The name Tina Turner conjures up many images. Whirlwind dancer, early empress of R&B, relationship survivor, comeback rock queen. Until retiring 10 years ago, she was a giant for 5 decades.Beginning in 1959 with The Ike & Tina Turner Revue, they had great success for a long time before fading out and divorcing. Her 1984 solo album "Private Dancer" still stands as the best comeback record ever. So unexpected, and a real pleasure to hear. It made her a worldwide star all over again. She followed up a year later with 2 songs on the soundtrack to "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome", which yielded two further hits. In 1986 she released another album, "Break Every Rule". It sold well, but not on the level of "Private Dancer". That's where "Tina Live In Europe" (1988) comes into the picture, and captures her American peak.Tina had done 2 massive tours in support of these two studio albums, for a combined total of hundreds of concerts in the U.S. and around the world. They took the best performances from the Private Dancer Tour, but used even more from the Break Every Rule Tour for this compilation. The record is notable for featuring some guest duets with an array of big names: Bowie, Clapton, Bryan Adams, and Robert Cray. Showy numbers like the bombastic "Better Be Good To Me" and "We Don't Need Another Hero" exist alongside the understated, soulful "A Change Is Gonna Come" and her remarkable slow version of the Beatles' "Help!". A perfect combination of flash with substance. While there's some synthy high-gloss 80's sheen and thudding drums, there's also great sax and guitar throughout.
