Nazareth CD’s are real hit & miss efforts, so a greatest hits with all of these tunes is a great deal. Sure a few gems are always missed in these packages, but it is a good place to start a collection or replace some of those well worn albums.In the mid seventies it was interesting to watch Nazareth & Aerosmith battle it out for the bluesy hard rock crown. Both had early proto-metal ballads Naz “Love Hurts” and Aerosmith’s “Dream On” boogie rockers Naz “This Flight Tonight” and Aerosmith’s “Same Old Song & Dance” which evolved into rocking radio hits “Hair of the Dog” vs “Walk This Way” and ending with metal rockers “Expect No Mercy” vs “Back In The Saddle”Both bands then put out a decade of … and both resurfaced with comeback CD’s. Nazareth’s “No Jive” & “Move Me” (with new life injected by the return of the younger guitarist Billy Rankin) are great CD’s but did not have the financial label backing that Aerosmith’s “Permanent Vacation” & “Pump” recieved. No half million dollar videos and professional song writers for Naz doomed them to a cult following, while Aerosmith is ruling the hard rock (or is it pop rock)airwaves.In retrospective I would take this Nazareth collection to the desert island rather then Aerosmiths best of! Enjoy.
