Image of Nazareth


You couldn’t invent the story of Nazareth if you tried. At their peak, the Dunfermline rock group were huge, selling vast quantities of albums and pulling in enormous crowds to their shows. By rights, when the group’s profile receded a little and they morphed into the highly respected club-level regulars that they are today, their reputation should have become tarnished – but ...

Editorial Reviews

This Scottish band rocked hard on this 1975 LP, but it was Love Hurts -the original power ballad-that finally brought them stateside fame. The song hit #8, the album reached #17; you'll also find heavy hitters like Hair of the Dog; Miss Misery , and Changin' Times .

5.0 out of 5 stars A Landmark Recording For the Hard Rock Genre December 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
If there were a museum that showcased the most essential albums in hard rock, Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog" would surely be behind a glass display case. It streamlined all of the important aspects that characterized the genre; gritty, riff-driven rock and a great level of accessibility. The album is full of talking-guitar techniques, powerhouse structures, and most importantly, a flexibility that is rarely found in most heavy metal albums: ballads that meant something and rockers that meant even more. Nazareth was one of the few bands that could pull off an equal balance of driving rock and power ballads that didn't sound overdone and empty. For instance, it's hard to find a band that could execute the anthemic title track, then craft a ballad such as the rendition of 'Love Hurts.' (It's a shame however that the power-ballad category would be turned into nothing more than a musical joke in the next decade, due to acts like Poison, Whitesnake, or Warrant.) Some more interesting moments are found in 'Rose in the Heather,' the doom of 'Miss Misery,' and the paranoid closer 'Please Don't Judas Me,' one of the songs that shows that not all songs associated with the word 'experiment' are wastes of time. All told, "Hair of the Dog" is an essential piece of rock music, the blueprint for many acts to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably Nazareth's Best, But.... May 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Opt for the import version with the 6 bonus tracks instead of this release. A much better "bang for the buck" and the bonus tracks are pretty decent (compared to Judas Priest, Blue Oyster Cult, & Motorhead releases where the bonus tracks are virtually unlistenable). But man, can ya get much better on a intro than the title track, "Hair Of The Dog"? "The Dog" is a "bona fide" classic, right up there with Montrose's "Rock The Nation" for top hard rock intro of the 70's.
This album is a must have for any fan of 70's hard rock. So if you ain't got it yet, add to cart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Naz Done Right March 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These new Slavo remasters of the Nazareth catalogue are superb: they feature fantastic sound, excellent liner notes, killer bonus tracks, and historical accuracy. So far, Salvo has remastered and rereleased everything from the first Naz album through "Hair of the Dog," and these are all well worth picking up. As for "Hair of the Dog" itself, the Salvo version preserves the track listing of the initial UK release, which has a great cover of Randy Newman's "Guilty" in place of the now mega-famous cover of B. Bryant's "Love Hurts," which the record company added to the US release at the last minute in the interest of trying to land a smash hit . . . which they did, of course. For my money, the originally intended cover of "Guilty" (included here in its proper spot as the third track) makes the album much more interesting and dark, but for those who side with the record company, don't worry: "Love Hurts" is included as a bonus track, along with lots of other fine material. No serious and self-respecting fan of hard rock should spend any amount of time on planet Earth without owning "Hair of the Dog," and this is the edition to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars View from a 70's teen February 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'd like to know the ages of some of my fellow reviewers. I was a teenager in the mid-70's, so I LIVED THIS! Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog" was such a powerful presence, this album was an absolute must in our 8-track players and at our parties, alongside albums by such hard rock staples as Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin. So, who's calling "Love Hurts" a "power ballad"? It never occurred to me to attach a label to this song. I'd rather not attach labels, thank you. Plain and simple, it's a great song. The album's title song, however, was hands-down the favorite of my crowd. The band at my boyfriend's prom (he was a year behind me) played it -- despite lyrics that were rather shocking by 1977 standards! -- and we all screamed out the words to the chorus along with the band (undoubtedly to the dismay of the chaperones). This was a very important album in the 70's. I'm overjoyed to find it's available on CD now. My vinyl copy is a bit worn out, and I just can't get the 8-track to play at all!

4.0 out of 5 stars More than just the two hits July 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Nazareth's Hair of the Dog is one of the best hard rock albums of the mid-1970's. Although the band is best known for their two hits, the power ballad "Love Hurts" and the title track, which contains one of the most recognizable guitar riffs in rock, Hair of The Dog is a stellar hard rock album from beginning to end. The tracks "Miss Misery" and "Beggars Day" boast both killer riffs and mean vocals from Dan McCafferty, whose voice is very similar to AC/DC's Brian Johnson. "Changin' Times" reminds you a little of Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" before the long jam at the end while "Whiskey Drinkin' Woman" is a cool blues tune with a guitar sound similar to Lynyrd Skynyrd. The instrumental "Rose in the Heather" is very cool as the synthesizers and guitars blend very well. The epic "Please Don't Judas Me" is also pretty good although it if a couple of minutes were shaved off at the end, it would have been better. All told, Hair of the Dog is a very strong album and proves that Nazareth was more than just a two-hit wonder. Highly recommended to fans of great hard rock.
