Nazareth

ARTICLE ABOUT Nazareth FROM SOUNDS, May 17, 1975

To me it is obvious that the writer of this article isn`t too fond of rock music. So it is a bit surprising, and also pleasing, to see that he remains objective in his review. This review could potentially be a catastrophe, but actually ends up really well.
Have fun and read on!

Nazareth on a Summer`s eve

By Howard Fielding

It was with some trepidation that we set off on the overland track to Salisbury last Sunday, to see Nazareth – it was a warm Summer evening, the kind you spend sitting outside a country pub listening to the gentle sound of nature.
It didn`t feel like the night to spend crammed together in a sweaty crowd of raucous rock fans stamping and shouting their appreciation of Nazareth`s brand of heavy music. Also I`d been getting a little bored, lately, of the kind of music which relies too much on bass drums and deafening volume – it`s all right for Wintery evenings, but not for the impending delicacy of Summer.
Though Nazareth didn`t seem to fit the bill, although it was a long time no see, it might make a change and so it did, and I can say sincerely, and with considerable relief, that the evening was pleasant, entertaining and enjoyable especially in giving the lie to my misconceptions.
Nazareth are a moderately weighty band, but I`d forgotten how much variety and interest they give to their set, and how they combine in their music many of the hallmarks of an excellent band. But before them came Mike Hugg`s new band Hug, an interesting prospect for anyone who enjoyed his silky husky voice in his days with Manfred Mann and subsequently in his fine solo work, but there`s been a considerable change of style, to far more direct and forceful music, led principally by the striking guitar work of John Knightsbridge. A band with many possibilities, this, and well worth seeing. Hopefully they`ll get their sound better mixed in future, so that the top and bottom end of the drum kit doesn`t drown the middle ranges of the other musicians – when Ron Telemak did play a drum solo you hardly noticed there was any change. But it`s nice to see the man back on the road again.

IMG_2942

Nazareth started their set with title `Changin` Times` from the new album, a well-bought record in the Salisbury area, judging by the crowd`s response. Straight away, the reaction, one felt, was reassuring – the sound, for one thing, though pretty loud, was well balanced and you could hear and distinguish quite clearly what each person was playing. Initially, it was Manny Charlton, surprisingly enough, who took the eye – playing short solo breaks which people like to call tasteful. When that means anything, it implies that the solo part is complementary to the rest of the music – it`s one of my criteria of a good musician – and Charlton gets good marks for it. In fact, only twice in the whole set did he play anything which could mildly be described as irrelevant or indulgent – and those were very short and quite entertaining little flurries.
Then, during the second and third songs, there was time to notice the light show, one of the brightest sets for a rock band currently in use as I had forcibly explained to me – but it was good, and again, fitted round the music. The band work their visual groupings pretty well, often gathering in small clumps around Don McCafferty, and not satisfied with standing morosely still, or stomping about distractedly. It`s impressive to see a band who have rehearsed what it seems necessary to rehearse and to leave the rest to their own personalities.
Charlton`s guitar changes, Pete Agnew`s bass change, McCafferty`s changing of mikes and slipping on of white gloves for the ultra violet effects of `Jet Lag` all showed smooth polish but without losing their personal expression in the music the rest of the time. As the set moved on, and I was surprised how many songs the band got through, you could see how well put together their act is. There`s a well thought-out collection of songs, varying from the slow stuff, like Randy Newman`s `Guilty` which it takes a good band to do well – to the more familiar furious pace they play at most of the time. But lots of people like nothing better than having their ears bashed – and good luck to them – Nazareth can cater for their taste. What distinguishes this band from the mundane, though sometimes more famous, loud and nasty men is that you can sit and listen to Nazareth as well. There`ll always be a market for bodyline rock. What is important is that people should be able to distinguish good from bad and as long as Nazareth get picked out as a superior quality rock band you can be pleased that we still have some taste in this country.

ARTICLE ABOUT Nazareth FROM SOUNDS, September 21, 1974

Great article from a point in this band`s career where things were beginning to really take off for them. What a great band this was. In my opinion, they deserve to be in the rock and roll hall of fame more than almost anyone else that they still haven`t inducted.

