  1. Don’t forget Tina’s cover of ‘Let It Be’.
    Starting with “When I find myself in times of trouble, evil thoughts they come to me, takin’ away my wisdom…” great cover!

  2. I have always loved her covers of Help, get back, honk tonk just to name a few. No one even the originals do these songs like Tina. Help has a very spiritual mood to it, that’s why I like it so much and Tina gives you hope when she sings it.

    1. Technically, the Beatles covered Twist and Shout. It was done by another group I can’t think of originally and then the Isley Brothers.

      Love that shot of Tina. I’d heard it described but never had seen it. Is there any footage of the shows she opened for/and sang with Lionel Richie around?

  3. Nice & great, guys!
    There is also “With a little help of my friends”; you can watch her singing it at the 1972 Hits A-Go-Go Concert.
    Wonderful picture!! What about it?
