Tina Turner’s Anniversary Dancing
By Classic Pop | May 7, 2015
Tina Turner reissues her 1985 album Private Dancer on June 29 to mark its 30th anniversary.
The album features its original 10 tracks, plus a second disc including 15 rarities, while the package’s sleevenotes are written by Heaven 17’s Martyn Ware, who produced the album’s single Let’s Stay Together – the biggest-selling 12” of all-time in the US.
BEF, Ware’s side-project with Heaven 17 bandmate Ian Craig Marsh, had previously worked with Turner on the song Ball Of Confusion, which is included on the second disc. Other extras include four 12” remixes, a live duet with David Bowie on Tonight recorded in Birmingham, a live version of Let’s Pretend We’re Married, Mad Max theme We Don’t Need Another Hero and Bryan Adams duet It’s Only Love.
Other hits on the album include Private Dancer, What’s Love Got To Do With It and Better Be Good To Me.
Turner’s last studio album was 1999’s Twenty Four Seven, but she continues to tour.
