Biography

You couldn’t invent the story of Nazareth if you tried. At their peak, the Dunfermline rock group were huge, selling vast quantities of albums and pulling in enormous crowds to their shows. By rights, when the group’s profile receded a little and they morphed into the highly respected club-level regulars that they are today, their reputation should have become tarnished – but ...

At last...Nazareth, after flirting with soul less pop tunes integrating swathes of keyboards and 'catchy' sing-a-long choruses during the 80s have returned with a vengeance to their earthy hard rock roots. This album is a fine epitaph to the much missed and underrated drummer Daryl Sweet, and their finest since the magnificent 'No Mean City'album of 1978. Dan McCafferty's vocals, although sometimes a little suspect in concert, certainly rasps and hollers in true hard-living, whisky drinkin' style throughout Boogaloo. With the funk blues soaked guitars underpinned by the tight pumping rhythm of Agnew and Sweet, Boogaloo straddles the musical heights of early 70's Nazareth. A compendium of styles infuses this record from the straight ahead rockiness of 'Lights Come Down'and 'Open Up Woman' to the funkiness of 'Loverman'and 'Party At The Kremlin' to the balladrey of 'May Heaven Keep You', Boogaloo contains something for all lovers of the classic 70's rock sound. Let us hope that Nazareth will continue despite the loss of Daryl, as Boogaloo provides strong evidence of this highly talented Scottish bands rediscovery of what once made them so popular.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine legacy for Darrell Sweet. 28 Jan 2006
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
This album is both a joyous occasion and a deeply sad one. Joyous because it shows that Nazareth of the 21st century are still one of the best groups around and deeply sad because it was the last album before drummer and founder member Darrell Sweet passed away. I'm sure Darrell would be proud of this album though, and rightly so.
The sounds of Nazareth's previous two albums featuring Billy Rankin on guitar has gone. They were excellent albums, but Rankin helped take the group in a new direction. Out went Rankin and enter Jimmy Murrison and back we go to the Nazareth sound of old; hard bluesy rock played better than anybody else on the planet. Nazareth also added keyboard player Ronnie Leahy to their line up and you can hear the imput of Jimmy and Ronnie in the songs; they give a little modernisation to the songs, and they sound new and fresh.
Tracks like Light Comes Down and Open Up Woman are as heavy as Nazareth have ever done, where as Cheerleader, Loverman and Talk Talk have all the qualities of well written bluesy Nazareth tracks of the seventies with a distinct 21st century edge. Other tracks like Robber And The Roadie and Party At The Kremlin are so catchy that you will never resist the urge to stand up and strut your funky stuff. The ballads get a look in as well with the beautiful (and now slightly poignant) May Heaven Keep You.
This album is a seventies style Nazareth album with 21st century workings. Ronnie Leahy adds a great new dimension to the sound of Nazareth and Jimmy Murrison is possibly the best guitarist Nazareth have had (yes, maybe even better than Manny Charlton). Both men work flawlessly with founders Pete Agnew, Darrell Sweet and Dan McCafferty, who by the way still has the greatest voice in rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE RETURN OF THE ROCK BAND NAZARETH...4.5 STARS 30 May 2012
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At long last Nazareth,the rock band returns,this double pack wipes away the wasted 80's,guitars to the fore,drums pounding and crucially great songs,the fire was back.

disc 1 MOVE ME (1994) What a disc,11 prime rock tracks,8 solely penned by lead guitarist Billy Rankin,its hard to believe he prefer NO JIVE over this disc.From the moment 'Let Me Be Your Dog' swaggers out of the speakers,all sass and b*lls,you know this is going to be good,the Hard rock of 'Cant Shake These Shakes' just confirms the point while the Aerosmith tinged 'Crack me Up' just rams the point home.So it continues,the title track majestic ,various slow burners such as 'Demon Alcohol' and 'Steamroller' will eventually burrow into your mind,while the melancholy lyric of 'Burning Down is plain beautiful.

Bonus tracks ..5 the rock orchestra version of 'Love Hurts,in my humble opinion,the definitive version,while 3 acoustic unplugged tracks 'Razamanaz/My White Bicycle and This Flight Tonight,make you wish for a full album ,only the last bonus track failing to deliver,a rather unneccesary instrumental version of 'Love Hurts. Its criminal when you think of the sales of ,say Aerosmiths 'Get A Grip from 1993,this is superior in everY department,yet totally overlooked.A superb album 4.5 stars

Disc 2 BOOGALOO (1998) 4 years after MOVE ME, this is a perfect follow up,another hard rock masterpiece,sadly Daryl Sweet's final album its a fine tribute.With Jimmy Murrison now on board,the band rocked as if their lives depended on it.

1.0 out of 5 stars a great band gone downhill 24 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
amount of tracks:11
excellent :0
v.good :0
good :2
fair :6
poor :3

ive tended to stay clear of nazareths latest efforts, simply cos i know from painful experience that from 1980 onwards they were only half the band they were in the 70's (on a RECORDING basis that is, live they are as powerful as they ever were) bought this however on the strength of a few reviews on amazon saying that this is some of the best and heaviest work theyve done to date. ok. so it was worth a tenner to find out.

it starts promisingly - 'light comes down' is actually a pretty stormin track - but the ominous sounds of cheesy keyboard are there in the background giving ominous signs of things to come. by the second track its well established. soon after its a honky tonk piano and it all descends into pub rock&roll chas and dave 12 bar by numbers rock. just like a lot of their material since the end of the 70's. dan is in fine voice throughout (would he be anything else?) but the material is very weak and some of the lyrics are plain cliched and embarassing

i HATE saying all this cos nazareth remain one of my favourite bands from the 70's and their albums from this period are all very worthy. some being real classics. and dan mccafferty was and remains one of the greatest rock singers ever - but dan, oh dan - surely you must hear the difference when you put this on next to , say, 'razamanaz'? this is weak, feeble stuff. its the reason why nazareth are now merely a nostalgia act treading the boards for a pension, same as budgie, and jethro tull, and ufo, and deep purple. no one takes them very seriously anymore cos their recording output nowadays and for the last 20 odd years has been so far behind the incendiary releases from their early days.
