Editorial Reviews

Released as a tie-in to Tina Turner's fall 2008 tour of North America, Tina! Follows her last greatest-hits album All the Best: The Hits by a mere three years and it has the same number of tracks as it's predecessor, six of which are songs shared between the two compilations. This makes Tina! Feel similar to All the Best but it's a different compilation in many ways, with a broader scope, reaching back for "River Deep Mountain High" and "The Acid Queen," neither of which were on the 2005 comp, and containing two previously unreleased bonus tracks. It also contains a hefty dose of live tracks - "Let's Stay Together," "I Can't Stand the Rain," and "The Best," are all present in live versions - her James Bond theme "Goldeneye" and a 1993 re-recording of "Proud Mary."

By Ed Uyeshima HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on October 22, 2008
Format: Audio CD
For the first time, I had the bucket-list pleasure of seeing Tina Turner perform live this past Sunday at San Jose's HP Pavilion. For a woman approaching her 69th birthday and celebrating her fiftieth anniversary as a performer, she is a genuine force of nature - still as striking as ever and showing even more passion with her familiar repertoire. In conjunction with Turner's all-stops-pulled tour, Capitol has released yet another greatest hits compilation but this time following the order of the concert set list. Your appetite for this release will depend on how many of the other collections you own. There are several on the market already - 1991's Simply the Best, 1993's What's Love Got To Do With It (the soundtrack to her biopic), 2005's All the Best: The Hits - not including all the live recordings on CD and DVD and her legendary work with her ex-husband Ike. However, if you have not been a fervent follower since her 1984 breakout, Private Dancer, this is an especially worthwhile purchase.

There are eighteen tracks in all that cover the broad scope of Turner's career. Her years as the distaff half of Ike & Tina Turner are book-ended by the Phil Spector-produced "River Deep, Mountain High" from 1966 with his signature Wall of Sound in full force, and the autobiographical "Nutbush City Limits" replete with Memphis-style horns from 1971.

When I saw that Tina was set to tour again, my hope was that there would be a new album of songs. My fear was that Capitol would do yet another greatest hits CD. That's what we got here. It's good for the 2 new songs, I'M READY , which rocks, and IT WOULD BE A CRIME, which is good too. As for the other added bonus type tracks not on any other Tina CD, there are 2 nicely rearranged live in concert versions from 1999 of LET'S STAY TOGETHER and I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN that are a pleasant surprise to hear this way. And lo and behold, they dug up a real rarity, the soundtrack version from the film " TOMMY " of Tina's version of THE ACID QUEEN, which is something new to have on a Tina hits CD [ and a different version than on her " ACID QUEEN " 1975 solo album ].

But overall, I wish that this was a RARITIES release. What's the point with dragging up the hits yet again? It was done just a couple years ago with the far superior ALL THE BEST, then the one disc ALL THE BEST-THE HITS. And don't forget her best-selling SIMPLY THE BEST from 1991, the McDonalds promotion CD , GREATEST HITS from 1994, and the box set SIXTIES TO NINETIES. Geez, the greatest hits have been done to death! And still ONE OF THE LIVING from " MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME " has not made any of these greatest hits CD's. It charted at #15, the video was shown all over the place, and yet it's only on the soundtrack CD, and the scarce promotional 1993 Tina hits compilation PLAY THIS IN STORE. Tina must really hate ONE OF THE LIVING as it has not been on any CD since it's original release. Too bad, as it's a great recording that won her a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance, Female.

I would have loved a RARITIES CD, and it would have collected the many non-LP tracks, B-sides, and soundtrack songs.

This is the first Tina Turner CD I've ever bought and it's awesome! I've been listening to her for years and this collection does not disappoint. It has her older stuff ("Nutbush City Limits", "Proud Mary", "River Deep, Mountain High"), 80's stuff ("Better Be Good to Me", "Private Dancer", "What's Love Got to Do With It?"), movie stuff ("Acid Queen", "We Don't Need Another Hero", "Goldeneye") and newer stuff ("It Would be a Crime", "I'm Ready") as well as some live covers ("Let's Stay Together", "Addicted to Love"). And more! This is a great introduction to Tina as well as just a handy collection of some her greatest hits. Well worth having!

I think that there are no words to describe Tina Turner. She has been around for 5 decades with success (something very difficult for a singer) and now at almost 70 she is fantastic as always.
This cd comes out next with her latest world tour and even tough I also think that she could have released a new album, is still a wonderful surprise because from all her collections, this one has a great balance. 18 tracks that take you on a journey from 1966 to her latest recordings in 2008. I know that there are several hits missing in this production such as "TYPICAL MALE", "MISSING YOU", "ONE OF THE LIVING" (a Top 15 hit that also gave Tina a Grammy back in 1986 that has never appeared on any Tina compilation), "I DON'T WANNA LOSE YOU", "WHEN THE HEARTACHE IS OVER" or her hit duets such as "IT'S ONLY LOVE" next to Bryan Adams or "IT TAKES TWO" next to Rod Stewart. But there are always going to be songs left behind. But I think that the songs from this new collection make a good balance between them. One of the highlights of this production is "THE ACID QUEEN". There are several versions of this song but this one is the very best. It has a great sound and Tina's performance is flawless. In the case of "LET'S STAY TOGETHER" and "I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN" that appear here in live versions (that was a very good choice) next to "ADDICTED TO LOVE" from Robert Palmer that Tina has been singing sience 1986 and is the classic Tina live track . They all sound very good. Tina's live performances are very powerful. In the case of the two new songs, once again I have to say that I'm very happy for Tina because her voice is still very strong and both tracks represent Tina's style through the years.
