Nutbush City Limits was originally a hit single from Ike & Tina Turner, taken from the Nutbush City Limits album in 1973. „The 90’s Version“ is an updated version of Tina’s self written song about her hometown and the first release from the Simply The Best album in Europe. In the music video, which is available on the Simply The Best video collection, Tina showed for the first time her new look with short hairs. The single was not released in America.

BACKGROUND: Prelude to the most spectacular Greatest Hits album of the season. In October, the TINA TURNER double album (single CD) SIMPLY THE BEST will be released, which includes all hits from TINA TURNER since her sensational comeback with "Private Dancer" in 1984 — together with the associated home video. From "Let's Stay Together," the Grammy winning "What's Love Got To Do With It" and "We Don’t Need Another Hero" to the hits of her multi-platinum seller "Foreign Affair," this is the evidence that TINA truly deserves the title "First Lady Of Rock".
In addition to three new songs, two remixed TINA TURNER classics have been included: "River Deep, Mountain High" and "Nutbush City Limits“. The latter, self-written from TINA TURNER in 1973, is now available as the first single.
