Product Description

TINA TURNER Private Dancer (1997 UK 100 series 17-track picture CD album with seven bonus tracks including three extended mixes fold-out picture sleeve with rare Tina photographs and lyrics and 28-page EMI booklet & within card picture slip-case CDCNTAV1)

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

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 11 Jun. 2003
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!

While this late 30th anniversary release (the original album was released in 1984) is a significant improvement on the 1997 reissue, it is not a totally comprehensive round-up, with at least 10 further tracks that could have formed part of this set, missing. All Warner did for this, is literally move the 7 bonus tracks from the 1997 reissue on an extra disc, and add 8 tracks. 7" edits of "Private dancer", "Let's stay together", "Better be good to me", and "Help", the extended version of "We don't need another hero", as well its 7" and 12" instrumentals, the instrumental of "Ball of confusion", plus some more live B-Sides, are not included. Surely some demos are gathering dust in the vaults, but noone bothered to do some research in order to present some special material. The bonus tracks from the 1997 reissue could easily have been put on CD 1, and thus more room would be available on CD 2 for the missing tracks. Also, the omission of a DVD is inexcusable, no videos or tour material, giving no incentive to fans, let alone to purists, to buy what could have been a complete and truly great 30th anniversary deluxe edition. What a serious letdown! Despite its many flaws, though, this newly remastered set does just about enough to justify the upgrade. The songs themselves is reason enough for anyone to purchase this, the digipack is nicely assembled, the extensive booklet is interesting, and the extra tracks are all very nice additions. It should be noted that the new remastered vinyl LP comes with no bonus tracks. Looking at the seductive cover photo, I am hoping for a future ultimate edition CD+DVD package, worthy of a queen like Tina Turner. Meow!Read more ›

This is a fantastic re-issue of an album I originally bought back in 1985. I never heard of Tina Turner until I heard her version of Al Green's 'Let's Stay Together' which blew me away. Since then I have loved Tina Turner and been a huge fan, seeing her many times in concert, the last time back in 2009. She was/is an amazing performer and 'Private Dancer' was the album that bought her back from the brink of obscurity. This has stayed in my Top Ten albums since the 80's and 30 years later it still sounds fresh and not dated at all. In this new edition we are given an extra bonus cd with tracks including 'Ball of Confusion' which started the ball (forgive the pun) rolling and brought her back to prominence. This second cd also includes duets with David Bowie (Live) and Bryan Adams. There are also the two tracks from Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome and a few 12" tracks including 'I Can't Stand the Rain' which I haven't heard for years although I still have the vinyl! Many artists today profess to Tina Turner being a huge influence and listening to this album and watching her live performances, you can see why she has endured and been successful for so many years. A brilliant new release to celebrate this fine artist.

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.

Tina Turner is my 3rd favourite artist and this absolutely sensational 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Private Dancer breathes new life into the already fabulous album the bonus tracks on disc 2 are just incredible and my favourite Tina Turner song 'We Don't Need Another Hero' sounds better than ever what a wonderful 25th Birthday present this is and it joins my already expanding CD collection I have got Private Dancer on Vinyl and it certainly sounds better on CD and this new release of Private Dancer is so much better than the last CD release of the album, I highly recommend this to any Tina Turner fan and it most definitely is a must have item.
