'3 O'Clock Blues' - Ike & Tina Turner

When you hear the names 'Ike & Tina Turner' you probably only think about domestic violence, drug use, and the wild media fire surrounding their marriage.

However they were a musical force back in the day; they were responsible for many hits in the 60's and 70's like 'Proud Mary', won Grammy's and were inducted in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. Ike's guitar playing and Tina's soulful voice won them a lot of fans and recognition.

What's interesting is that they recorded a pure blues track, the standard '3 O'Clock Blues' which was originally by Lowell Fulson in 1948, but is most known to be a standard BB King tune as he made it famous in 1951.

It's a great version, and Tina rips through the blues while Ike's lead guitar fits the bill quite nicely.
