Detailed Track Listings

We selected three albums which – as far as we know – never saw the laser light before. So, you might know several songs like “Living For the City” or “Mississippi Rolling Stone” from a Greatest-Hits-collection but maybe only your grandmother has the actual LP at home. Or you surely know “We Need An Understanding” but you might not know all the other tracks from “Airwaves”. And you surely think that the live version of “Annie Had A Baby” is better than the studio version, but you surely don´t have the studio version from “Let Me Touch Your Mind” because it was recorded again for the “Nutbush City Limits” album. So, bottom line is: there is much to discover on these reissues, and especially the never-released-before-on-CD ones are extremely interesting.

  1. Great releases! I particularly love the whole ‘Delilah’s Power’ album, and many songs from ‘Sweet Rhode Island Red’.

    1. Bonjour Olivier,
      Croisé les doigts et attendre 😉 Mais n’étant pas un classique de Tina, peu de chance à mon humble avis de le voir réédité en version remasterisé… but you never know 😉
      Merci de ton com’

  2. i wrote to BGO some time ago and they have no plans to release any other albums from Tina. why they didn’t chose Tina Turns the country on’ i do not understand. That would be the release we are all waiting for. At least we got ’nuff said, come together and sweet rhode island red, which were never issued on cd before
