Tina Turner - Tina - The Collected Recordings: Sixties To Nineties: Wikipedia Album Entry

The Collected Recordings - Sixties to Nineties is a 16 bit digitally remastered 3 CD box set of recordings by American rock singer Tina Turner. The 48 track compilation was released in the United States on 15 November 1994 by Capitol Records.

The box set collects recordings from Turner's - at the time - thirty year long career, starting with her 1960 debut single with Ike & Tina Turner, "A Fool In Love", and concluding with 1993's "I Don't Wanna Fight" from the soundtrack to the biographical movie What's Love Got to Do with It.

Disc one focuses on Turner's career with the Ike & Tina Turner Revue featuring a selection of their hit singles and best-known cover versions such as "It's Gonna Work Out Fine", "I Idolize You", "River Deep - Mountain High", "Bold Soul Sister", "Nutbush City Limits", Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long", Sly & the Family Stone's "I Want to Take You Higher", The Beatles' "Come Together", Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary" and The Rolling Stones "Honky Tonk Women".

Disc two opens with Turner's first solo hit single "Acid Queen" from the film version of The Who's rockopera Tommy followed by one of the last recordings she made with her former husband, her cover version of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" taken from the Acid Queen album in 1975. The disc continues with two of the songs Turner recorded with the B.E.F. (British Electric Foundation) in the early eighties that became the starting point of her comeback, "Ball of Confusion" and "A Change Is Gonna Come" - both tracks however remixes dating from 1991, live tracks like Prince's "Let's Pretend We're Married", Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" and ZZ Top's "Legs", her subsequent hit duets with Bryan Adams, Eric Clapton and Rod Stewart, single B-sides such as "When I Was Young" and "Don't Turn Around" coupled with a few rarities like "Johnny And Mary" from the 1982 soundtrack Summer Lovers and the 1983 demo recording "Games".

Disc three comprises fifteen of Turner's greatest hits following her comeback with the 1984 Private Dancer album, among them "Let's Stay Together", "What's Love Got To Do With It", "Typical Male", "What You Get Is What You See" "The Best" and "Steamy Windows".

Notable omissions from the Collected Recordings track list are amongst others tracks from Turner's two first proper solo albums Rough (1978) and Love Explosion (1979), both recorded for the Capitol Records/EMI label.
