''Simply the Best'' is the name of Tina Turner's 1991 compilation album of her most popular hits since her comeback in the early-mid 1980s. It also included three new songs; "Love Thing" (UK Airplay #13), "I Want You Near Me" (#22 UK), and "Way of the World" (UK Airplay #6 and UK #13) as well as a re-recorded dance version of Turner's classic "Nutbush City Limits", all of which were also issued as singles in 1991 and 1992. The album is Turner's biggest seller in the UK where it is one of the best selling albums of all time for sales in excess of 2.4 million copies. It was certified 8x platinum in the UK and stayed on the UK charts for over 140 weeks. The album sold 7 million copies worldwide.
The compilation was released with a different track listing in the U.S. with the songs "Addicted to Love (Live)" and "Be Tender With Me Baby" being replaced by "What You Get Is What You See" and "Look Me in the Heart". In Australia, some limited edition releases included a five track bonus disc with some rare recordings such as "(Simply) The Best", the re-recording featuring Jimmy Barnes, and "I'm a Lady", the B-side to "Love Thing". - Wikipedia
