Reseña de álbum

After slowly but surely building a fanbase around the world with albums like Razamanaz and Loud 'N' Proud, Nazareth finally hit the big time in 1975 with Hair of the Dog. The title track sets the mood for this stark album of hard rock with its combination of relentless guitar riffs, a throbbing, cowbell-driven beat, and an angry vocal from Dan McCafferty that denounces a "heart-breaker, soul-shaker." The end result is a memorably ferocious rocker that has become a staple of hard rock radio stations. The remainder of the album divides its time between similarly pulverizing hard rock fare and some intriguing experiments with the group's sound. In the rocker category, notable tracks include "Miss Misery," a bad romance lament driven by a doomy riff worthy of Black Sabbath, and "Changin' Times," a throbbing hard rock tune driven by a hypnotic, circular-sounding guitar riff. In the experimental category, the big highlight is "Please Don't Judas Me," an epic tune about paranoia that trades heavy metal riffs for a spooky, synthesizer-dominated atmosphere that is further enhanced by some light, Pink Floyd-styled slide guitar work. The American edition of this album also included a surprise hit for the group with their power ballad reinterpretation of the Everly Brothers classic "Love Hurts." However, the album's surprise highlight is a song that bridges the gap between the straight hard rock and experimental songs, "Beggars Day/Rose in Heather"; it starts out as a stomping rocker but smoothly transforms itself midway through into a gentle and spacey instrumental where soaring synthesizer lines support some moody guitar work. All in all, Hair of the Dog is the finest album in the Nazareth catalog. It is a necessity for both the group's fans and anyone who loves 1970s hard rock. ~ Donald A. Guarisco, Rovi

Nazareth tour-de-force

Not only one of Nazareth's greatest, but also one of the best albums from the 70's, period. Driving, and NASTY, there are few groups that can compete with the buzz-saw sound of the rockers on this gem; Hair of the Dog (leadoff track) is in the top 10 of all-time less an authority than Alice Cooper said this was "the perfect song, I wish I wrote it..." Miss Misery is bluesy, and VERY mean and in all their songs, Dan McCafferty sings with emotion, a nastier Rod Stewart...from the gut. Love Hurts- everyone knows this me, the first real power ballad, and yet to be equaled. Changin' Times chugs hard, like a good old-fashioned Status Quo tune, with power chords all the way thru. Beggar's Day- an unknown favorite here, the guitars drip with malevolence. Rose in the Heather, a beautiful song with sweeping strings that stuns you in the middle of the audio onslaught. Whiskey-drinkin' woman; a funky/heavy boogie with a good sense of humor..Please Don't Judas Me is an epic, slow-building tune, with the requisite underlying heaviness, that brings to mind the Scottish highlands. (Where the boys are from..) It's hard to top this album, but other great Nazareth albums are Razamanaz and Close Enough for Rock'n'roll (especially Telegram- check it out...)

Classic Metal greatness from start to finish

This album, especially "Beggars Day," bears uncanny resemblance to AC/DC... But this album was originally released in 1975, so it goes back just as far as the first AC/DC album, so they probably weren't copyin'... Even if they were, Hair of the Dog is still one of the greatest albums of the '70s (and of all time) and it doesn't get a fraction of the credit it deserves. "Hair of the Dog," "Miss Misery" "Beggars Day," and "Whiskey Drinkin' Woman" all grab you by the balls and don't let go, and "Love Hurts" is also a classic power ballad. An easy five stars

Alltime top 10

Not only is this record a 5 star every song is a 5 star, This record is in my alltime top ten, A must have, Enjoy!!

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...
