Following this, the band returned to the United States in demand despite not having a big hit. By 1968 , they were performing and headlining in Las Vegas . That year, they signed with Blue Thumb Records and released the first of two albums with them, the first of which, Outta Season , included their modest hit cover of " I've Been Loving You Too Long " (a song originally sung and written by Otis Redding). The second Blue Thumb release, The Hunter , followed in 1969, and included their modest hit cover of the Albert King hit as well as an original composition titled "Bold Soul Sister". Tina's rendition of "The Hunter" led to the singer receiving her first solo Grammy nomination in 1970. Prior to the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, Ike had lived a teetotal , drug and alcohol free life. Following the success of the Revue, however, Ike began smoking marijuana and, later, cocaine , after being introduced the drug by, he says, "two famous Las Vegas headliners". [22] In 1968, after another violent confrontation with Ike, Tina bought 50 Valiums and swallowed them all in an attempt to end her life before a show in Los Angeles; Tina eventually recovered. [23]

The couple shared one son, Ronald, and in Turner's book, she revealed she had an abortion after learning Ike had gotten one of the duo's back-up singers pregnant.

In high school, Turner joined a local rhythm ensemble called the Tophatters who played dances around Clarksdale, Mississippi . [3] Members of the band were Clarksdale musicians and included Turner's school friends Raymond Hill , Eugene Fox and Clayton Love . [25] The Tophatters played big-band arrangements from sheet music . Turner, who was trained by ear and could not sight read , would learn the pieces by listening to a version on record at home, pretending to be reading the music during rehearsals . [3] At one point, the Tophatters had over 30 members and eventually split into two, [26] with one act who wanted to carry on playing dance band jazz calling themselves the Dukes of Swing and the other, led by Turner, becoming the Kings of Rhythm. Said Turner, "We wanted to play blues , boogie-woogie and Roy Brown , Jimmy Liggins , Roy Milton ." [3] Turner kept the name throughout his career, although it went through lineup changes over time. Their early stage performances consisted largely of covers of popular jukebox hits. . King helped them to get a steady weekend gig and recommended them to Sam Phillips at Sun Studio . [27] In the 1950s, Turner's group got regular airplay from live sessions on WROX-Am, [19] and KFFA radio in Helena, Arkansas . [28]
