The Archive Series, Vol. 6: Rollin'

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
Rollin' is the sixth and the last volume at least for the moment in SPV's series of compilations featuring rare archival material by Ike & Tina Turner, and it has roughly the same strengths and weaknesses as the other discs that preceded it. Like the earlier volumes, Rollin' has liner notes that don't offer much in the way of specifics about the music included, and absolutely no details about when and where these tracks were recorded they were clearly cut over a fairly broad span of time and why they failed to emerge until now.

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
Rollin' is the sixth and the last volume at least for the moment in SPV's series of compilations featuring rare archival material by Ike & Tina Turner, and it has roughly the same strengths and weaknesses as the other discs that preceded it. Like the earlier volumes, Rollin' has liner notes that don't offer much in the way of specifics about the music included, and absolutely no details about when and where these tracks were recorded they were clearly cut over a fairly broad span of time and why they failed to emerge until now. But past these offenses to pop culture scholarship, Rollin' delivers 54 minutes of really great music from one of the truly magnificent acts in the history of R&B. Tina Turner's vocals are invariably powerful and display a greater stylistic range than she's given credit for, and say what you will about Ike Turner as a husband or role model, but these tracks confirm the man was a terrific guitarist and incredible bandleader who led his group through the dawn of soul in the late '50s to the swaggering funk of the 1970s and sounded firmly of the moment at every turn. And together, Ike & Tina could not only write a fine tune but knew how to turn a cover into something entirely their own; cue up the re-imaginings of Bill Withers' "Use Me," Hoyt Axton's "Never Been to Spain," and B.B. King's "Why I Sing the Blues" and you'll hear bold, inventive performances that reconstruct the songs from the ground up. Given the huge amount of material they recorded for a large number of labels, Ike & Tina Turner's music hasn't been given the comprehensive reissue treatment it deserves, but Rollin' like the other discs in this series helps make clear just how good and how multifaceted this duo really was, and that's a worthy accomplishment.
