Tina Turner made her musical debut in 1960 as part of the Ike and Tina Turner Review, before that she sang under the sobriquet “Little Ann.” But there was nothing little about that talent, that voice, and that hair. On the original album cover she had a straightened short cut similar to Ike’s , but in this 1960 live performance, her hair is shoulder length, full, glossy and gorgeous. Check it out here.
Phil Spector himself said he considered River Deep, Mountain High to be one of his greatest compositions, and Tina’s vocals are so powerful on this track. In this original 1966 promo clip, her hair is dark and long, and she swings it like the rock star she was born to be. Watch it here.
