Do I need to prepare the backup if I am compressing and using tar

pythondev1pythondev1 EntrantCurrent User Role Contributor
I've recently changed my backup to tar and stream to a different server.

xtrabackup --backup --stream=tar .... backup.tar.gz

I haven't needed to extract the tar yet.However I have seen i need to use `tar -ixvf backup.tar.gz`. After the backup has been extracted do I need to prepare it as well?
