Ike and Tina Turner--Contact High

Some credit Ike Turner's old song "Rocket 88" as being the first actual Rock N' Roll song.  That is open to debate.  But what isn't up for debate is how groovy this song "Contact High" is.  I found the LP with this song on it perusing the dusty record stacks of a thrift store in San Diego.  What a gem.  How could anyone resist this beat.  Judge for yourself.

Unfortunately, neither the song nor the CD of this album is available for sale unless you want to buy a Tina Turner solo album along with it.  I will leave that choice up to you.  There are a couple other good tunes on the "Come Together" CD.  I can't vouch for the Tina Turner solo thing.