IMG_2417

Die-hard Scots and Welshmen keep trucking

Pete Makowski reports from Munich

Well it`s only been two years since Nazareth stepped off the stage of the Marquee and entered the world of concert tours and international success. It seemed to happen so fast, didn`t it? A hit single and a headlining tour seemed to appear from nowhere, but those who solidly supported the band in their early years will realize this was no flash in the pan.
The last time I saw the band was at their first headlining date at the Rainbow, which was a bit of a disaster. You could say they blew it that night, although they had total command in places of the Marquee`s stature and Ally Pally, it seemed that they lacked the requirements at a fully sized concert hall.
The show lacked the strength and quality to qualify their headlining position. Still that was their debut to stardom and the ultra cool surrounds of Finsbury Park was no place to judge an up and coming band, especially when you`ve seen them rip other places apart.

QUALITY

These four Scots lads have carved their way to success with sheer hard work and good solid rock and roll. The band`s touring itinerary is still as full as ever, and they have been touring consistently since the beginning. Their output of records has been as much as three albums per year, which I feel lost out on the quality of the group, especially their last effort “Rampant”, where the lack of ideas was painfully obvious.
Although the musicianship was improving, the material (apart from a couple of tracks) lacked any originality and certainly didn`t match up to the standards of “Razamanaz” and its predecessors.
Still these die hard Scotsmen keep trucking on and this year is bringing them into larger amounts of spandoolicks (readies) as they continue to break into new territory, which should explain how I managed to blag my way to see them in Munich during their first headlining tour of Germany.
This was going to reveal Naz`s new stage act, which was reputedly a scorcher. Now that`s something that should not be missed by any heavy metal damme or herron.
The band were due to play the Circus Krone – a concrete circus which houses some resident tigers of mammoth size – and the circular, dome-shaped hall inside accommodated about 3,000 people.
The Naz lads entered the hall looking fit `n` fine. Dan McCafferty, the man with the granite-like features, strode up confidently to have a chat before the band`s soundcheck.
“Munich is like the London of Germany”, said an exuberant Mr. McCafferty. “I mean, the kids here get 28 good concerts per month, they`re spoiled. That`s why a place like Glasgow Apollo is THE best venue, the kids there sweat their balls off as much as the band.”
The man responsible for the Krone gigs was Karl, a shifty, obese character who spent most of his time eating, and reportedly falls asleep at the side of the stage during gigs. “Tonight`s concert is important”, he explained to Naz`s manager, Bill Feheely – a jovial character. “All of Germany`s Press will be here.” The words came out with awe-struck tones that made you think the Fuhrer himself was about to arrive.
Suddenly familiar Welsh tones were heard from the backstage area. It was the Man band and Co. The band have just begun their tour and they were appearing tonight along with Stan Webb`s new band.

Originally the bill`s line-up was intended to be only Naz and Budgie, but our feathered friends got a touch of the homesick blues and departed, cutting their tour schedule short. Oh vell, das icht Rock en Roll.
Nazareth have recently returned from the States and their progress, reports Dan, is slow but sure. I asked him when we`d be seeing the lads on home territory again. “You`ve probably heard this before from other bands”, he said, “but whenever we tour Britain we lose bread, so do most bands.” But THEY tour in Britain because it`s their country and they love it.
“We`ve got to spend a lot of time touring abroad, to top up the economical side of the business but I should imagine we`ll be touring in Britain early next year, after the next album has been completed.”
The band returned on stage to proceed with the soundcheck. A few bars of “Shanghaid In Shanghai”, “This Flight Tonight” and their rendition of Randy Newman`s “Guilty”, and it was all over. The sound was good and the group seemed happy with it.
We returned to the hotel, sat round in the bar and Dan spoke of the band`s experience in Iceland, where a bottle of scotch cost £10 and tickets for the concert were £7.
Manny entered the lobby of the hotel clutching a copy of Dicky Bett`s new album. Manuel “Manny” Charlton is the quiet one, who bears the features of a Spanish matador, with his continental black moustache. When he talks it`s usually to do with the band, the main subject of the evening being the band`s next album.
Who would be the producer? Would it be a live one? Where would it be recorded? These and many more questions have yet to be answered and as the night progresses the tinge of seriousness started to fade.
“The producer`s got to be called Jock McTavish”, said Dan. “See this segregation”, said Steve, the Cockney lights` manager.
By the time we reached the gig in the evening, Stan Webb`s band had finished boogying and Man were about to get on.
The dressing room was full of booze and food, provided by the promoter. The band made themselves comfortable, Manny disappeared into the next room to tune up his guitar. Darryl Sweet, who by now was wearing his third pair of spectacles, looked thinner and healthier.

