A "history lesson" on the "Grandmother of Rock"
on March 20, 2003
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.
