EDITORS’ NOTES

Tina Turner’s 1984 comeback updates the Southern funk ‘n’ soul she pioneered in the ‘60s with synthesizer tones and hard rock bravado. On “I Can’t Stand the Rain,” she injects Ann Peebles’ torch song with overwhelming emotion, and the husky-voiced title track is simultaneously downcast and defiant. She’s the consummate survivor, lending raw, almost feral intensity to “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and demanding that the world “Show Some Respect.” Members of synth-pop group Heaven 17 handle much of the production, crafting Turner’s manifesto of personal independence into an album for the ages.

It's BACK!!

So glad this album was re-released. It's been over 30 years, and it sounds just as fresh as ever!!!! We miss your recordings, TINA!!!

2nd disc screw up!

Basically tracks 18 through 22 are not mastered propoerly, the last couple seconds of track 18 is found at the beginning of track 19 and the last couple seconds of track 19 is found at the beginning of track 20 and so on and so on

Not sure who "remastered" this exactly but they should be fired for making such a glaringly obvious mistake, and shame on iTunes for not quality checking the albums they make available to the public

So glad I listened to the samples before purchasing this one . . . but if that problem gets fixed then this album would be an excellent addition to any music library

Queen of Rock & Roll will live forever!

Tina Turner has always been about the music and performance vs today's celebrity who is focused on the life of celebrity.
