Rough is Tina Turner's third solo studio album, released in September 1978 on the EMI label in the UK, Ariola Records in West Germany and United Artists in the United States. Rough was Turner's first solo album after her 1976 split with husband Ike Turner. Her first two solo albums, Tina Turns the Country On! (1974) and Acid Queen (1975), were recorded while she was still married to Ike Turner and also a member of the Ike and Tina Turner Revue

The Acid Queen" is a song written by Pete Townshend and is the ninth song on the Who's rock opera album Tommy. Townshend also sings the lead vocals. The song tells the attempts of Tommy's parents to try to cure him. They leave him with an eccentric transvestite, a self-proclaimed "Acid Queen", who feeds Tommy various hallucinogenic drugs and performs sexuality in an attempt to free him from isolation.

But, of course, Turner is anything but predictable, and Acid Queen is thus an immensely enjoyable affair from start to finish. Her version of Led Zep's "Whole Lotta Love" takes the dynamics of the original and turns them upside down to deliver an affair that is on par with some of Isaac Hayes' finest moments.

Complete your Tina Turner collection. Tina Turner's 2nd solo release and her last while still under the artistic control of then husband Ike Turner. Side 1 is composed of renditions of UK rock classics from The Rolling Stones, The Who and Led Zeppelin while side 2 is Ike Turner material. Side 2 opening track "Baby, get it on" has also been released as by "Ike & Tina Turner".

Acid Queen is Tina Turner's second solo studio album, released in 1975 on the EMI label in the UK, and on United Artists in the US. Although it is a Tina Turner solo album, the very first single, "Baby Get It On", was a duet with Ike Turner, Tina Turner's musical partner and husband at the time. As it turned out, it was her last solo album to be released before she left Ike Turner and the Ike & Tina Turner Revue.

Produced by Ike Turner. If your child ain't all he should be now This girl will put him right I'll show him what he could be now Just give me one night. I'm the gypsy, the acid queen Pay me before I start I'm the gypsy and I'm guaranteed To mend his aching heart. Give us a room, close the door Leave us for a while You won't be a boy no more Young, but not a child.
