Prelude to the most spectacular Greatest Hits album of the season. In October, the Tina Turner double album (single CD) „Simply The Best“ will be released, which includes all hits from Tina Turner since her sensational comeback with „Private Dancer“ in 1984 - together with the associated home video. From „Let's Stay Together,“ the Grammy winning „What's Love Got To Do With It“ and „We Don’t Need Another Hero“ to the hits of her multi-platinum seller „Foreign Affair,“ this is the evidence that Tina truly deserves the title „First Lady Of Rock“. In addition to three new songs, two remixed Tina Turner classics have been included: „River Deep, Mountain High“ and Nutbush City Limits. The latter, self-written from Tina Turner in 1973, is now available as the first single.
