|Bonnie Tyler chronology|
The World Starts Tonight is the debut album by the Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler released in 1977.
With a mixture of country and pop infused in the production, this album led to a future teaming with Jim Steinman after her time with Scott and Wolfe ended.
Special tracks on the album are cover versions of Piece of My Heart and Love of a Rolling Stone, the only tracks not co-written by the producers.
The album was released on CD in 2009, with two previously non-LP bonus tracks added ("My! My! Honeycomb!" and "Baby I Remember You".) In addition, the CD release included original album artwork, lyrics to all the songs, detailed liner notes by Paul Thompson Hunter and many rare European picture sleeves in the deluxe booklet.
