Turner’s rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” is the first track in the new box set, which also includes her collaborations with Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams and English musicians David Bowie, Eric Clapton, and Rod Stewart. A Terry Britten rework of “Something Beautiful Remains” is also featured in the set.
A foreword from Adams, who was a great friend of Turner’s, is included in each version. “From obscurity to the stages of the UK and Europe, I credit Tina for changing the course of my life and I’m so grateful to have had some of her precious time,” Adams wrote. “She was a force of nature; no one had her energy or her voice; I suppose it’s fitting to say, it’s only love, and that’s all.”
In a 2018-2019 issue of Everything Zoomer, Adams spoke of his decades-long friendship and collaboration with the “What’s Love Got to Do with It” singer.
“I became aware of her voice from hearing ‘River Deep, Mountain High.’ There were a few female voices I loved growing up,” he said. “I loved Tina’s voice because … she seemed completely unbridled.”
As previously reported by BLACK ENTERPRISE, the rock ’n’ roll legend passed away in May 2023 at age 83. The announcement on Facebook showed compassion toward Turner’s family and highlighted the songwriter’s “boundless passion for life.”
“She enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow,” read the post, adding that her music was her greatest work.
