Ike & Tina Turner - I Smell Trouble (Soul to Soul, 1971)


This clip from the original Soul to Soul concert documentary held on Independence Day in Ghana shows up in AppleTV’s new 1971 music documentary with commentary from Kevin Griffin, a singer with Voices of East Harlem, who said that Ike spent the afternoon prior to the show getting wired on coke and trashing Tina:

“He belittled her. He talked about her like she was non-existent. Like she was a dog. He constantly verbally abused her and all she was doing was preparing herself to now deliver. She was the front person. She was the show. No person should have been able to deliver the performance that she delivered.”
