Tina is the business. Take or leave the Ike.

Her raw and gutsy voice provided such a fresh take on what was previously an almost exclusively smooth and sober sounding genre. That's not to say that the soul genre hadn't delivered greatness regularly as it most certainly had, however what Tina brought to it was a new sound and a completely unique voice.

This track is a great example of her rare vocal power.
