I Can’t Stand The Rain is the last single from the Private Dancer album in Europe, instead of Show Some Respect in the rest of the world. The song was originally written and released from Ann Peebles in 1973. The live music video was taken from the Private Dancer Tour home video. Tina promoted the song at several tv shows in Europe. The live versions on the b-side have been recorded in Chicago on August 2, 1984.

Tina Turner’s new British single, on Capitol U.K., is her reinterpretation of Ann Peebles “I Can’t Stand The Rain,” which is re-edited to get to the beat faster, with new instrumental and soloing passages, too. If it should be released here, it would be the song’s second go-’round on the dance chart (after Eruption’s 1978 remake), its third on the pop chart, and its fourth on the black chart, having been redone late in the ’70s by Graham Central Station.
