BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

REQUEST

“What You Get Is What You See” is a hit song by Grammy Award winning rock and soul singer Tina Turner, it was released as a single from Tina’s Break Every Rule album. The song was written by the Terry Britten and Graham Lyle team and was notably different to the three previous singles that they had written for Turner, “What’s Love Got to Do with It”, “We Don’t Need Another Hero” and “Two People”, as it was an up-tempo Country-tinged rock track featuring Eric Clapton on guitars. The 12″ single included three versions of the song, the Extended Dance Mix, the Extended Rock Mix and a live version recorded in London in November 1986. A different live recording of the song was later used as the opening track on Turner’s 1988 album Tina Live in Europe.

“What You Get Is What You See” was popular in Australia, where it was used in a campaign for the New South Wales Rugby League. They later used the Tina Turner song “The Best” in another campaign.

    Here is a weird story about Afterglow: I bought a copy of Afterglow 12″ on eBay..still package wrapped, never played. Opened it up when I got it so I could record it and immediately noticed there were only two tracks, not five tracks as stated on the labels. When I played the record it was actually “A Kind of Magic” by Queen. LOL. I loved that Queen song too but i still have it….wonder if it’s worth any money?

    Great! Great! Great! I love this Tina tsunami. Still don’t understand that EMI didn’t release a deluxe remaster of this album yet. Maybe Soulmusic has to do the job, like they did with the Arethe double disc reissue this April, with every possible remix/instrumental/single version. Soulmusic is also known for a gentle compression compared to the BBR reissues.
