Since this blog is called Tina Turner Blog well maybe we have to talk to you a bit about Tina Turner’s new release.That’s right, a new release!  Well according to Parlophone…  Because of course, there’s nothing new about this new “Love Song” compilation, even not the cover.  No new songs or previously unreleased tracks, just classics put together to sell a couple of cd’s on Valentine’s Day. And don’t expect 74-year old Turner to make any promotional appearances in support of the album, as she is “happily retired” from the music business according to her spokesperson.

So, until something more relevant comes from Mr Roger Davies & Parlophone, we thought we might refresh their memories with 6 reasons (there’s probably a thousand more) why Tina should be celebrated in 2014. Continue reading

What’s love got to do with it? The soundtrack to Tina’s life

Tina Turner - What´s Love Got To Do With It - Album

As we know from today´s point of view, Tina Turner was in the middle of her career when the biographical movie “What´s Love Got To Do With It” – named after her signature song and USA #1 hit – was released in 1993. The movie was based upon the book from 1986 “I, Tina” which she co-wrote with the music journalist Kurt Loder and which featured many interviews with contemporary witnesses like band/family members, music colleagues, and Tina Turner herself. Maybe it was even not clear to herself that there would be new albums and tours until the year 2009 which makes the release of a bio pic only reasonable if you consider her age in 1993 when she was 53. But there were still at least 15 years to come – full of appearances and releases. Because of the heavy ammunition she fired at the world – an album incl. re-recordings and completely new material, the release of several songs from that album incl. the usual marketing appearances, the movie itself and then even a US tour plus some festival appearances in Europe and Australia – the year 1993 will always be a year to remember.
