2003 - What you see is what you want - Promo CD - Japan

"What You See Is What You Want" is a Japanese Promo CD which wasn’t officially released by either Ike or Tina’s record labels. The CD is a rare gem. It contains live tracks of Ike & Tina’s TV performances but also the recording sessions of "River Deep Mountain High" in 1966.

 

 

The Ike & Tina Turner Revue were a hit for their exciting live shows. These shows were an explosion of singing and dancing. Tina’s sexy stage persona turned every audience into a sauna and they’ve always gave Tina the recognition for her soulful voice and her high energy. Ike got credit around the world for his music influence and being a great instruments player. However it was a bummer that they never were recognised for their records, because they never had a lot of major record sales which went to gold or platinum sales. Tina admitted that during their interview on the TV Show Soultrain.

As you can see there are multiple TV Shows on this CD. |
Track 9-13 were from a TV Show in 1966. We can’t be sure if these live recordings are from "Ready Steady Go!", because we never saw the video of it or know exactly what they’ve performed on that show. We only know that they’ve performed "River Deep Mountain High" on that show.
So that could be an option.

 

Tina Turner

 

Track 14-18 are from a TV show called "Playboy After Dark".
Ike & Tina attended the show in 1969. Here’s a video of it. Enjoy!

    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.
