Tina Turner - TINA! - Album

TINA! was released in 2008 just in time for Tina Turner's long awaited „50th Anniversary Tour,“ which started on October 1 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City (USA). The tracklist includes some of Tina’s greatest hits and most of the songs she performed live at the tour. As a special bonus, the album features two live songs recorded at the Amsterdam Arena in 1996, which were never before released on CD as well as two new, exclusive and previously unreleased tracks titled It Would Be A Crime and „I’m Ready“. In 2009, the album was expanded to a three-disc Platinum Collection in Europe to coincide with the European leg of the tour.

The American promo disc of the album includes instead of the studio version of The Best a live version from London’s Wembley Arena in 2000 and the regular U.S. album came in a cardboard sleeve with some different pictures as the European jewel case version. The digital release of the album features alternative versions of two songs. The original 1966 version of River Deep, Mountain High is replaced with the 1973 re-recording and the Acid Queen original soundtrack version with the album version.
