The Early Years features a complete concert from the Rockefeller music venue in Houston, Texas (USA). The concert took place on April 25, 1983 and was broadcasted on the radio. Tina performed many new songs like the Foreigner cover „Night Live,“ the David Bowie song „Cat People“ and „Hollywood Nights“ from Bob Seger. There is also a very rare version of the track „Take A Little Pain,“ written by Tina’s longtime friend Eddy Armani. Eddy ran the Ike & Tina Turner fanclub and was her personal wardrobe assistant before her comeback. He also wrote the book „The Real T: My 22 Years with Tina Turner“ in 1998. The album features also an absolutely wonderful version of the song „Rock’n Roll Widow,“ which Tina performed in her concerts since 1982. She promoted it also at the Johnny Carson „Tonight Show“and recorded a studio version, used for the b-side of the single Help in Europe and What’s Love Got To Do With It in America.
