‘Break Every Rule’ Interview

tina turner break every rule interview cd lp .png

“People come and say ‘I have to get your autograph because my son is always trying to get me to go back to work and I say ‘no I am too old’ and they say ‘well, Tina Turner did it’! It seems that I have broken all the rules!”

Back in 1986, Tina Turner was heavily promoting the follow up album to the masterpiece Private Dancer, her second solo album, Break Every Rule. To support the release,  Tina recorded a long interview as promo material for the radio. Here is today!

The interview is 55 minutes long and a lot of subjects are reviewed:

Of course, Tina talks about the recording and the songs of her album BER but also about her autobiography I, Tina, her relationship with Ike, David Bowie and much more. A very candid and fun Tina who sometimes reveals more that you would expect! And that’s what we like!

Everything under the sun

Tina Turner - Australia Live .jpgIf you mention River Deep Mountain High to any music connaisseur, they’ll mention Tina Turner & Phil Spector. The masterpiece created by the two is the most famous songs of their collaboration but of course more B-sides and rare tracks have emerged over the years. And you can always count on a friend to get you back to those gems! Earlier today, TINA fan & friend Enrico send me remastered version of ‘A man is a man is man’, ‘Two to Tango’, ‘Down Down’ & ‘Watcha Gonna Do’ and offered to share them on the blog! So here their along with a very interesting story by David Young about Turner & Spector work.

‘The Story of Tina Turner ‘Every Under The Sun”
By David Young for the Spectropop Group

Since the late 1970s, tapes have circulated among collectors of Tina Turner singing a Spectoresque version of the song “Everything Under the Sun,” written by Bob Crewe and Gary Knight. After remaining in the vaults for ten years, the song had seen official release in 1976 in a Spector-produced version by The Ronettes on the Phil Spector International compilation Rare Masters Vol. 2, and had previously been issued in radically differing versions by The Walker Brothers and Jackie DeShannon.

Tina live in Chicago 1984 – CD & LP

Tina Turner Live Park West - Chicago 1984 - CD (2016)

August, 17th 1984 – Let´s go back to 1984, zoom in to August in the time dimension, narrow it down to the evening of the 17th, and find a location called the Park West. We might even add that we have a ticket – one of not more than 800-1000 – to a concert of a newcomer – or rather an old war horse but now in new armor and carrying new arrows in her quiver: Tina Turner will play the Park West tonight on her “Private Dancer Tour”.

One Night in Paris

Tina Turner - Stade De France - Paris 2000

It was fifteen years ago today! Fifteen years! And yet it still feels like yesterday.

Back in 2000, Tina Turner was back on the road with the massive stadium Twenty Four Seven World Tour. And of course, France is always on the map when it comes to Tina tours.

Take a 60 years old Rock Legend, add a 2 hours non-stop show and 80.0000 people cheering and you’ll end up with probably the best concert you’ll ever seen!

And since we like celebrations on the Tina Turner Blog, let’s celebrate this amazing show with photos and audio from that evening!

Enjoy and let us know what you think! Oh and don’t miss the very special sing along version of “The Best”…

The boy from New York City

Ike & Tina Turner Live at Olympia Paris 1971

In the early nineties, one of my first cd i got after discovering Tina was “Ike & Tina Turner Live at the Olympia 71”. And i felt really lucky to have it while my collection was only flourishing… Most fans will tell you that they remember the exact time they heard certain songs, albums, the feeling of the moment and all the emotions that it gives…

Unfinished Business: Talk To All The Woman

Tina Turner - Twenty Four Seven - demo CD

A few days ago, we already posted a long-lost studio version of ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine‘ that was recorded for Tina Turner’s album ‘Twenty Four Seven’. But this was not the only new thing that could be found on a recently discovered test pressing of Tina’s 1999 final studio CD. Hero of the week Christian noticed that two songs that we already know appeared in a slightly different arrangement from the final cuts that you will find on the finished product. Namely, ‘All The Woman’ and ‘Talk To My Heart’ sound, well, unfinished, in a stripped-down arrangement. Tina’s vocal tracks however are the same as you can hear on the album. Sometimes it might so happen that one can prefer the demo version over the final mastered track. So, have a listen and let the music talk to your heart. And thanks again to Christian for sharing this with the Tina Turner fan community.

You Heard It… Through The Grapevine

Tina Turner - You Heard It Through The Grapevine

Don’t believe half of what you see, son, and none of what you hear. As Tina Turner fans, we are always looking for the holy grail. Better said, there are several holy grails: Tina recordings that we’ve only heard about… but never heard! For years, there has been a rumor flying around about  a studio version of ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’. The song appeared on some print promotional material for Tina’s 1999 album ‘Twenty Four Seven’ but was never actually released. Nobody knew if it really existed… until today. Thanks to Christian, who unearthed the song and shared it with us.

It is dance, it is disco; it is late nineties Europop. It took us by surprise, we must say. We don’t know what to think about it yet, but at least we’ve… heard it! What do you think? Listen to the song below, honey, honey!
