Tina Turner's gazillion-selling last album of the '80s was, among other interesting things, a sort of affirmative action program for singer-songwriter-guitarist Tony Joe White.
White had been little heard from at the time, but here he not only contributed four songs, including the characteristically swampy "Steamy Windows" (where he bounced sinuous lead guitar off Mark Knopfler's charged rhythm work) but also co-produced them. Turner herself is in sensational form throughout the album, particularly on the return to her roots that is "Undercover Agent for the Blues", and the knowingly anthemic and self-referential "The Best". The song's title is an apt review of the entire album.
