Nice 'N' Rough includes a concert from London's Hammersmith Apollo in 1982. After Roger Davies attended one of Tina's concerts at the San Francisco Fairmont Hotel in February 1980, 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. Unfortunately, some songs like Help and Get Back from the original setlist are missing on this release. Nice ’N' Rough was directed by David Mallet and released in 1982 from EMI on VHS and LaserDisc.
