  • claptonrocks changed the title to Tina Turner passes..

In July 1972 there was an outdoor concert at Bosse Field in Evansville, IN.  Ike and Tina Turner were supposed to be the headliners and definitely put on a great show.  I say supposed to be headliners because a lot of folks were there to see Jim Dandy and Black Oak Arkansas who rocked the place.  There were several other bands... Country Joe and the Fish, Howlin Wolf, New Riders of the Purple Sage and Spirit.  There were also a few other acts as well.

With apologies to CCR her version of "Proud Mary" is definitive, but she really shined after dumping Ike. Proceeded to break the mold & stayed relevant right up to the end, unlike so many of her peers from that era.
