I love Tina Turner, she's an incredble singer who has everything, style, voice, rhythm and incredible legs. "Simply the best" is called one of the best years greatest hits albums. It was realesed in 1991 and includes some of Tina's greatest hits (I say some because actually there are a couple missing), it also includes 4 new songs (by 1991), one of them is a duo with Rod Steward. This album debuted at #1 in the British charts and remainded in the Top 50 for 3 straight years, the album was certified Platinum in the US and Multi-Platinum all over Europe, selling almost 10 million copies. The songs are: 1-THE BEST. The song made to #1, was nominated for a Grammy and it's considerated a classic. 2-BETTER BE GOOD TO ME. Reached #5 in 1985 and won a Grammy award. 3-I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN. Reached #4 in Europe. 4-WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT. A #1 hit that was the best song of 1984 and won 3 Grammy awards. 5-I DON'T WANNA LOSE...
I do not understand why the reviewer below claimed Tina Turner is a Whitney Houston wannabe when Tina Turner's career started before Whitney was even born. And most of the hits on this compilation were released before Whitney Houston even hit it big. The review was ignorance in its purest form and it is the most pointless and ill-advised review I've ever seen. Its not good to make blanket statements about things you don't knmow. :)
I am a huge fan of both Tina and Whitney and it is clear to anyone who knowsanything about them that they are totally different and do not try to copy each other in any way shape or form. They are two different types of superstars. Tina Turner has sold almost 70 million albums since the 80s, she has also sold more concert tickets than any other female artist in rock history (yes even more than Madonna - and that only includes the concert sales since the 80s.). Tina Turner also made history in 1988 by having the largest paying concert attendance...
What Aretha Franklin is to R&B, and what Billie Holiday is to jazz, Tina Turner is to rock and roll...simply THE distinctive female voice of the genre. And this generous 18-track compilation offers up the very best of her platinum-selling, Grammy-laden solo career. Over half of Turner's landmark solo debut "Private Dancer" is represented here: first there's the #1 worldwide smash "What's Love Got to Do With It," and the hit's midtempo marriage of rock and soul is just as thrilling as it was upon release. The lush title track will always be a smooth winner, and who can forget "Better Be Good to Me," one of the hardest hitting female rockers in memory? To hear Tina wail "did you think I'd just accept you in blind faith? Don't shout, baby!" is to guarantee yourself chills. Two spectacular covers from the album are included as well: Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" and Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand the Rain." It might...