IMG_2419

HARDER

He disappeared and reappeared wearing a silver, blue and white jerkin with trousers to match. You can say that Darryl Sweet burst into the dressing room wearing a suit that matched his drum kit.
I only managed to catch a few brief moments of Man. Suffice to say they are as tasteful as ever, and should undoubtedly do well for themselves, and, as expected, the audience reaction was pretty laid back.
Since the departure of their keyboard player Man music seems to have got much harder, which is inevitable with Deke on the front line. This gig proved to be a good starter for their forthcoming British tour.
Backstage Naz were preparing themselves for the gig. Their attire is not glitter – effective rather than flash, which can also be said for their music. Suddenly out of the blue popped ex-Silverhead guitarist Robbie Blunt, who is currently with Stan Webb.
The band have been going down well. They`ve already got the advantage of Webb`s popularity in Germany, but I`m sure the addition of Blunt plays a big part in it. They`ll also be recording an album and playing in Britain soon.
“I`ll just change into my poofy jacket”, said Dan as he headed for the adjoining room.
The band were about to go on, the lights in the hall were off, and the band could barely be seen walking on stage and plugging in. The audience in the front section got on their feet and began cheering while the kids in the surrounding area sat back and coolly clapped… very similar to a Rainbow crowd.
The band went straight into “Silver Dollar Forger”, the lights went out and a spot was concentrated on a shimmering tambourine which Dan was holding high in the air. This was followed by “Razamanaz”, a hard rocker featuring some cutting guitar from Manny.
The acoustic of the hall gave the PA a muzzy sound, which was balanced out by the third number “Alcatraz”. The audience were beginning to gather enthusiasm and gradually the back row mob began joining in. Naz kept on playing the numbers with high energy and professionalism. Their whole approach and performance has moved into a new dimension.
Some hard rocking with “Turn On Your Receiver” and a superb version of Little Feat`s “Teenage Nervous Breakdown” closely followed by “Bad, Bad Boy”, with Manny playing some fiery slide. “Guilty”, a slow bluesy number, highlighted the vicious vocals of Mr. McCafferty.

AMAZING

“Jet Lag” took on a whole new style with some incredible guitar from Manny with Pete Agnew accompanying him on twelve bars. This featured Dan on the voice box – a gadget which, in conjunction with guitar, produces an amazing moog type sound. The band featured a medley of numbers consisting of “Amazing Grace”, “F.B.I.” and “Smoke On The Water”.
By now the audience were worked up and it was “This Flight Tonight” that brought the whole place to its feet. Tough bass from Agnew and spacey guitar from Charlton, along with McCafferty`s hard vocals, make this one of the finest records they`ve made. The set was completed with a spectacular version of “Shape Of Things To Come”, featuring three mirror balls flashing from the ceiling and strobes.
There was no doubt that the band would have to come back for an encore. They returned to play “Woke Up This Morning”, featuring some powerful slide boogie from Charlton.
I made my way to the back of the stage where one of the promoters was saying that this was the best concert he`s seen here for a year and Karl was moaning that it was the first time kids have stood on the seats.
The band finished the number, but had to return again. “What shall we play?” asked Agnew as he leapt back onto stage. “Mmm let`s do `Morning Dew` said Charlton. The band haven`t played the number for over a year and it made a fine finish to the night.
When the band return to Britain you will see a totally new group. Their act is polished, has the substance, dynamics, excitement and competence to put them in the big league. Oh yes, the lads from the Gangy have come a long way in the last two years, which makes you wonder what we`ll see two years from now.

ARTICLE ABOUT Nazareth FROM SOUNDS, July 20, 1974

When it comes to music, the Scottish people really should be proud of having such a great band as Nazareth in their midst. They were one of the most popular bands when I grew up in the 70s, and at school you either liked Nazareth or you liked Abba. There was nothing else for a while, and the imagery of Nazareth`s album covers were difficult not to notice and be impressed by as a young boy. That`s not to say that I wasn`t studying Abba`s album covers as much, looking for Agnetha…. Oh well, here is a good one with Dan McCafferty from the vaults.

img_2218

Back in the USA

Proving for the second week running that he has a way with `phones, Ray Telford talks to Dan McCafferty from Florida.

