The live versions on the b-side were recorded in Chicago on August 2, 1984.

Released February 1985 in England and March 1985 in Germany on the Capitol / EMI label on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, I Can’t Stand The Rain reached #9 in Germany and #57 in England. The single was not released in America.

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.
