Bumping Along With Ike & Tina

Ike & Tina Turner - You Can't Miss Nothing

I'm running late today so I'll be brief - I first heard this Ike & Tina number from a Sonja 45 I picked up at a book fair. (I found some other cool 45s that day but I'll discuss some of them later.) As per usual for Ike & Tina's mid-to-late '60s recordings, it's got a bumping rock 'n' roll-tinged groove, but this tune features an attractive "Spanish" sound that goes well with the spoken intro. Ike's guitar is nice and reverb-laden also. It's one of my favorite songs by the group.
