1988 – Best Of 15 Tracks 1984-1987 – Promo CD - Japan

This ultra rare Japanese Promo CD was handed out to Japanese Radiostations and DJ’s to promote Tina’s "Break Every World Tour" in Japan 1988.
Tina wasn’t a stranger in Japan. Tina had performed there since the early 70’s with The Ike & Tina Turner Revue. The Revue was the hottest ticket in town, and opened doors for many more American Artists. Tina also performed in Japan at the start of her solo career between 1977-1984. She already was a star there, but became a bigger star after the release of the comeback album "Private Dancer". Tina performed during her "Private Dancer Tour" in Japan as well. Here’s a video of Tina performing "What’s Love Got To Do With It" on a Japanese TV Show in 1985.

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
