When you are a mega star like Tina Turner and you release a new album, it is impossible to promote it everywhere and answer favorably to every interview request. And so Interview CD’s are distributed by the record company to radio stations or other media outlets, to promote new release. Radio stations can use it in items about the new album. The All The Best interview CD features twenty three questions answered by TINA. The CD includes a list of questions. Listen to the interview below!

1. So, this is the first whole career retrospective for Tina Turner. I guess you must be mighty proud of your body of work. Do they all sound good to you?

4. Another new track is “Something Special”
5. Let’s talk about the track “Complicated Disaster”

Love it – Amazing how she just savages “Open Arms!” I wish she had followed her gut and put out something worthy of her.
I dont think (do correct me uf I am wrong) Tina sang ”Paradise is here” at Woburn Abbey, but she ended with ”Be tender with me baby” .
During Foreign Affair Farewell Tour in 1990 (as it was called in the beginning) she always ended with ”Be tender..”
All these interviews are great, Tina is not only a powerhouse and talented but she is very well spoken and intelligent. She often mentions the styles of music she has sung and what she enjoys singing and styles that she is tired of singing but she never mentions the country album, Tina turns on Country, this was a very, very good album, she totally dismisses this period in her life all together. The next interview should question her about this period in her life, I would love to know why she recorded this and why she never mention it in her many interviews.
Can you change the interview cds to be able to be downloaded again?
