iTunes Editors’ Notes

Though Nazareth are often overlooked in comparison to many other hard rock bands of the ‘70s, they’ve been consistently keeping the faith for over forty years. Hair of the Dog is the stone classic, but 2011’s Big Dogz features just as much hard- rock menace. “Big Dog’s Gonna Howl” kicks off with singer Dan McCafferty proving he hasn’t lost a step and the band’s inner funk can still be called up at will. “No Mean Monster” is a satisfying six-minute epic, while “Time and Tide” brings forth a worthy ballad for road-tested rockers. “Radio” turns up the velocity while putting forth the album’s catchiest tune. The dry production gives the band a tough natural edge. They’re in a curious spot, locked in between hard rock and heavy metal, where Cafferty’s vocals tip things towards metal with the raspy “Lifeboat” and the barroom blues of “Watch Your Back.” The rhythms keep them moving between genres. “The Toast” shuffles. “Sleepwalker” boogies. They play like the veterans they are.

Customer Reviews

How do they do it?

Heard a review of this album on the Rock and Roll Geek Podcast, and was shocked at how great it sounded. Nazareth has always been overlooked as a typical AOR hard rock band, but look deeper. Solid songs with great hooks....this album could be right out of 1976. Dan McCafferty sends chills up and down my spine with his lyrics and vocals on the song "Butterfly". Axl Rose can only hope and pray to age as well as this grizzled veteran. This album will go unnoticed by most, which is a shame, but thank you Nazareth for keeping on. "Time and Tide" is a great way to spend 99 cents.

possible i tunes error on song titles

On my copy it has the incorrect song titles for the songs maybe it just may computer i was making playlist and now the titles don't match the songs it still a great album hopefully this can be corrected maybe it just my computer but i thought i tunes wasn't supposed to have these kinds of errors


Unfortunately for me, I'm a fallen away fan. Clearchannel has ruined radio here in the bay area.
Didn't know Naz was still around. Radio just plays Hair of the Dog.
Anyways.... These guys still rock and roll their way. I drove 20mi to the nearest record store to buy this record (as the down load is all F-d up)(really miss the old way of hearing n buying music). Picked up Razmanaz as well (never heard any of the songs) and was immediately rewarded.
Have these guys ever made a so-so album?
BUY THIS ALBUM. You'll not be sorry!

The Scottish hard rock quartet Nazareth had a handful of hard rock hits in the late '70s, including the proto-power ballad "Love Hurts." Formed in 1968, the band featured vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton, bassist Pete Agnew, and drummer Darrell Sweet. The band had relocated to London by 1970, and they released their self-titled debut album in 1971. Both Nazareth and 1972's Exercises received favorable attention by British hard rockers, but it was 1973's Razamanaz that moved them...
