634-5789 is a soul song, written by Eddie Floyd & Steve Cropper and was originally recorded by Wilson Pickett in 1966. Tina covered it in 1986 for her Break Every Rule tv special, together with guitarist and singer Robert Cray. It was the last single from the album Live In Europe.
The live music video, directed by David Mallet and produced by Jacqui Byford, was taken from the Break Every Rule home video, available on VHS and LaserDisc, but is still waiting for a release on DVD. It shows Tina on stage of the imaginary club Le Zero together with Robert Cray.
Released in February 1989 only in The Netherlands from Capitol / EMI Records on 7“ vinyl and 5“ CD, 634-5789 reached #15. In other countries, the single was only available as an import.

Turner-Cray Duet To Get Dutch Debut
AMSTERDAM — Benelux is building a reputation as a test territory for Tina Turner’s duet recordings. Late last year her „Tonight“ single with David Bowie was released first in Holland, stayed three weeks at No. 1, and was then rush-released in other European territories. Now Holland is the first country to get „634-5789," Turner’s new duet with Robert Cray. The Capitol release is distributed here by EMI Bovema. WILLEM HOOS
