In 1984, Tina Turner mounted one of the greatest comebacks in music history. Coming after many years without a hit, PRIVATE DANCER proved to be a monster seller for Turner, spawning three smash singles. At 45 years old, Turner was a superstar-again.
PRIVATE DANCER is the strongest album of Turner's career. The infectious "What's Love Got to Do With it" became an MTV staple. The title track, written by Mark Knopfler, features Jeff Beck on guitar. Beck truly shines on the rockin' "Steel Claw," where he delivers a blistering solo. Turner lends her distinctive, throaty vocals to Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" and David Bowie's "1984." Bonus tracks abound on this deluxe reissue. The rocker "I Wrote a Letter" finds Turner proclaiming that her lover can "make a white girl sing the blues." "Rock N Roll Widow" is a tender tale of a wife left lonely while her musician husband is on the road. "Don't Rush the Good Things" is an up-tempo number that stresses the importance of enjoying life. "When I Was Young" is a non-repentant look back on Turner's wild years. PRIVATE DANCER is a fantastic effort by one of the premier female rockers.
