Framed as a retrospective that opens with a romp through Nutbush as Turner evokes her Tennessee hometown’s city limits in song, this engaging autobiography earns topdrawer status less for the familiar tale it tells („I, Tina“ laid more than bare her story) than for how it tells it: with candid reminiscences and vintage performance footage from 1960-91. From the neighbor who remembers the superstar as “the babysitter for the Henderson family,” to Cher, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Roger Davies, and Ike Turner, friends and colleagues offer personal takes on Turner’s life and music, and Turner herself frames the proceedings with charming candor. How Turner re-built her career („I learned how to work without a record,” she says) and the turns that brought her back to the top are intriguing-and inspiring-viewing. And how she can sing!
