Product Description

Product Description

As a Part of the EMI Cententary Celebrations, a Number of Classics CDs Are to Be Re-Issued with Extra Bonus Tracks and Enhanced Packaging. For this First Release in this Series Seven Tracks have Been Added (4 B-Sides and Extended Remixes).


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

When PRIVATE DANCER was released in 1984 no one was prepared for how huge it was to become. LET’S STAY TOGETHER did okay as a single, but when the sultry WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT hit radio and the video premiered on MTV and MuchMusic, the album and Tina’s comeback took off like a rocket. I saw her when I was a teenager at the CNE Grandstand in August 1985 and she absolutely killed it! And no distracting backup dancers or flashy theatrics like Madonna and her ilk always had. The songs on DANCER appealed equally to teens and their parents and people respected Tina as a survivor. I remember this was one of those albums where everyone knew all the songs whether they were a fan or not—it was that good. The singles were chosen wisely after the impact of WHAT’S LOVE. I loved and still love BETTER BE GOOD TO ME; the raw vocal demanding yet pleading and of course that irresistible cowbell; then the classy jazzy title track and bopping SHOW SOME RESPECT. What a winning streak! Even the non-singles like the tinkling I CAN’T STAND THE RAIN, fierce rocking STEEL CLAW and biographical opener I MIGHT HAVE BEEN QUEEN are in no way filler.

Fans of the original album definitely need to get this 30th Anniversary upgrade. My two complaints are that:
1. They should have kept the original album cover with Tina nearly doing the splits on the platform in the black bodysuit. It was sexy yet classy. I never cared for the tarted-up image with the black cat—it’s not very flattering. Thankfully, the original image is on the booklet, which also has pics of the 12” singles but there are no lyrics inside.
2. They changed the sequencing. The original song order was perfect and fans are used to it.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on June 14 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 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!

This album, along with Prince's Purple Rain, and Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A., was the biggest selling album of 1984. It sold over 10 million copies worldwide. It went straight to number 1 in Europe and and peaked at #3 in America.
The first track is a purley autobiographical song called I Might Have Been Queen. Its a great opening track. Next is What's Love Got To Do With It. This was the biggest hit of the album going to #1 in America for 3 weeks and going gold. It also won her 3 grammys. Show Some Respect is a rock number that peaked at #37 in America. Most people probably recognize I Cant Stand the Rain from Missy Elliots remixed version. Private Dancer was on Tina's best recordings. It was also a huge hit hitting #7 in America. Let's Stay Together, the cover of the Al Green classic, is considered Tina's comeback song. It was her first solo hit, reaching #1 in Europe and #26 in America. Better Be Good To Me is Tina at her rock n roll best. This song also won Tina a Grammy for best Female Rock Vocal. Steel Claw simply rocks and proves why Tina is the Queen. Help is a gossiple flavored version of the Beatles #1 hit. The last song is a David Bowie composition called 1984. The year the album was made, the song is kinda spooky.
Private Dancer is not only Tina's biggest album, and her comeback album, but it is also a great piece of music from one of the best artist of our time. Its a classic pure rock n roll record and I recomend it to everybody.
