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!

Always loved this version 🙂
Muy buena, me encanto, nunca espero menos de una profesional del calibre de la Sra. Tina Turner. Gracias!!!!
I wonder if this track is another ´leftover´ from the Private Dancer sessions, since I believe it was produced by the guys who did Let´s Stay Together. I also remember reading somewhere that there were many songs recorded at that time which didn´t make it to any album.
You are right, it is produced by Martyn Ware of Heaven 17 / B.E.F., so it could be a leftover from the Private Dancer sessions.
