Down and Out

LP (jerome)

Precio habitual €14.50

Life’s a bitch, and so is the world...for Ike Turner at least. Neither his late and absurd Hall of Fame induction nor the release of compilations like this one will ever do justice to one of the KEY characters in the birth and development of R&R. That is why any album underlining his historical importance and artistic talent deserves plenty of attention. “Down and Out” –available on vinyl only— gathers the very best of Ike’s output as a solo artist and as the leader of the Kings of Rhythm during the fifties. This feast of raw R&B includes “I’m Lonesome Baby”, his legendary first 45, the killer instrumentals “Cuban Getaway” and “Cubano Jump”, as well as “Box Top”, the recording debut of a very young Tina. Exquisite cover art, remastered sound, liner notes and discography by specialist Fred Rothwell, the man who is currently writing Ike Turner’s biography. "I'm Lonesome Baby", "You're Driving Me Insane", "Cubano Jump", "Troubles And Heartaches", "Looking For My Baby", "Cuban Getaway", "I Wanna Make Love To You", "Loosely", "Boxtop", "(I Know) You Don't Love Me", "Go To It", "Down & Out", "Walking Down The Aisle", "My Love".

La vida es dura y el mundo, cruel. También, cómo no, para Ike Turner. Ni su tardía y absurda inducción al Hall of Fame ni la edición de recopilatorios como éste harán justicia a unos de los personaje CLAVE en el nacimiento y la construcción del rock and roll. Esa es la razón por la que cualquier disco que reivindique su importancia y nos revele más pistas sobre su enorme talento merece todas las medallas. "Down and Out", solo disponible en vinilo, reúne lo mejorcito de su material, tanto en su carrera en solitario como en su faceta de líder de los Kings Of Rhythm durante la década de los 50. Un festín de genuino y crudo R&B que incluye “I’m Lonesome Baby”, su histórico primer single, los deliciosos instrumentales “Cuban Getaway” y “Cubano Jump”, -donde demuestra su destreza con el tremolo de la guitarra- o “Box Top”, que sirvió a una jovencísima Tina Turner para estrenarse en esto de grabar discos. Elegante portada, sonido remasterizado y notas de contraportada y discografía a cargo del experto Fred Rothwell, que actualmente se encuentra escribiendo su biografía. "I'm Lonesome Baby", "You're Driving Me Insane", "Cubano Jump", "Troubles And Heartaches", "Looking For My Baby", "Cuban Getaway", "I Wanna Make Love To You", "Loosely", "Boxtop", "(I Know) You Don't Love Me", "Go To It", "Down & Out", "Walking Down The Aisle", "My Love".
