An hour of Ike and Tina Turner, live! Plus more musical clips!

Now let's go live with Ike and Tina Turner! That's almost an hour of live clips (via madamjujujive). The same YouTube user who uploaded this also posted a similar set, if not the same thing, labeled "Live in '71." But how could that be, if some of the film was from the Playboy After Dark variety show (SFW Wikipedia page), which was syndicated in 1969 and 1970? What, you're not familiar with that show? OK, this YouTube playlist of musical performances from the show might be relevant to your interests. And don't miss Sammy Davis Jr. doing his thing on the show.

Black musicians interpret the Stones

It's no secret that throughout their long career, the Rolling Stones have covered lots of tunes by black singers and bands from the worlds of soul, blues, R&B, reggae and early rock'n'roll, and have, of course, been heavily influenced by these various genres in their own performance and songwriting. Perhaps a bit lesser known is that several of the most iconic and legendary figures in black music have covered Stones songs as well. Here's Brown Sugar by Little Richard, Satisfaction by Aretha Frankilin and Otis Redding, Under My Thumb by Tina Turner, Start Me Up by Toots and the Maytals and, rather unexpectedly, Let's Spend the Night Together by blues great Muddy Waters
