Biography

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

Their classic breakthrough album from 1973 now remastered with 6 bonus tracks & comes in a sturdy wallet-style digipack with a 16 page booklet.It's more than three and a half decades since the release of the album regarded by many Nazareth fans as their finest hour. By their third LP, the Scottish quartet knew exactly what was required to reach the next level of success, having produced a well-regarded debut album (Nazareth, 1971) and a commercially disappointing follow-up (Exercises, '72).The results of the Glover/Naz collaboration speak for themselves. Many of the songs on Razamanaz are blues-rock classics. One obvious example is the title track, fuelled by a stop-start riff and McCafferty's fully-developed shriek. Bad Bad Boy, Night Woman and Broken Down Angel are also among the finest songs Nazareth ever committed to vinyl. Agnew remembers: "We did Broken Down Angel in Island Studios because Roger wanted that particular sound. He said, 'This is going to be your first hit single'. We all thought that as well. The rest of the album was recorded in a mobile studio up in Scotland." Not only was Broken Down Angel a hit along with the second 45, Bad Bad Boy, the album itself peaked at No. 11 in the UK album charts and refused to budge, with fans flocking to the subsequent live shows. The band themselves had invested a lot of faith in the LP. As Agnew now recalls, "When we put Razamanaz out, we thought 'This is going to be a hit. If it's not, then I don't know what people expect' - but of course it was an instant hit, and it got great reviews. It had two great big singles and that was really the beginning for us: it got the ball rolling."

5.0 out of 5 stars MOTTAMANAZ May 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The title of this album says it all really, just say the word "Razamanaz" and you know it's time to party. With the release of this album, Nazareth had one of the most unusual albums to roar up the charts in 1973, not unusual in musical content, as it is a straight ahead, smack between the eyes Rock `n' Roll album, but in the company it kept at the upper reaches of the charts, considering this was the time of either Glam-rock (Sweet, Slade, T-rex etc) or highly avant - garde progressive rock (Yes, E.L.P., Jethro Tull) so to see a bunch of geezers from the heart of Glasgow, Scotland up against them caused many a backward glance, but shoot up the charts it did, attaining a high of No. 11 in the British charts. No mean feat for a band that had previously only released 2 albums, both recorded and promoted on small budgets, being honest, neither of them were truly representative of their wild stage act, mostly filled with ballads, where as this little baby is choc-a-block full of rockers. The Razamanaz album was a turning point in changing the fortunes of these Scottish rascals for the better. The basis of any good rock band is a solid rhythm section, these positions were filled by one of the nicest guys in Rock `n' Roll the aptly named Darrel Sweet on Drums, with the flamboyant and must have in your stage line up, Pete Agnew on Bass. If that was the engine room, then the decorations were laid on thick by Manny Charlton, Lead Guitar. (Who's catch phrase must have been "If you've got it flaunt it" as sprayed all over the songs, is wah-wah, fuzz box, feed back, and loads of slide guitar). Out front was graval voiced vocalist Dan McCafferty, who must of gargled with broken bottles every day to keep the chords in such rough shod order. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A cornerstone in rock April 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is undoubtly the best album by Nazareth, and probably one of the greatest records ever produced ('though I liked the production of "Woke up this Morning" better on Excercises).
The songs, well, they are all great. The overall feeling of the record is very southern. If I didn't know these guys were from Scotland, I would have guessed Texas. "Vigilante Man" starts as an almost embarrassing-to-listen-to country-like song with lots of slide guitarr, but as the song moves along the sound gets rougher and rougher until it rocks really hard. The slide guitarr intro of "Woke up this Morning" is a logical progression to that.
Sold my soul is not only a great song, but also tells with much wit and humor exactly how it is to pray. "I prayed to God and Jesus, but I guess they didn't hear... I looked to the lord in heaven, but he must have went away." Take it for what it is, very intelligent humour, which most songs and records by this group is so full of. It may look like an ordinary "Wine women and Whiskey" attitude (like that of Guns'n'Roses), but it is done with a humour that I haven't seen with many other bands.
As some of the other reviewers have already pointed out, AC/DC and Guns'n'Roses got everything they know from these guys. Enough said!

4.0 out of 5 stars HARD ROCK! June 4, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Nazareth is one of those good old hard and heavy rock'n'blues bands that were forgotten after the new wave hype. Even heavy rock fans tend to overlook Nazareth, and that's bad, because in their best moments, those scots could rock as well as, say, Aerosmith in the '70s, and their vocals were the biggest influence for Axl Rose's style. RAZAMANAZ captures the band struggling for their first sucess, and it was very well-received by the rock audience back in 1973. It is a no-nonsense slab of hard rock, well produced by Roger Glover, the Deep Purple bassplayer.
The title track, and "Alcatraz" are all terrific old-school hard rock (people at the time would call it heavy metal, but by today's standards is too rock 'n' roll for that); "I sold my soul" is a darker, Sabbath-influenced slow tempo number. "Bad Boy" has a Southern Rock feel, with good slide-guitar and the singer giving a lesson in rough voice that Axl paid close attention; "Woke up these morning" is very catchy, with the bass propelling the boogie and more hot and dirty slide and vocals.
Oh yes, "Vigilante Man" is allright! It begins fragile, with a country blues feel, but then it evolves into the fat sound with agressive vocals that is so good to hear when you are in the mood for some rock 'n' roll music.
This album has some other good moments, like the more commercial "Night Woman" and "Broken Down Angel" (their first radio hit). Summing up, it delivers good rock and for those who miss the band, RAZAMANAZ and HAIR OF THE DOG are essential listening. For people interested in the heavy rock scene of the early seventies and only know Zep, Aerosmith and KISS, Nazareth can be a pleasant surprise. Recommended!

Format:Audio CD
Like most people I was introduced to Scotland's finest rock band by way of their kick-ass single "Bad Bad Boy" when it first hit the airwaves in July 1973. I quickly nipped out to Pat Egan's Sound Cellar in Dublin and nabbed the album too - the fabarooney "Razamanaz" - and I've loved them both ever since.

This is the 2nd title in Salvo's UK reissue of Nazareth's back catalogue - "Nazareth and Exercises" (their first and second albums on 1CD) was their first and it's reviewed separately.

Released in September 2009, SALVOCD031 breaks down as follows (59:22 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "Razamanaz" released in May 1973 in the UK on Mooncrest Records CREST 1 and on A&M Records SP-4396 in the USA. ROGER GLOVER of DEEP PURPLE produced the album to great effect.

Tracks 10 and 11 are "Hard Living" and "Spinning Top", the 2 non-album B-sides to "Bad Bad Boy", the UK 7" single issued on Mooncrest MOON 9 in July 1973

Tracks 12 to 15 are "Razamanaz", "Night Woman", "Broken Down Angel" and "Vigilante Man" - recorded live-in-the-studio in March 1973 for The Bob Harris Radio Show on the BBC

Each of these UK issues comes in a tri-gatefold card sleeve with the 'Loud, Proud & Remastered' logo on the front cover. When folded out, you get a repro of the gatefold artwork of the original UK LP and live shots from the period (the disc in the right flap, the booklet in the left). The 16-page colour booklet is superb, liner notes by band expert JOEL McIVER, pictures of rare UK 7" singles, Euro picture sleeves, US white-label promos, black and white snaps of the band in studio and on stage - all very nicely done.

But the really big news for the fans (as it is on the 1st Salvo CD) is the fantastic new SOUND.
