Ike Turner, A Black Man’s Soul (1969)

While looking for a compilation of Ike Turner’s early rock and roll sides, such as Jackie Brenston’s classic “Rocket 88,” I wound up with this 1969 album of Ike Turner instrumental tracks, mislabeled as his 1963 album Rocks the Blues. The album veers from early rock to blues and funk, and all the tracks seem ripe for a sample hound to throw together some amazing rhythm and blues-inspired beats. Dig some favourites from the album below.

Ike Turner, “Thinking Black”

Ike Turner, “Black Beauty”