As Billy Walker so succinctly put it after I`d put down the phone on Dan McCafferty who`d called from West Palm Beach, Florida, last week, “Nazareth are nice guys”. Nice guys they are too and so is Bill (he`s managed to keep that way by assiduously avoiding most of the music business assholes and as a result has maintained a reasonably normal head). He also digs Nazareth`s music to some degree which makes his observations on the Naz all the more palatable and genuine – yet another rarity in the music business.
Nazareth are now into the last week of their fourth US tour, a tour which Dan reports has won them a lot of ground with American punters even despite the fact that their last visit there ended up as a complete non event.
The last projected American tour for the band was in January of this year when they were due to support (along with S. Quo) some outfit which was going out under the name of Fleetwood Mac. It was not, of course, the real thing and rather than become part of the great Fleetwood hype Dan and the boys opted out and flew back to their Scottish homes for a few days respite before jetting it to Switzerland to finish off a new album, the recently released “Rampant”.
If Nazareth hadn`t sold so many albums as they have over the past couple of years then the ready excuse would`ve been of course that they were primarily a band to be heard live and that the magic didn`t quite become so apparent when the music was transferred onto magnetic tape, but the fact that they have sold albums in vast quantities both here and on the Continent proves that lots of people hold the band and their hard, brittle rock and roll in pretty high esteem.

As for the States… well Dan reckons it takes a few cracks at the place before you even begin to think you`re getting a foothold and this present tour he guardedly told me had achieved precisely that. The albums released in America so far, discounting “Rampant”, have been doing good business and the interest from press and the radio stations has been more than encouraging.
“All the same,” Dan needlessly informed me, “America is such a bloody big place. You can break big with the radio stations and the people in one State and maybe the neighbouring State too if you`re lucky but then there`s still the other side of the country to come to terms with.
“That`s why so many bands touring here see it as an endless round of gigs with so much hard slog you wouldn`t believe it. At least if you play just one whizz bang tour in Britain you can be sure that everybody is going to pick up on how well you`ve done. It seems like it`s more instant – that`s really the big difference.”
On the present tour Nazareth have been sharing bills with what Dan calls a string of good crowd pullers and are pleased with what they have achieved in terms of audience reaction and general musical progress. In Washington, he says, they met up with Little Feat, who apparently have not fallen apart contrary to all rumours this side of the pond.
It was one of Lowell George`s songs (Little Feat`s slide guitar player), in fact that Naz took it on themselves to record on the “Razamanaz” album and which has since become a main feature of the band`s live sets.
“It really was a great night,” confirmed Dan. “The whole thing was perfect and they certainly didn`t seem to me like a group who were about to bust up. Anybody who plays like they do really have no right to call it a day. They`re that good.”

img_2219

On their return from America next week, Dan looks forward once again to being with his wife and son at their home near Dunfermline. He admits never to have had much time for the supposed trappings of a pop star`s life, and winces at the thought of having to leave his family at home while the band are on the road.
“There`s too many tense moments on a tour like this to have your wife and kids around. It wouldn`t be fair on them and it wouldn`t be fair on the band either `cause it is work. There`s no way you can call it a family way of life and luckily all our wives realise and respect that.”
The new Nazareth album, Dan happily reports is well in hand as far as suitable material goes. They had hoped to record some of the songs in America but time wasn`t on their side and so plans had to be shelved.
“We have written a few things, though we haven`t had a proper chance to rehearse them. The only chance we`ve had is to write them roughly on acoustic guitars in hotel rooms and then try them out at sound checks which isn`t really much good but the ideas are there and that`s what`s important. We`re due to come back to the States towards the end of the year and we`ll almost certainly be recording some stuff then.
“I`d like to try that studio in Florida where Clapton did his new album – there are some really nice sounds on that. Meanwhile we`re dying to get home and back to some sanity. We need to see our families again. Too right we do.”

ARTICLE ABOUT Nazareth FROM SOUNDS, January 19, 1974

This interview was done just before the band travelled to make an album that would end up having one of their most striking album covers, Rampant, released in late April 1974.
The only cover version on this album was “Shapes of Things”, a song that would be “Nazarethified” so much that most people think of it as the band`s own, being a live favourite throughout the years. The album would go to number 1 in Austria and peak at number 3 in my home country Norway, being their best position in the charts of any album released here.

Shapes of things to come

Jerry Gilbert talks to Nazareth`s Manny Charlton

Manny Charlton is most concerned about Nazareth`s next album. On the eve of the band`s departure to Switzerland he was busy sorting through demo tapes to be played to producer Roger Glover once they all arrived in Montreux to start work on yet another album.
He regards the speed with which the band churn out albums as being essential, not so much for their own peace of mind as to fulfil their contract but at the same time he is very wary as to the direction the next progression should take the band.
This time, it`ll be an all original album which is already 98 per cent complete. The band may then decide to make up with the Yardbirds` “Shapes Of Things” or “There`s A Riot Going On” or even write another track themselves – for the album has been specifically designed to feature new group material.
“I think there will be a widening of the spectrum, doing things that we haven`t done before. We want to be a bit more adventurous, to incorporate the British feel and aggression with the American musicianship. Imagine Little Feat material done by Led Zeppelin, well that`s the sort of thing we`re after”.
After cutting their last two albums at the Gangy in Jamestown, Scotland, they have been forced to move to Montreux late in the day because of the energy crisis. They will be spending two weeks at the Montreux Concert Centre with the Stones Mobile, and with the material mostly in the can, they are hoping for a fairly straightforward time.

