Nazareth’s albums all had a “lighter” tone to them that always bothered me, so that is why this CD is so great. It captures them in their live concert fury, with loud guitars and lots of noise. Some of the songs are throwaways, but for the most part, this is what Nazareth should have sounded like in the studio. If you are an old fan-pick this up. It will give you a completely different look into this band and how they could really ROCK.
i also have been looking for this cd and it is very hard to find. ihave tried to find it in a lot of music stores and half of them have never heard of it.i have been a fan of theres all my life.
Having had the opportunity to check out this remarkable band during several stages of it’s unending metamorphosis, I am well aware of what a Nazareth show sounds like. I am equally aware of what a Nazareth show feels like. This outstanding collection has somehow managed to capture both ! The sound quality is in a word … impeccable ! The interaction between band and crowd is as it should be. The reason for my rating being four stars out of five is.. This live disc is so utterly fantastic, that it should have been a double or triple disc release. I’ve left one star open for “Snaz 2″.
Have always liked this 1981 live Nazareth album.Also glad to see that one record label had the sense to squeeze this 77 minute show onto one disc,instead of two CD’s,as it has been released before.All sixteen tracks kick ass as far as I’m concerned.Like,”Razamanaz”,Joni Mitchell’s “This Flight Tonight”,”Beggar’s Day”,J.J.Cale’s “Cocaine”,their FM radio staple “Holiday”,”Hair Of The Dog”,”Show No Mercy”,the Yardbird’s “Shapes Of Things”,the unforgetable “Love Hurts”,ZZ Top’s “Tush” and “Morning Dew”.A must-have for all fans of ’70’s hard rock.Line-up:Dan McCafferty-vocals,Manny Charlton-guitar,Pete Agnew-bass,Billy Rankin-2nd guitar,John Locke-keyboards and last but not least Darrell Sweet(R.I.P.)-drums.Long live Nazareth!
