In May of 1984 Tina Turner released her 5th studio album.
After being dropped from United five years earlier due to the poor reception of her album Love Explosion, A&R rep John Carter of Capitol Records spearheaded Tina’s comeback.
Setting her R&B pedigree aside, the album tracks gracefully maneuver between uptempo pop, full on ballads, and smatterings of jazz and soul.
Seven singles, 5x platinum sales stateside, four Grammy Awards including Record of The Year, Best Female Pop Performance & Best Female Rock Performance, and the career resurrection of one of the finest performers to ever grace a stage.