“We like to have a good idea of what it`s going to sound like so we do all the demos at home – then we just hope that when we get down to record it, it all comes together but we find that if we have a sketch of it before we go into the studios then Roger Glover will probably add some ideas”.
Manny admitted that it was difficult hitting a two album a year schedule, and as a result their five week Christmas holiday back home in Dunfermline was used as a solid writing and rehearsing period from midday until five, eight until one in the morning.
Once in Switzerland they`ll be anxious to get back to Britain and rehearse a new stage act for the States. By May they`ll be back touring England to coincide with the release of the album which is as yet untitled.
The irony of it all is that the tightness of their schedule prevents them from doing any gigs in Switzerland, which is not only a country that the band have yet to play but also a place where “Loud & Proud” has hit the number one spot.
“Making albums just gets harder all the time because our standards are continually rising”, says Manny, and perhaps the band still aren`t regarded with the kind of musical respect that they deserve. “I do tend to think that people regard us as just another rock band”, he acquiesced. “OK we`re not the Mahavishnu Orchestra but I think we`re pretty competent.

IMG_2021

“Four or five years ago people would have thought a lot more of us, but even so I don`t think we`re classed like Geordie”.
How did he see his own tastes influencing the band musically? Manny is adamant about the bands he likes, and they mostly hail from the States. “I`ve been listening a lot to Joe Walsh lately and I think he`s the ideal musician. I`d love Nazareth to get to the same position as Joe Walsh or Little Feat because we really want to combine good songs with good playing. In terms of solos onstage I like to play a solo as long as it isn`t indulgent. I`m not up there to play guitar to myself and the band feel like that too – we`re just not that type of band, and besides, most of the solos are tightly rehearsed”.
In the meantime the band continue to move up the ladder in the States.
“Let`s just say we`re making progress”, Manny cut in circumspectly. “I think the time has passed when Americans welcome British bands with open arms, so we`re having to work hard. At the same time we don`t want to lose what progress we`ve made in Britain – we don`t want to become like TYA where we`re never in the country”.
In the interim, Mooncrest will be issuing a single of the band – and it will probably be a song written largely by Manny called “Castles In The Sand”. Says Manny: “It`s a Buddy Holly kind of thing along the lines of `Peggy Sue`. We specifically didn`t want this one to be on the album but if it`s a really big single the record company and management will be tempted to put it on the album because singles sell albums”.

ARTICLE ABOUT Nazareth (and a bit about Silverhead) FROM SOUNDS, November 17, 1973

A short, but nice concert review. Enjoy!

Nazareth Concert Review

By Jerry Gilbert

Poor old Nazareth`s gig at the Rainbow about to be turned into a live album, a sell-out show and a party for the group afterwards, and what happens – a performance which in their eyes at least, was fairly sub-standard.
Not that the band themselves were below par, although there were obvious signs of tension early on, but the sound was terrible both in terms of balance and quality.
All in all they must have caused Roger Glover, who was there to produce the live album, a lot of headaches in spite of the fact that they finally drew the desired response from the audience with a tremendous finish.
Basically it was the old dynamic Nazareth – with that beautifully phased opening to “Night Woman” right on through to “Broken Down Angel”, “Bad Bad Boy” and “Woke Up This Morning” with interludes midway through the set to feature Manny Charlton`s ever improving slide playing and a showcase for the new numbers from “Loud `n` Proud” which included “This Flight Tonight”.
Darrell Sweet huffed and puffed and pounded out some tremendous drum work with Pete Agnew hitting the same volume level with extremely percussive use of bass. Dan McCafferty was also right on form, wailing out strained, piercing vocals, and on another night Nazareth would have scored a resounding victory. It was only the atrocious sound which caused them to falter.
Silverhead, on the other hand were tremendously impressive as the young punk band who pull fewer punches by substituting better music to get results these days. They had the audience on their feet clapping before the end of their set and the rivetting display of Michael De Barres, whose timing is so precise, led the band to a stirring conclusion in the shape and form of “Rock And Roll Band” and “Ace Supreme”, a couple of vintage numbers from their first album. A thoroughly absorbing performance.
