NAZARETH is without doubt the biggest rock band to emerge from Scotland.
They were the pioneers, eventually acquiring legendary status, who took Scottish Rock international and paved the way for many other great Scottish bands that came later – the likes of Big Country, Simple Minds, etc.
In 1971 they recorded their first album, Nazareth, which was the beginning of what was to become a long and illustrious recording career.
It was when the band toured America with Deep Purple in the 1972 that they met Roger Glover who went on to produce their breakthrough album, Razamanaz, in 1973 that included the hits “Broken Down Angel” and “Bad, Bad Boy.” The next album, Loud ‘n’ Proud, was released later the same year and featured the single, “This Flight Tonight,” a song written by Canadian Joni Mitchell, which became a huge hit throughout Europe and Canada.
The following year brought the album Rampant and a massive tour to support its release. The band played 50 shows in 9 countries throughout Europe and Scandinavia, and put three NAZARETH albums (Razamanaz, Loud ‘n’ Proud and Rampant) in the Top 20 at the same time. American success and international acclaim was brought in 1975 by NAZARETH’s album, Hair Of The Dog. The American version of the album contained the beautiful, “Love Hurts,” which still sets the standard for a rock ballad vocal to this day.
From 1971 till now, NAZARETH has recorded 23 studio albums, earning them Platinum, Gold and Silver Awards throughout the world, with 3 Platinum and 8 Gold Award albums coming from Canada alone. Their latest album, released in 2014, Rock ‘n’ Roll Telephone, was described by one music critic as “one more masterpiece,” so we will just leave it at that.
