Ike & Tina Turner were an American rock & roll and soul duo, made of the husband-and-wife team of Ike Turner and Tina Turner in the 1960s and 1970s. Spanning sixteen years together as a recording group, the duo's repertoire included rock & roll, soul, blues and funk.
"Feel Good, not Superfly, is the sound of early-'70s pimping — even when the tempo slows down, which happens rarely, it's for a slow blues grind, not a ballad, and songs like Tina's 'Kay Got Laid (Joe Got Paid)' make no apologies for mythologizing pimps. This results in a supremely sleazy, utterly addictive record, one that's relentless in its rhythms and fearless in its funk as Ike lays down nasty rock & roll guitar — check his solos on 'Feel Good,' where he's as elastic as rubber — and Tina tears it up with pure, unbridled passion. Feel Good is quintessentially '70s — the fuzztoned funk practically conjures up platform shoes and mile-wide collars — but it doesn't belong to any one sound, it casually draws from Southern soul, James Brown funk, black pride, Superfly style and juke joint R&B, a sound that is uniquely identified with Ike & Tina. And while this contains no flat-out classics like 'Nutbush City Limits' or 'Proud Mary,' as an album Feel Good undoubtedly ranks among their very best: It's a non-stop party." — All Music Guide
