Tina Turner needs to go back to her roots
on 22 March 2011
Released in Europe in 1999 and North America in 2000, this must be the weakest release of Tina Turner since her comeback record "Private Dancer" (Capitol - 1984).
It is also up to 2011 the last studio album from Turner.
EMI and Roger Davies tried to make a commercially succesful album by having Turner team up with Metro (The people behind Cher's "Believe") and Spice Girls (!!)producer absolute. What were they thinking???
Turner should be working with the likes of Tony Joe white (Remember "Undercover Agent for the blues"?) instead of the producers here.
Small highlight on the album is Terry Britten's title track and the Bee Gees song "I'll be there".
Let's hope she puts things straight and that we get at least one more studio album. This should not be the "final" album of one of the greatest female recording/performing artists of all time!
Her latest studio recording "I'm ready" released in 2008 on the compilation "TINA!" sounds much more suitable for her.
