26 years ago today, Tina Turner performed three songs on Dutch television. She appeared on a TV-show for the promotion of album sales in the Netherlands, called the ‘Platen 10 Daagse’. She presented two songs from her new record Break Every Rule: Typical Male and Two People, as well as the classic Private Dancer. Tina is introduced by television presenter Ron Brandsteder, and she also appears in the finale of the show.

In 1986, Tina Turner recorded her version of the Al Green classic Take Me To The River, also famous in the version by Talking Heads. The song was only released as a b-side to her 1987 single What You Get Is What You See from her Break Every Rule album. The song was never released in any other form. Below, you can listen to this song!
A classic from the Break Every Rule tour: Tina Turner performing Two People, live at Rockódromo de la Casa de Campo in Madrid, Spain. The show was broadcast in parts live on the radio, on May 17, 1987. Unfortunately, the radio DJ’s finds it necessary to talk in between, but also during the songs, as if reporting on a football match. Therefore, the beginning of this audio track is slightly ruined, but what is left is still a very nice version of ‘Dos Personas’, the second European single of Tina’s 1986 Break Every Rule album. Enjoy!
