisputable rock ‘n’ roller
I gotta fine Fanny
But a rough talking Annie
A rock and roller
Alright

Tell me now
If you bright too step to the right
And don’t you make me mad
‘Cause like a tornado
Without a warning I clear the past
You gotta know that I’m muscle fountain
By the way I call my ways around
That’s why they call me the root toot undisputable rock ‘n’ roller
I gotta fine Fanny
But a rough talking Annie
A rock and roller
Root toot undisputable rock ‘n’ roller
I gotta fine Fanny
But a rough talking Annie
And a rock and roller
Root toot undisputable rock ‘n’ roller
Fine Fanny
Rough talking Annie
And a rock and roller
Root toot undisputable rock ‘n’ roller
I gotta fine Fanny
A rough talking Annie
A rock and roller

    Tina Turner

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
