Nice 'N' Rough features a concert from London's Hammersmith Apollo from 1982. After Roger Davies attended one of Tina's concerts at the San Francisco Fairmont Hotel, he agreed to work as her manager. Tina told him, that she would like to do a rock’n roll show like the Rolling Stones, so Davies advised her to drop her band, her style and most of the songs she did before and remodeled her show into a rock showcase. The new show started in March 1981 and continued the following years with slightly different setlists all over the world with the Nice 'N' Rough concerts. Unfortunately, songs like „Take A Little Pain,“ „Out Of Time,“ „I Want To Take You Higher,“ Help and Get Back from the original setlist are missing in this release, but a longer version was broadcasted on television.
