TINA: Single

Nutbush City Limits (1988)

Tina Turner - Nutbush City Limits (LIve) - Single

Nutbush City Limits is a live version of Tina’s self-written autobiographical song from 1973 and the first single from the album Live In Europe in Germany, instead of Addicted To Love in England. The over ten minutes version of the b-side song „Legs“ was previously unreleased, recorded live in Europe in 1985. Tina used the ZZ Top cover song as an encore at her Private Dancer Tour and once again at her What’s Love? Tour in 1993. The single was not released in America.
