A Nicer Shade of Red is a compilation album by the Rollins Band. It was recorded at the same sessions that produced Nice, making it a companion piece to that album, and was released directly by Rollins' 2.13.61 label. The album features four songs that only appeared on vinyl or foreign CD releases of Nice as well as an extended mix of "Your Number Is One" and a cover of The Dead Boys' "Ain't It Fun".
