Good Hearted Woman (1979)

Tina Turner - Good Hearted Woman - Album

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 2017, the album was reissued again under the simple title „More“ from Cuv Music on a limited edition vinyl album. In the meantime, all songs are available also digitally and in remixed versions.

CashBox Review

November 24, 1979

Most people don't think of Tina Turner as a country artist, which is understandable because she isn‘t. However, on this album she records a collection of country songs in her own unique style and the result is an album many country programmers and listeners will enjoy. Best cuts include „If This ls Our Last Time,“ „We Had lt All,“ „Soul Deep“ and „Freedom To Stay.“

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.
