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?
2. There are 3 new tracks on the CD’s. How do you go about choosing that new material?
3. The first single is “Open Arms”. Tell us about your collaboration on that track (with Jimmy Hogarth)
4. Another new track is “Something Special”
5. Let’s talk about the track “Complicated Disaster”
6. Of course, “All The Best” also goes right back into the Ike and Tina Turner archive. “River Deep Mountain High”, for example
7. And the great old classic “Nutbush City Limits”…
8. We’ve also got “Proud Mary”, a classic written by Creedence Clearwater Revival’s John Fogerty
9. Please tell us about meeting Lulu, and her writing “I Don’t Want to Fight”
10. Looking back to the start of your solo success, you hooked up with the English electronist as Heaven 17. And with them you recorded the Al Green classic “Let’s Stay Together”
