The soundtrack shows the many facets of Turner's career, from her hard-edged R & B years with former husband Ike ("Rock Me Baby", "A Fool in Love", and "Proud Mary") to her struggling disco/Las Vegas era ("Disco Inferno") to her triumphant "rediscovery" and rebirth in the mid-80's (the mega-selling title cut and "I Don't Wanna Fight").
The Bryan Adams penned "Why Must We Wait Until Tonight?" should've been released as a single. It is Tina at her sultriest and grittiest, the mix that makes her the definitive performer that she is.
The album's only shortcoming is the omission of Turner's "Let's Stay Together", the song that really brought her back into the public eye after years of musical obscurity.
That reduces the rating by one star.

TINA'S RASPY, RAW, UNIQUE VOICE SHINES BRIGHTER THAN EVER ON THIS SOUNDTRACK ALBUM FROM THE MOVIE OF HER LIFE. TO HEAR FRESH INTERPRETATIONS OF THESE SONGS DATING BACK TO 1960 IS STUNNING,ALL THE TRACKS ON THIS ALBUM WERE RE-RECORDED FOR THE FILM WITH THE EXCEPTIONS OF "WHATS LOVE" AND "I MIGHT HAVE BEEN QUEEN". THE NEW VERSONS OF "PROUD MARY", "A FOOL IN LOVE", "IT GONNA WORK OUT FINE" AND OTHERS REMINDS US THAT TINA JUST KEEP GETTIN BETTER WITH AGE, HER VOCALS ARE SENSATIONAL ON ALL THE TRACKS. ALSO OF NOTE IS THE THEME SONG "I DONT WANNA FIGHT" WHICH WENT TO #9 ON THE US CHARTS, AND SPAWNED TO GRAMMY NOMINATIONS. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ALBUM.

Tina Turner rerecorded songs from her past to make her movie and they are all here on this CD soundtrack. The only one missing is "River Deep Mountain High."
Her new version of "Proud Mary" rocks even more than her original with Ike Turner. The one on the album is with Laurence Fishburn who played Ike in the film.
She rerecords some of our past favorites and really captures the energy of the film that it came from. This is a definite must-have for even the slightest of Tina Turner fans.

When I first saw the movie "Tina: What's Love got to do with it", I was struck by the soundtrack that included many excellent Ike & Tuna Turner songs (re-recorded and better than the originals) and new ones like "Stay awhile". I simply had to find this album and managed to locate it. I did not hesitate to purchase this CD, and I believe this to be one of Tina's finest works. Each song has meaning and you can relate it to you own life experiences. Each song displays Tina's great talent and range and this CD has depth to it that so few other can boast. A must have for fans and non-fans alike.

This CD contains some new tracks ( including the Terry Britten penned "Stay awhile") and some new versions of Ike & Tina classics. It's nice to hear new versions of "A Fool in Love", "it's gonna work out fine" and other classics. Personally however I prefer the original recordings by Ike and Tina. Especially the new version of "Nutbush City limits" and "Proud Mary" are much worse than the original. The real soundtrack to Tina's life has still to be released ! The "collected recordings sixties to nineties" (Capitol /1994) comes much closer than this. P.S. The European version contains 14 tracks.

Whats Love is the soundtrack to the movie about Tinas life. It starts off with the apropriate theme song to the movie. I Dont Wanna Fight. Other highlights include Disco Inferno, Proud Mary, and the new songs Stay Awile and Why Must We Wait Until Tonight.

I was looking for the original recordings of some of Ike and Tina's songs. They are not here. The re-recorded material is ok, yet lacks the sound and vocal intensity of the originals; like 'Nutbush City Limits', for example. Where is her work with Phil Spector? There should be an "expanded" edition of this soundtrack with some of the original recordings that include or are intertwined with the film's original score.

I saw the movie and liked the songs in it. I ordered the soundtrack from the movie, but it was not the soundtrack. They have a dubbed another person in on Ike's part. All the songs from the movie were not on the soundtrack and some other of Tina's were included. I feel that if it is going to be advertised as a soundtrack then it should be a true soundtrack. I was disappointed.

1993, was a very good year for Tina, she came back with a new production that wasn't actually a brand new album, it was the soundtrack of her autobiography sended to the big screen. The movie was "What's love got to do with it", the movie was a blockbuster and both main actors were nominated for the Oscar, they didn't win but Angela Bassett won the Golden Globe for Best atress, back in 1994.
This cd was a big hit for Tina all over the world, actually Tina used to appear on the covers of the magazines, while the first single, "I don't wanna fight" made it to #9 in the Hot 100 and #1 in the Hot Adult Contemporary.
For the soundtrack Tina re-recorded several of her early hits from the 60's and 70's. Tina's label decided to make two editions of the soundtrack. The European with 14 tracks and the American with 12.
The songs that did not appear on the US edition were old hits which are: "shake a tail feather" and "Tina's wish".
There's one thing that I don't understand about Tina in the US, how come she has big hits in Europe that never arrived to the US, such as the theme of the 1996's James Bond, Goldeneye, or Tina's latest European hit "Whatever you need", it's maybe because her record company doesn't promote her as they should in The US.
That's a mistery actually that we'll never know.
