Good Hearted Woman contains previously unreleased tracks from the Tina Turns The Country On recording session, released for the first time in 1979 on this album. The cover picture was taken from the Acid Queen photo session. After Tina’s comeback, it was reissued in 1985 under the title „Tina Turner Goes Country“ and the same tracks were also issued on several different titled low budget albums like „Sings Country“ or „Country In My Soul“ on vinyl, cassette and compact disc - some of them with two additional medleys. In the meantime, all songs are available also digitally and in remixed versions.

Playback Records, a North Miami Beach direct marketing label, begins this week cable promotion of its album Tina Turner Goes Country. The collection of country songs has not been previously released, according to Jack Gale, president of Music Unlimited Inc., of which Playback is a subsidiary. Priced at $9.95, the Turner album will not be sold in stores, according to Gale. Initial promotion will be on the Nashville Network and the Satellite Program Network. The history of this album is not elucidated in the liner notes, but whenever and however it was recorded, it links Turner with classics like „Lovin’ Him Was Easier,“ „Good Hearted Woman“ and „Stand By Your Man“. Her cornered, yowling style renders complete justice to them all.
