Ike & Tina Turner – Nutbush City Limits (1973)

In one corner was a purpose built students union building which, when not hosting gigs for a myriad of bands and artists, featured the almost essential Friday night SU disco. And, of the three tunes that were absolutely guaranteed to send me into a dance frenzy, Nutbush City Limits was very definitely one. Still does.
