Biography

Anna Mae Bullock was born in Tennessee, but moved to St. Louis as a teenager. There she met rock and roll performer Ike Turner and persuaded him to let her join his backing vocalists. Eventually Anna impressed Ike so much that he gave her equal-billing, and the new name "Tina". They became the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, and married in 1962. Through the 60s they forged a reputation as ... Read more in Amazon's Tina Turner Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Few have endured such turmoil as Tina Turner. In 1976, after 20 years toil with husband Ike, she was left with nothing but bruises, 36 cents and a Mobil gas card. Oh, and four children. Yet by 1985, with her big highlighted hair and little leather skirt recognised worldwide, she was a 10-million-seller, and a Hollywood star to boot. Collaborating with Heaven 17, Turner had achieved forward momentum. Now, signed to Capitol, she assembled about her a host of famous writer/producers, including Rupert Hine, Terry Brittan and Mike Chapman. The result was Private Dancer, a smart, mainstream and melody-heavy fusion of rock, pop and R&B making the most of Turner's world-weary persona and roughhouse soul inflections and featured huge singles like "What's Love Got to Do with It?" and the title track (written by Dire Straits's Mark Knopfler, guitar courtesy of Jeff Beck). Maybe rock's greatest comeback. --Dominic Wills

5.0 out of 5 stars EXTENDED CLASSIC 11 Jun 2003
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Tina Turner’s classic album from 1984 has been substantially enhanced with the addition of seven tracks, including wonderful extended versions of What’s Love Gotta Do With It, Better Be Good To Me and I Can’t Stand The Rain. This makes Private Dancer even more of an essential album as it remains Turner’s masterpiece from the eighties, an album of brilliant material exquisitely interpreted. It’s a concept album loosely based on a stripper’s life, a bit like Donna Summer’s Bad Girls from 1979 and it amply showcases Tina Turner’s multifaceted talents. The bitter What’s Love Got To Do With It and the melancholy title track, both passionate ballads, were massive hits. Better Be Good To Me and Steel Claw are scorching rockers while she really adds a new dimension to her covers of Help and Let’s Stay Together, another top 10 hit. I love Tina’s interpretation of the Anne Peebles song I Can’t Stand The Rain which was also a hit for Eruption way back in 1978. Private Dancer is a triumph of epic proportions, not only Turner’s comeback album but a timeless masterpiece of exceptional songs infused with enough raunch to please her hardcore fans from the early days and enough pop appeal for the mainstream. Never before had her voice been wrapped around such quality but accessible and melodic material as on Private Dancer, making for a consistently enjoyable album with broad appeal. This reissue with the extra tracks is superb value for money – get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Private Dancer 21 Sep 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is surely one of Tina's best albums to-date. All 80's classics, but still sounding as good today as back then. What a true star she is! A must for all TT fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breakthrough Turner 26 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is Tina Turner's 5th solo album and her breakthrough after her traumatic divorce from her husband Ike. With a multitude of very serious musicians such as Mark Knopfler, Jeff Beck and Alan Clark surrounding her this can be nothing but magnificent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tina Turner at her best...... 12 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a mixture of songs written by admirers, and others that were already well known. It's the Queen of raunchiness herself and her unmistakable delivery that make this album what it is.
I'm not a massive Tina Turner fan..... probobly because for me her later releases didn't push her to the dizzy heights of this masterpiece.

1.0 out of 5 stars louder and tinny 22 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
unfortunatly this is over bright and too loud and lacking in body it's compressed to the hilt and is not an improvement on the original so i can not recomend it.The music however is just as good as it ever was.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply the best! 12 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
After dipping in quality Tina returns with her greatest album to date, its a late night pop rock record with real depth, its 80's magic that has stood the test of time. All tracks are good but stand out track on album is Better be good to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars She Might Have Been Queen 9 May 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
What hasn't already been said about this landmark album? That is marked the comeback of a major 60's talent? That it won numerous Grammys and awards? That it spawned several career reviving (and defining) hits for the Artist?

All those things have been said, so what can I tell you that's new?

I love it because it yells '1984' in its production and packaging, but it also sashays 'class' through the sheer force, delivery and subtletly of Tina Turners' peformances. It's both raucous ('Steel Claw' exceptionally so) and sophisticated ('Private Dancer'). The only track I'm not so keen on is the cover of 'Help'.

The cover of Bowies' '1984' is also really weird given that several of his songs would suit T.T much better (I'd love to hear her cover 'Rock n' Roll With Me' or 'Who Can I Be Now?')but I guess it was included cos the album came out in 1984.

Anyhoo its a great piece of work, slightly dated, but full of great vocals.
