Tina Turner - Simply The Best
on 29 February 2008
Simply The Best Of Tina Turner... and it is just that. Because although it contains many of the best hits, it omits many loved and essential songs, but it picks the best, intertwines it with the new and is almost full as it contain 18 tracks. So we get some of the very early, to the very latest new songs for the compilation.
The cover has an iconic image of Tina, the booklet has a few nice photos and the back page features a four album Discography. The songs themselves are great, although the 90's Version of `Nutbush City Limits' is questionable, definitely not a patch on the original or the 1993 Soundtrack Version which is on a par with the original. It brings together a few songs previously not available on any Tina albums such as `It Takes Two' A Duet With Rod Stewart, We Don't Need Another Hero' from the Mad Max Soundtrack and the Classic `River Deep, Mountain High' which has never appeared on any Tina Solo record. In addition as I previously mentioned we get three new tracks for the album, which are really great songs, that compliment the older material. However some people feel disappointed that 'One Of The Living' from the Mad Max Soundtrack does not appear here. A Nice Package, good for casual listeners and a must for fans.
