The first re-release of the first official compilation album by legendary American Pop Rock/Soul singer.
The album includes Turner's most popular hits since her comeback in the early-mid 1980s. It also includes three new, previously unreleased, songs: "Love Thing" (UK Airplay No. 13), "I Want You Near Me" (No. 22 UK), and "Way of the World" (UK Airplay No. 6 and UK No. 13), as well as a re-recorded dance version of Turner's classic "Nutbush City Limits", all of which were also issued as Singles in 1991 and 1992.
Everything else here is either top-notch or campy, certifiable fun. A duet with Rod Stewart on "It Takes Two" supplies the fun. The two other new tracks tacked to the end beat out most of the album cuts the collection passes on, plus you get the bombastic "We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)" without having to buy a dull soundtrack. The oldest cut by years is the monolithic "River Deep-Mountain High," which is a bona fide classic.
The album is Turner's biggest seller in the UK, where it sold 2.1 million copies. It was certified 8× Platinum in the UK and stayed on the UK charts for over 140 weeks. The album sold over 7 million copies worldwide.
Parlophone Records Ltd., A Warner Music Group Company, 1991/2019 (0190295378134 | ESTV 1). Made in Germany.
