Nutbush City Limits was originally a hit single from Ike & Tina Turner, taken from the 1973 album Nutbush City Limits. This mix is an updated version of Tina’s self written song about her hometown and the first single from the Simply The Best greatest hits collection in Europe.
The music video, which was directed by Michael Bay & Chris Cowey and produced by A. Crofts & M. Bodnarczuk, showed for the first time Tina with her new look with short hairs. In-between, we can see pictures of her hometown Nutbush and some old footage from the Ike & Tina period. The clip is available on the Simply The Best video collection.
Released in September 1991 in Europe from Capitol / EMI Records on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, cassette and 5“ CD, Nutbush City Limits reached #23 in England, #25 in Germany and #31 in Europe. The single was not released in America.

Prelude to the most spectacular Greatest Hits album of the season. In October, the TINA TURNER double album (single CD) SIMPLY THE BEST will be released, which includes all hits from TINA TURNER since her sensational comeback with "Private Dancer" in 1984 — together with the associated home video. From "Let's Stay Together," the Grammy winning "What's Love Got To Do With It" and "We Don’t Need Another Hero" to the hits of her multi-platinum seller "Foreign Affair," this is the evidence that TINA truly deserves the title "First Lady Of Rock".
In addition to three new songs, two remixed TINA TURNER classics have been included: "River Deep, Mountain High" and "Nutbush City Limits“. The latter, self-written from TINA TURNER in 1973, is now available as the first single.
