Good Hearted Woman contains previously unreleased tracks from the Tina Turns The Country On recording session, released for the first time in 1979 on this album from Wagner Records on vinyl. The cover picture was taken from the Acid Queen photo session. After Tina’s comeback, it was reissued in 1985 on Playback Records under the title „Tina Turner Goes Country“. The same tracks were later also issued on several different titled albums like „Sings Country“ and „Country In My Soul“ on vinyl, cassette and compact disc, some of them with two additional medleys. In the meantime, all songs are available also digital and in remixed versions.
