Κατά ένα ενδιαφέροντα – με τη πιο νοσηρή έννοια – τρόπο, κάθε βιογραφική αναφορά στην Tina Turner [R.I.P.], κάνει μια ιδιαίτερη στάση στη σκληρή κακοποίηση που υφίστατο από τον πρώην σύζυγο και συνεργάτη της. Για την ακρίβεια, αυτή είναι συνήθως η μόνη αναφορά στην πιο δημιουργική περίοδο της καριέρας της : 16 ολόκληρα χρόνια [1960-1976] στη διάρκεια των οποίων ηχογράφησαν ουκ ολίγα σπουδαία τραγούδια …και άλλα, λιγότερο σπουδαία αλλά σούπερ διασκεδαστικά. Κάποια από αυτά θα ακούσουμε για μερικές μέρες.

Interestingly – in the most morbid sense of the word – every biographical reference to
Tina Turner [R.I.P.] makes a special stand on the severe abuse she suffered from her ex-husband and partner. In fact, this is usually the only reference to the most creative period of her career : a whole 16 year period [1960-1976] during which they recorded quite a few great songs, and some less great but super fun ones.
Some of these we ‘ll hear from today on for some days.

    What a star. She was a singing/vocal machine. She hung in with all of the instruments, then took it further.
    Thank you for your ongoing tribute to Tina! I look forward to your selections!

      Thank you Resa! In her first period she was the female equivalent to James Brown!

    I hadn’t heard this one before. Sounds like soul music to me!

    She was an icon and tragic about the abuse she endured. But her music will live on. Thanks for the tribute.
