Biography

Anna Mae Bullock was born in Tennessee, but moved to St. Louis as a teenager. There she met rock and roll performer Ike Turner and persuaded him to let her join his backing vocalists. Eventually Anna impressed Ike so much that he gave her equal-billing, and the new name "Tina". They became the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, and married in 1962. Through the 60s they forged a reputation as ... Read more in Amazon's Tina Turner Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There are those who will claim that this double-disc best-of is worth its price based on the inclusion of three new songs alone, and given their smolder, it's hard to argue with them. First single and disc one opener "Open Arms" is a stuff-strutting affair, with the leggy rock icon letting loose a vocal torrent to prove that in Tina years 60 is the new 25, not the new 40, and "Complicated Disaster" and "Something Special" don't sit uneasily alongside disc mates like "Typical Male" and "We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)." Undiminished vocals and still-vital rock instincts aside, though, the reason to pick up this anthology is its classics. Unlike 1991's Simply the Best which pulled from 1983 till then, All the Best reaches back to 1966 for the soul-steeped "River Deep Mountain High" and chugs through the decades, dipping into the '70s for the Ike'd-up hit "Nutbush City Limits" and hanging around the '80s and '90s for the bulk of 33 tracks. "Proud Mary," a 1993 rendition, keeps on burning, and "Private Dancer" and "What's Love Got to Do With It" land as seductively on the ears as ever, but the lesser-known numbers don't lack for heat either: too many spins of swamp-rocker "Steamy Windows," for example, may require new wiper blades. -Tammy La Gorce

Like almost all of the reviewers I would give this a 5 star rating for 2 reasons - 1.)This a is superior collection of Tina's music, and far more comprehensive than "Simply the best", and 2.) NEW TINA songs!

As a long time fan, most of the songs on this collection are familiar to me from my heavily played albums and singles Tina has released in the past. Thus, my ear was tuned to the new, and that is what I will focus on since I am pretty sure most people reading this know her hits well enough to sing along.

Disc 1 is a good mix of previously released material with a couple of exceptions. If you were lucky enough to see the lady perform during her TV push for "All the best" you saw her sing the current adult contemporary hit "Open Arms". This song took a few listenings for me really get into...at first blush I thought Tina was kicking her vocals up to make up for the straight ahead bland backdrop...well, now I no longer feel that way. This song has a wonderful, upbeat feel, and while in no way could you say this song "rocks", Tina does what her fans love about her, she delivers a feel good message of friendship wrapped around a very satisfying pop backdrop. This is exactly the song Tina should be recording now, and I think the spirit of this song is what Tina's fans take away from her live shows - good vibes and inner strength.

After that, the least well known track is the song Tina recorded for the Disney film "Brother Bear" called "Great Spirits". This song was written for Tina by Phil Collins, and has a pleasant Adult Contemporary feel with a satisfying backdrop complete with strings. Personally, I like this song, and I am glad it was included here since I did not want to purchase the soundtrack.

Disc 2 is where the new material really surfaces.

I always hear so much about artists that really are just too annoying. From manufactured artists like our Milli Vanilli Jennifer Lopez, to wannabes Madonna's like Britney Spears. Yet, we really seem to often forget about true and definitive legends. That has truly been that way with Cher, Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, and of course Tina Turner. Since her breakout in the late 50's, she came out with avengance. Yet, so many people did forget at a time, but she came back again still struting her stuff. Yet, with all he success, she still hasn't even stopped for a minute.

All The Best, the 2005 greatest hits collection is a very detailed reflection of Tina on her solo efforts away from her ex-hubby Ike Turner, and really displays her career since her massive comeback with Private Dancer in the 80's. The double album includes a lot of great songs here including hits like What's Love Got To Do WIth It, We Don't Need Another Hero from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, I Don't Wanna Fight, When The Heartache Is Over, and Goldeneye to name a few. The songs sound much better than her previous 1991 collection Simply The Best and really displays Tina very, very well. Yet, there is one downside to this collection. It really doesn't focus in on much of her days with Ike Turner, other than hits like River Deep, Mountain High and Proud Mary. Still, for die hard Tina fans, it really doesn't make much of a hastle.

While so many greatest hits collection don't stand out very well, Tina Turner's All The Best is a great hits collection that really brings out the best of a living legendary diva that is still standing today. Hopefully, the younger generation can really appreciate and listen to this icon.

I've always liked Tina Turner, but I've never really gotten into her music, so this CD has been a real treat. As the first song--"Open Arms"--says, "Whatever life throws at you, your friend is here," and looking at the photo on the cover of the album, it does indeed seem that Tina is a friend.
Some of the songs are perfect for "a woman of a certain age," such as "I Don't Wanna Lose You," which speaks of the need, at this age, to find a real, honest relationship.
"I Don't Wanna Fight" are the words of a rather world weary woman, who just wants peace--and love.
The incredible "River Deep, Mountain High," with its soaring music and moving lyrics, conveys volumes about the emotional intensity love can bring.
"And What You Get is What You See" adds a lively, bouncy beat, which makes you want to get up and dance.
And there are so many others, which I am just getting to know.
This is an amazing artist, whose personality--gutsy, passionate, and, at times, vulnerable, shines through the music, giving it a style all its own.

This compilation is everything that Tina's fans, whether diehard or casual, have been wishing for. Forget the earlier "Simply the best" compilation, this one is what you need to put your hands on.
The hits : from her early renditions of "Nutbush City Limits" and "River deep mountain high" right up to latter days smashes like "Missing you" and "When the heartache is over", and everything in between. Just look at the track listing and you'll see what I'm talking about : everything's in there.
The collaborations : this compilation includes a few pretty cool collaborations and duets with David Bowie, Bryan Adams, Sting and Eros Ramazotti.
The lesser known material : Tina has managed to include a few tracks that weren't necessarily her biggest hit singles, but that are an essential part of her repertoire. For instance : the beautiful and serene "Paradise is here", the funky "I can't stand the rain" and the live rendition of "Addicted to love", a song that Tina has been performing on stage ever since the mid-80s and that belongs to her as much as it belongs to Robert Palmer.
And of course, the new tracks : the new hit single "Open arms" (no, not the Journey song), "Complicated disaster" and the lovely "Something special".
The only minor complaint I have, is that Tina once again passed over "One of the living", a top ten hit single from 1985 that was on the soundtrack of "Mad Max 3". Of course, this song had been overshadowed by the enormous success of "We don't need another hero" from the same soundtrack (which is available on this compilation, of course !
