tina-turner-recording-beyond-iv-spiritual-message-zurich-december-2016
It’s a picture we would like to see more often: TINA in a recording studio! Taken last December in Zurich, Tina looks radiant and appears very concentrated on her message! But don’t get your hopes too high, Miss Tina isn’t recording a new rock album, she is just putting her voice again on a few tracks for the upcoming Beyond album due to be released later this year. Apart from that, it’s been very quiet lately, TINA, The Musical is still in development and the first newsletter should arrive soon! Until then here’s a couple of new photos posted by the musical team on social networks.

The Kids from Nutbush

First, I must apologize for not reporting sooner on the 2016 Tina Turner Heritage Days but it is always difficult to write about an event that turned out to be some sort of life changing experience. It was a journey I had been looking forward to for years and after two weeks on the road with fellow TINA fan Dashon, time was finally there to discover the Tina Turner Museum and of course Nutbush, the lil’ old town in Tennessee.

The Pompeii Recordings (2016)

ike-tina-turner-complete-pompei-recordings-boxset-2016-cover

It was in the mail this morning… And it was a real surprise! I have lost track of the numerous re-releases of Ike & Tina Turner materials and the vast majority is just random songs put together with a random title and poor audio quality…But for this new release, Cleopatra Records has seen things in big and succeed!

The dynamic Ike & Tina Turner released all of these raw recordings for the Pompeii Label in the late 1960’s. This digitally remastered, deluxe 3D set features three complete albums (in mini sleeves that duplicate their original LP jackets) along with informative liner notes, photos, and much more!

During a fascinating career that was as triumphant and groundbreaking as it was erratic and turbulent, Ike & Tina Turner became one of the most prolific recording duos of their time. Between 1960 &; 1970 the pair cut for at least 10 different record labels resulting in nearly 70 singles and some 20 albums. This set which features material they released through Pompeii Records from 1968 and 1969, coincides closely – as well as confusingly – with titles released by the Blue Thumb label during those same years which would result in a total of 6 albums consisting of, for the most part, new material. Bear in mind, this was accomplished while the duo toured regularly both here and abroad (reportedly 300 shows a year), made innumerable television appearances, and managed to raise a family…

Please, Please, Please

Some great news for all of us fans that just popped up this week!

First, Ike & Tina coming on Blu-Ray. A pair of classic Sixties concert films, 1964’s T.A.M.I. Show and its 1966 follow-up The Big T.N.T. Show, will come to Blu-ray together for the first time this December as a two-disc collection’s edition. For the Blu-ray release, both films received a high-definition transfer, as evidenced by the first sample of the upcoming release: Ike & Tina Turner’s explosive cover of James Brown’s “Please, Please, Please” from The Big T.N.T. Show. Pre-Order here!

Second, Goldenlane records is set to release a 3 cd Box Set of Ike & Tina Turner recordings under the Pompeii Label. Between 1960 and 1970, the groundbreaking, erratic, and turbulent couple/duo recorded music for a whopping ten plus record labels resulting in nearly 70 singles and some 20 albums. According to a press release, during these recordings Ike & Tina “toured regularly both here and abroad (reportedly averaging some 300 shows a year), made frequent television appearances, and managed to raise a family.”

Anyhow, from 1968-1969, the duo cut a plethora of songs with Pompeii Records, and now the catalog is available on a 3-CD set dubbed ‘The Complete Pompeii Recordings 1968-1969.’

The 3-CD box set will be available starting September 23 from Goldenlane Records, a division of Cleopatra Records, Inc. Pre-Order here! 

We will review the BluRay & the Boxset as soon as we’ll get them so stay tune! And please, please, please, we want more releases like those!
