The Big “Private Dancer” – Parade

Tina Turner - Private Dancer 2014Maybe you have heard about the releasometer, the latest invention of the old-world brick-and-mortar music industry where record companies actually sold records and not playlists. And in that outdated world, you used to be bombarded with various releases of albums incl. different covers (that is the house in which the record used to live because it could not survive on a hard drive alone), B-sides (that used to be tracks from the other side of the record´s children, the LP singles and maxi singles which again were the bigger brothers of the LP single…), and maybe unreleased tracks (ah, finally something our young readers know!). Well, back to the core of our subject: with that releasometer, you can measure how famous an album was because there was the following rule of thumb: “The more releases the more famous”.

And guess what, “Private Dancer” is preeeeetty famous because it scored very well on the releasometer. Read here, how well it scored, and we can only hope that it will score even better in the future.

Since this blog is called Tina Turner Blog well maybe we have to talk to you a bit about Tina Turner’s new release.That’s right, a new release!  Well according to Parlophone…  Because of course, there’s nothing new about this new “Love Song” compilation, even not the cover.  No new songs or previously unreleased tracks, just classics put together to sell a couple of cd’s on Valentine’s Day. And don’t expect 74-year old Turner to make any promotional appearances in support of the album, as she is “happily retired” from the music business according to her spokesperson.

So, until something more relevant comes from Mr Roger Davies & Parlophone, we thought we might refresh their memories with 6 reasons (there’s probably a thousand more) why Tina should be celebrated in 2014. Continue reading
