5.0 out of 5 stars The Acid Queen...Tina Feb. 20 2006
By Shane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album (Tina's second solo, after Tina Turns The Country On) is stunning.

The album was, for the most part, made because of Tina's appearance in The Who's "Tommy", and the great recording in that film of Acid Queen by Tina. The version heard here is not the one from the film, but a recording made just by Tina (as opposed to under the direction of The Who). So in true "cash in album" tradition this should be crap...but its not.

Under My Thumb and Lets Spend The Night Together, both Rolling Stones songs penned by rocker songsmiths Jaggar/Richards are made completely new by Tina, in her own style. As are I Can See For Miles, a song originally by The Who released previously to their Tommy work.

Whole Lotta Love, a Led Zeppelin track (the original of which, goes without saying, is a classic) is turned into a sensual...almost "porn groove", but never-the-less, rocks in Tina's hands.

Some Ike Turner compositions appear here also: Baby Get It On, the last Ike & Tina hit, Bootsy Whitelaw, Rockin' & Rollin' Pick Me Tonight are as good as any of the duos work. Also features Tina's stellar performance of Otis Reddings brilliant I've Been Loving You Too Long.

Over all, this album did cash in...big time, proving Tina to be rocker, as well as a soul/funk belter, and paved the way to her later albums (Rough and Love Explosion, which should also be reissued for us die hard Tina fans) and the monster solo pieces Private Dancer and Break Every Rule.

A Must have for Tina fans, and classic rock fans alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen of Rock N Roll Rocks! May 28 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was Tina's second solo album (her first was "Tina Turns the Country On"), which needs to be reissued, and she delivers such an amazing performance! The best song on the album has definitely got to be "Whole Lotta Love". Tina makes the song sound so fantastic and sensual. This is a wonderful album! Now if only EMI would reissue "Tina Turns the Country On", "Rough" and "Love Explosion"!:)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen Of Rock Doing What She Does Best Feb. 20 2013
By Brandon Booker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is definitely in my top 5 favorite Tina Turner albums of all time. If you love Hard-Rockin-Soulful music that will make your fingers pop and gettin your body movin' then you'll kove this album to death. This album was ahead of it's time. This album came out in the 70's which was very unique time. The 70's saw the emergence of black women in Rock with Tina Turner debuting as a solo artist in 1974 with Tina Turns The Country On. Two years earlier in 1972, Joyce Kennedy and her band Mother's Finest came out with their self titled Funk Rock debut and Joan Armatrading was in the UK getting ready for her debut as well. Right behind Mother's Finest and Joan Armatrading was Betty Davis "steppin in her i. miller shoes" with her self titled debut and right before the end of the decade Nona Hendryx (formally of LaBelle) would release her Hard Rock debut album in 1977. These women were ahead of their time but unfortunately they came up in a time where Rock music from black women (men as well) was not accepted by record labels and mainstream audiences (Not that today is any better) On a positive note, these women would end up paving the way and influencing many black female rockers in the future. If anyone ever says that black women can't Rock, then tell them to listen to Tina Turner's "Acid Queen" and prove them wrong.
5.0 out of 5 stars She is the Queen Dec 22 2013

If you are a Tina Turner fan, this is a must have album. She covers the Rolling Stone's "Under my Thumb" and her version is darker and complex. She also covers a song by the Who. One of the highlights of the album, besides "Acid Queen" from Tommy, is Mr. Bootsey Whitelaw. An amazing story of a black woman who cannot get away from her white lover. Fantastic vocals and excellent arrangements. A hidden gem.
