The soundtrack shows the many facets of Turner's career, from her hard-edged R & B years with former husband Ike ("Rock Me Baby", "A Fool in Love", and "Proud Mary") to her struggling disco/Las Vegas era ("Disco Inferno") to her triumphant "rediscovery" and rebirth in the mid-80's (the mega-selling title cut and "I Don't Wanna Fight"). The Bryan Adams penned "Why Must We Wait Until Tonight?" should've been released as a single. It is Tina at her sultriest and grittiest, the mix that makes her the definitive performer that she is. The album's only shortcoming is the omission of Turner's "Let's Stay Together", the song that really brought her back into the public eye after years of musical obscurity. That reduces the rating by one star.
TINA'S RASPY, RAW, UNIQUE VOICE SHINES BRIGHTER THAN EVER ON THIS SOUNDTRACK ALBUM FROM THE MOVIE OF HER LIFE. TO HEAR FRESH INTERPRETATIONS OF THESE SONGS DATING BACK TO 1960 IS STUNNING,ALL THE TRACKS ON THIS ALBUM WERE RE-RECORDED FOR THE FILM WITH THE EXCEPTIONS OF "WHATS LOVE" AND "I MIGHT HAVE BEEN QUEEN". THE NEW VERSONS OF "PROUD MARY", "A FOOL IN LOVE", "IT GONNA WORK OUT FINE" AND OTHERS REMINDS US THAT TINA JUST KEEP GETTIN BETTER WITH AGE, HER VOCALS ARE SENSATIONAL ON ALL THE TRACKS. ALSO OF NOTE IS THE THEME SONG "I DONT WANNA FIGHT" WHICH WENT TO #9 ON THE US CHARTS, AND SPAWNED TO GRAMMY NOMINATIONS. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ALBUM.
Tina Turner rerecorded songs from her past to make her movie and they are all here on this CD soundtrack. The only one missing is "River Deep Mountain High." Her new version of "Proud Mary" rocks even more than her original with Ike Turner. The one on the album is with Laurence Fishburn who played Ike in the film. She rerecords some of our past favorites and really captures the energy of the film that it came from. This is a definite must-have for even the slightest of Tina Turner fans.
