Life's a bitch, and so is the world -- for Ike Turner at least. Neither his late and absurd Hall Of Fame induction nor the release of compilations like this one will ever do justice to one of the KEY characters in the birth and development of R&B. That is why any album underlining his historical importance and artistic talent deserves plenty of attention. Down And Out -- available on vinyl only -- gathers the very best of Ike's output as a solo artist and as the leader of the Kings Of Rhythm during the '50s. This feast of raw R&B includes "I'm Lonesome Baby," his legendary first 45, the killer instrumentals "Cuban Getaway" and "Cubano Jump," as well as "Box Top," the recording debut of a very young Tina Turner. Features exquisite cover art, remastered sound, liner notes and discography by specialist Fred Rothwell, the man who is currently writing Ike Turner's biography.
