A Period Of Musical Change In Direction For Nazareth

In the 70s Nazareth were riding high on a wave of success. With the 80s began a big change for Nazareth. Management problems were plaguing them along with all kinds of new music that dominated the market. Album sales began to slump. Their popularity started to wane. Nazareth was trying to find a new direction. Malice In Wonderland and The Fool Circle saw the band use a new producer in Jeff Baxter. (The Doobie Brothers) Baxter took Nazareth down a different path. Guitarist Manny Charlton was not happy with this decision but the rest of the band liked the idea. The sound has been referred to as west coast but the music that Baxter produce doesn’t sound west coast at all.
