Overview

It's easy to forget the rags-to-riches route traveled by Tina Turner, the humble country gal (born Anna Mae Bullock) who became a globally acclaimed entertainment icon. Compared with her 1991 anthology, Simply the Best, this two-disc set does a better job of capturing the full scope of Turner's fascinating career by including slightly more obscure but worthy fare alongside better-known hits. Highlights include picks from her early days with former husband Ike Turner such as the swaggering, autobiographical rocker "Nutbush City Limits" and the orchestral, Phil Spector–produced pièce de résistance "River Deep Mountain High," as well as her unlikely duets with David Bowie on a reggae-tinged reading of Iggy Pop's "Tonight" and Italian superstar Eros Ramazzatti on the ethereal "Cose Della Vita," with its swirling synths and Santana-flavored guitar nuances. The Tennessee native fought to escape an abusive marriage and clawed her way to autonomous success, so it's not surprising that many of Turner's biggest hits -- from her independent-woman anthem "What's Love Got to Do with It" to the thumping faux funk of "Better Be Good to Me" and the twangy shimmy of "What You Get Is What You See" -- deal with the subject of tough love. Never one to shortchange her fans, Turner fleshes out this collection with a trio of new songs: the uplifting "Open Arms" with its swelling harmonies and synth washes; the dramatic, string-swept "Complicated Disaster"; and the equally lush ballad "Something Special." With plenty here to please both casual and hard-core fans, this 33-song retrospective definitely offers all of Turner's best.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
While not the most thorough survey of Tina Turner's career, All the Best covers most of the bases. From the early years to "River Deep Mountain High" to re-recordings of some of her work with husband Ike to her magnificent and triumphant return to the charts, it's all here in one form or another. There are a few new songs on here that are easily forgettable, and at two discs get a bit bogged down in filler (her cover of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" is a totally unnecessary inclusion) this could have been a powerhouse single disc. These small misgivings aside, all of the major hits are here, including those previously only available on soundtracks or singles, making it a perfect starting point for those looking to get just the hits for their collection.

I purchased “All The Best” by Tina Turner back in January 2010 because of being impressed and curious about the music behind her story. I thought it was inspiring that she overcame so much to experience a career rebirth and courageously start over in a new place simultaneously. “Private Dancer”, “We Don’t Need Another Hero”, and ‘Proud Mary” are some of the multiple hits available in this collection. However, “Great Spirits” was one of the songs that greatly resonated with me. “All The Best” by Tina Turner is good for those who like pop rock greatest hits collections and/or soft rock.
