Tina Turner - Be Tender With Me Baby - Single

Be Tender With Me Baby is a slow ballad, taken from the album Foreign Affair as the last European single, but it was not released in America. Tina performed the song as the encore at her Foreign Affair Tour and once again in 2008 / '09 at her 50th Anniversary Tour. Beside the live version on this single, an additional version is available on the Do You Want Some Action! home video from 199o. As a special bonus, a cut to shape picture disc was released in addition to the regular single.
