Teena Records

Teena Records was a record label founded by R&B duo Ike & Tina Turner in 1963. Ike Turner named the label after his wife Tina Turner. Records on Teena were distributed by CIRCA distributing firm. CIRCA was formed in 1962 to operate as a releasing company for independent labels by working with various distributors around the US. While the Ike & Tina Turner Revue were on the road performing, Ike Turner found time to record the artist in his band. Turner used this label to release singles by vocalist within the Revue, notably the Ikettes, he produced all the songs on the label. The second single, "Prisoner in Love" by the Ikettes, was changed to "No Bail in This Jail" in order to avoid confusion with "Prisoner of Love" by James Brown. "No Bail In This Jail" reached #126 on Billboard's Bubbling Under The Hot 100. Sonja Records Innis Records Sony Records Prann Records List of record labels

Rue Garibaldi

The Rue Garibaldi is a wide and long street in Lyon, located in the 7th, 3rd and 6th arrondissements, named after Italian politician Giuseppe Garibaldi. There was a square named Place Garibaldi in reference to his nephews, died during the World War I; the street was called rue Sainte-Élisabeth in reference to the sister of Louis XVI, Élisabeth of France. It was named rue Garibaldi after the deliberation of the municipal council on 1 March 1871 was renamed rue Sainte-Élisabeth, renamed rue Garibaldi on 6 July 1882, it was built throughout the 19th century from the Cours Vitton. In 1913, the rue Rave became part of the street. However, the extreme urbanization of the street causes a large number of nuisance to inhabitants of buildings, including noise, dangerous traffic; the street was the subject of several renovations from 1975. The city of Lyon is rehabilitating the street modifying it in a "greenway"; this project would include the reduction in the number of lanes in the 3rd arrondissement and the creation of terraces and tree-lined sidewalks.

In addition, with the construction of the Tour Incity in 2012 which will have its main entrance on the rue Garibaldi, it will again undergo rehabilitation. This project will cost about 5 million euro. There was in the street a Masonic temple built by architect Peter Martin. Many political meetings took place at the restaurant Guillerme at No. 108. Television host Simone Garnier lived in the street; the street is surrounded by trees and high buildings with around 20 floors, built from 1950. It begins after the Boulevard des Belges in the north of the 6th arrondissement, ends on the Avenue Berthelot in the 7th arrondissement in the south; this is one of the longest streets in the city, as well as the rue de Créqui, the rue Duguesclin or the Avenue Jean Jaurès with 3,850 meters. It looks like a highway, sometimes composed of 5 lines. In most of the 3rd arrondissement, the street is impassable by pedestrians, who must borrow an underpass to cross. Near the rue Duquesne, there are large buildings with golden and rounding doors.

Around the Cours Vitton, the street is more narrow with five-floor older stone buildings, old houses including the city hall of the 6th arrondissement, more recent and high buildings. After the Cours Lafayette, a twenty-floor tour with golden windows can be seen tax offices, a bank and the Grand Lyon appear as three glass buildings in a cubic form; the street ends with new homes and vacant lots.
