Funkier Than A Mosquito’s Tweeter

I had a rather delightful surprise at work this week: I was presented with an iTunes gift voucher to the tune of £100 for services rendered. Now, there’s a whole lot of fun I can have with such a thing. First thing I did was grab an album that’s been on the ole’ wishlist for a long time. And boy, I do not regret this purchase!

Ike & Tina Turner, Funkier Than A Mosquito’s Tweeter. This album is incredible. Raw R&B (when R&B really was) ’n’ funk. Incredible tunes, incredible performances, cleaned-up with a bit of re-mastering, but not too clean, just how I like it. If your experience of La Turner is pap like What’s Love Got To Do With It, Simply The Best and so forth (they actually played the latter at a work conference a couple of years ago: I shyte thee not), then prepare to be very pleasantly surprised. I bought a load of other stuff too, and it’s all great, but this one is really worth highlighting.
