Info for Private Dancer (30th Anniversary Edition)

Warner Celebrates 30 Years of Tina Turner’s “Private Dancer”. Tina Turner’s landmark “comeback” album, „Private Dancer“ is a must-have for music-lovers. The four-time Grammy-winning album yielded seven singles and catapulted Tina Turner straight back to the top.

When Private Dancer was issued in May 1984, it was Turner’s first album since 1979’s Love Explosion. Recorded in England with four different production teams, it marked a departure from the rhythm and blues that characterized her time with the Ike and Tina Turner Revue. Private Dancer introduced a Tina Turner for the eighties – lithe, sexy, and ready to rock. Emphasizing slickly shimmering pop and rock, Turner’s singular, energetic delivery brought the grit. The album’s material was diverse, including covers from The Beatles (“Help!”), Al Green (“Let’s Stay Together”), and Ann Peebles (“I Can’t Stand the Rain”). (“Help!” was eliminated from the original 9-track U.S. LP pressing; the full 10-track album is, of course, presented for this reissue.)

Private Dancer, the album, was a U.S. No. 3 album and a U.K. No. 2, eventually going 5x platinum and 3x platinum in those countries, respectively. The 30th Anniversary Edition includes the original album remastered on the first disc, along with a 15-song second disc of 12-inch mixes, B-sides and three non-album singles, plus duets with Bryan Adams (“It’s Only Love”) and David Bowie (“Tonight”). The reissue also features the track “Ball of Confusion (That’s What the World is Today)” (with the British Electric Foundation) recorded with Martin Ware of Heaven 17, and Turner’s theme to Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. The seven bonus tracks from the 2000 reissue are all included, along with eight additional tracks, adding up to a generous bonus disc. Diehard fans will notice that the set doesn’t include all of the album’s related singles. Numerous 7-inch and 12-inch mixes are notably absent, including the familiar single edit of “Private Dancer” itself, as well as the instrumental and extended versions of the Mad Max theme and more.

In 1982, Turner recorded a cover of The Temptations' "Ball of Confusion" for the UK production team B.E.F. which became a hit in European dance clubs. In November 1983, Tina released her cover of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" with Capitol. The record reached the top 40 and top 10 in UK and at #26 on the US pop chart and top 5 of the US R&B and dance charts in February 1984. In June 1984, turner released her album, Private Dancer which peaked at the Top 5 of the Billboard album charts and sold five million copies in the U.S. and a total of eleven million copies worldwide. In 1996, Turner released her comeback album, Wildest Dreams which went gold in the US and platinum success in Europe. In early 2000, Turner’s Twenty Four Seven Tour concert tour grossed over $100 million. In 2004, Tina made her first professional appearances following her semi-retirement, released the compilation album, All the Best, which produced the single "Open Arms", and sold more than a million copies in the US. In October 2008, Turner embarked on her first tour in nearly ten years with the Tina!: 50th Anniversary Tour.
