Best of Musikladen Review

by Tom Schulte

Musikladen was a televised German monthly music show originally known as Beat Club. Many star groups of the '50s, '60s, and '70s participated. Ike and Tina get a full dose of the kaleidoscopic, hall-of-mirrors effect. Tina also has some disco-boy dancers for these 1971 and 1974 recordings. Often wearing barely enough material to pad a crutch and bearing a developing voice that became a pop/rock signature, Tina was at this time a talented singer/dancer at the center of Ike's outfit. This half-hour video includes "Get Back," "Higher," "Honky Tonk Woman," "River Deep Mountain High," "Proud Mary," "Nutbush City Limits," "Delilah's Power," and from her role in Tommy that elevated her status, "Acid Queen."
