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…
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! Continue reading →
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”.
Tina Turner – Show Some Respect – Live in Chicago 1984:
Tina Turner’s classic album Private Dancer was a huge global success on its release in June 1984 and became Tina Turner’s breakthrough solo album, thanks in part to an 18-month single release schedule that saw no fewer than seven songs from the ten-track album released in various territories, including ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’,‘Better Be Good To Me’, ‘Private Dancer’ and a cover of Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’.
To celebrate this 30 year milestone we are releasing an extra special Anniversary Edition. This edition compiles the remastered album and a second disc which features Ball Of Confusion (That’s What The World Is Today) (with B.E.F.), recorded with Martin Ware from Heaven 17, and which lead to him producing the lead single from Private Dancer ‘Let’s Stay Together’. It also features 12” mixes and b-sides as well as three non-album singles, including the duet with Bryan Adams ‘It’s Only Love’.
“From the camera of Bob Gruen comes this amazing, intimate look at the legendary Ike and Tina Turner at their creative and popular peak. From the hot lights of their unequaled stage show to tender moments crooning the blues with only the camera as their audience, this is a look inside a hardworking band as well as an iconic couple”. 90MN.
A special post today with this ‘homemade’ montage created for the mantra “Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu”, recited by Tina Turner.
This is one of the most powerful mantra issued from the new album “Children Beyond”. Extracts from the “Children Beyond” documentary directed by Xaver Walser have been used to create the clip.

I was born into a baptist family. I went to church every sunday. The preacher were speaking the words of God. I didn’t hear what the preacher said but it was the environnment. It was the peoples Amen in agreeing what the preacher said and then we had a young baptist reunion to learn about the bible. It helps, I don’t remember it helped me to be a better person but it put me in touch with information about God and Jesus, the truth and being nice to people. That was a part of my life when I was 11 or 12. I continued with the Lords prayer because my mother tought us that that will help us. And I kept the Lords Prayer straight through life until I was introduced to Buddhism. But it didn’t matter that I changed from Baptist to Buddhist because I learned later that it is the same. I used different words…. maybe I needed different words.
Our Music BEYOND carries the message that we are all from one source. Therefore I live Baptism and Buddhism.
We have some new information and new photos and videos from the upcoming Children Beyond album.
The follow-up to the 2009 spiritual album Beyond will be released on October 7, 2011 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and will be called Children Beyond and will again feature Tina Turner, Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Regula Curti with different songs, prayers and spiritual messages from different world religions. This time, the album will also feature a group of children.A cd presentation and press conference will be held on September 28. Also, Tina gave an interview to the Shambala Sun magazine, which can be viewed on Johanna’s site.
Below, you will find several promotional videos and screenshots for the album. Also, a documentary on the project has been made which will hopefully be broadcast later in the year.
