Ike & Tina Turner - Nutbush City Limits (1973)

by Dick Mac

This is the end of my week-long tribute to Ike & Tina Turner.

Today's video is the only one of the videos that is an Ike & Tina original. "Nutbush City Limits" was written by Tina, produced by Ike, and the studio recording features the late Marc Bolan, the boyfriend of former Ikette Gloria Jones, on guitar.

You might recognize Bolan's name as the leader of the glam rock group T.Rex, who in the early- and mid-1970s enjoyed success on the US charts. He is known to have played guitar on a number of the band's songs.

Tina was born in Nutbush, Tennessee, and this song was the last charting single for Ike & Tina Turner.
