Red vinyl pressings of this album may have been issued only as promotional items. We’re not sure, but every stock (non-promotional) copy we’ve seen was pressed on black vinyl.
About this copy: This copy of What You Hear is What You Get is an original 1971 white label promotional pressing on the Liberty label, pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl.
The cover is VG++, with slight foxing and a couple of song times written on the inside of the cover next to the song listings.
The obi is M-; the “hojyuhyo,” or reorder tag, is still attached. The insert is M-.
The original white paper envelope-style sleeves that were used only on promotional copies are included.
The red vinyl white label promo discs are M-, on sides 1,2, and 4, with a couple of faint sleeve scuffs.
Side three is VG++, with a couple of scuffs that are likely inaudible.
These discs appear to have only been played once or twice.
A nice copy of a rare Ike & Tina Turner set.
Background: Released in 1971, What You Hear is What You Get was the seventh live album by Ike & Tina Turner.
The album reached #25 on the U.S. album chart.
The duo were at their peak of popularity when this hour-long performance was recorded in New York on April 1, 1971. …Tina drains every last bit of emotion from the material, especially on the bluesy “I Smell Trouble” and the drawn-out covers of “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and “Proud Mary,” and the band offers a cookin’ stew of R&B-soul-rock, paced by Ike’s reverberating guitar.
