(Ike & Tina Turner - times change but the song stays the same)

As much of an icon Tina Turner became on her own after her split with Ike, the early material had an explosive edge and has aged well over the years. Tina always poured it out and never held anything back. And every song is a classic.

This track, Wake Up opens their Sue album "Don't Play Me Cheap", made during their association with R&B impresario Juggy Murray. Like most everything on Sue, it never lacked for raw energy and it sure never lacked for spirit.

And that's a good thing for a Thursday night.
