Ike & Tina Turner – Nutbush City Limits 1973 – vynil 45° – 7″ en.wikipedia.org “Nutbush City Limits” is a semi-autobiographical rock and roll song written and performed by Tina Turner, in which she describes her hometown of Nutbush, Tennessee. As an unincorporated town, Nutbush does not actually have “city limits”; but it does have a “Nutbush – Unincorporated” sign on the highway Original 1973 recording The original recording was produced by Ike Turner in 1973 and released by the couple under their professional name Ike & Tina Turner. The song was taken from an album of the same title, and proved to be the duo’s final significant chart hit, reaching #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on the UK Singles Chart. Following the couple’s split, the song became a staple of Tina’s live show, where she re-worked the funky studio version into a hard-driving rock and roll showstopper. Marc Bolan is rumoured to have played guitar on this track. Although Gloria Jones stated definitely that he did on the film for the 2007 BBC4 Documentary Marc Bolan: The Final Word, it remains in doubt. However it is widely acknowledged that Bolan contributed to the later single “Sexy Ida”. Gloria provided backing vocals for Ike and Tina Turner in the 1960s so the story does stand up, especially as the guitar sound is very much like Bolan’s. Bolan toured the US extensively in the mid-70s and lived in LA for over a year from 1974.
