Ike & Tina Turner - The Legends Live in '71

This February 1971 performance was originally taped in the Netherlands for Dutch TV, and though the picture quality is spotty and the crowd oddly sedate, the Revue rocks full throttle—from the band’s soulful instrumental take on Buddy Miles’ “Them Changes” and the Ikettes’ spunky, short-skirted entrance to Tina’s gritty, revved-up soul belting. Today’s TRL pop icons take heed: this video is undeniable proof you can dance your ass off without having to lip sync. And, while I have you on the line, the wrap-around headset mic’s not fooling anybody.
