Some great news for all of us fans that just popped up this week!
First, Ike & Tina coming on Blu-Ray. A pair of classic Sixties concert films, 1964’s T.A.M.I. Show and its 1966 follow-up The Big T.N.T. Show, will come to Blu-ray together for the first time this December as a two-disc collection’s edition. For the Blu-ray release, both films received a high-definition transfer, as evidenced by the first sample of the upcoming release: Ike & Tina Turner’s explosive cover of James Brown’s “Please, Please, Please” from The Big T.N.T. Show. Pre-Order here!
Second, Goldenlane records is set to release a 3 cd Box Set of Ike & Tina Turner recordings under the Pompeii Label. Between 1960 and 1970, the groundbreaking, erratic, and turbulent couple/duo recorded music for a whopping ten plus record labels resulting in nearly 70 singles and some 20 albums. According to a press release, during these recordings Ike & Tina “toured regularly both here and abroad (reportedly averaging some 300 shows a year), made frequent television appearances, and managed to raise a family.”
Anyhow, from 1968-1969, the duo cut a plethora of songs with Pompeii Records, and now the catalog is available on a 3-CD set dubbed ‘The Complete Pompeii Recordings 1968-1969.’
The 3-CD box set will be available starting September 23 from Goldenlane Records, a division of Cleopatra Records, Inc. Pre-Order here!
We will review the BluRay & the Boxset as soon as we’ll get them so stay tune!
In 2009, we got something from Tina Turner which we did not expect at all. What happens if a rock star, a member of the entertainment business and your personal hero suddenly confronts you with personal and even religious beliefs? As you somehow cannot ignore what your hero is doing you have to deal with it….
Tina was spotted today in Rotterdam, attending the opening of Peter Lindbergh photo exhibition. Tina has been photographed many times by the artist, their most famous collaboration being the Hanes campaign and the Missing You video clip that Lindbergh shot in 1996.
Our Queen looks totally stunning at nearly 77 (don’t forget the #TINA77 hashtag on Nov.26) and these pictures are a boost of energy for all of us fans! Thanks to the all the photographers who shared their pic on Instagram.
Tina Turner Live in Amsterdam – September 1996 – Mark Allan/Alpha
By Ben – I am pretty sure that 20 years after her three legendaries concerts at (at the time brand new) Amsterdam Arena, Tina Turner’s voice still resonates inside the stadium. Not a single time have i passed in front of this giant monument without thinking of these concerts. I guess I can talk in Sjef’s name to say it’s probably the same for him. 1996. Wildest Dreams Tour. 3 nights, 160,000 cheering fans from across the world attending the rendez- vous given by the 57 years old Lioness. Massive promotion, massive production, massive crowd, and you can always count on the Dutch to pays Tina her dues.
I’ve probably watched and listened, dissected and studied this concert more than it is allowed until a few weeks ago, fellow Tina fan Jamie told us about an unseen tv version. He found out…
August, 17th 1984 – Let´s go back to 1984, zoom in to August in the time dimension, narrow it down to the evening of the 17th, and find a location called the Park West. We might even add that we have a ticket – one of not more than 800-1000 – to a concert of a newcomer – or rather an old war horse but now in new armor and carrying new arrows in her quiver: Tina Turner will play the Park West tonight on her “Private Dancer Tour”.

Teach Us Again Tina! Exciting news for all the Beyond fans out there! A very nice sneak peek video from the recording of the upcoming Beyond album has emerged earlier on Youtube. And guess what! Parts of the music from the album are recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the legendary London’s Abbey Road Studio where Tina recorded her classic hit Let’s Stay Together among others!
What do we know so far? The new Beyond album, ‘Music For Peace’ will feature Buddhist nun singing for freedom, Ani Choying Drolma as well as Jewish Sephardic singer Mor Karbasi. The great Regula Curti, the creator of the Beyond albums will once again unite her voice with the mesmerizing Sawani Shende. Tibetan singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay however won’t be featured on the new album, currently promoting her Day Tomorrow album.
Also some news on the production side! The arranger of the previous Beyond albums, Roland Frei will team up with Kareem Roustom, an Emmy nominated composer who has composed music for film, television, the concert hall and album projects. Steeped in the musical traditions of the Near East and trained in Western concert music and Jazz, Syrian-born Kareem Roustom is a musically bilingual composer who has collaborated with a wide variety of artists.
This all sound very promising of course and we can’t wait to hear more from the upcoming Beyond IV: Uniting Culture and let’s not hide it, so we can delight us from the hypnotic voice of Tina once more!
We send Peace & Light to everyone involved in the project!
