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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard rock at it's very best. 12 Nov 2005
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
Eight tracks long and a running time of around 40 minutes; the way a 70's rock album should be...and they don't come much better than this one.
The first track sets the tone, sqeeling guitars, thundering drums, catchy bass and a vocal delivery that will have you reaching for the Strepsals. Dan McCafferty has been mentioned as a great influence by singers such as Axl Rose and Danny Bowes, and you can hear why.
Tracks 1,3,5,7 and 8 are rockers that stand up to anything the so called supergroups of today have churned out. They would sound in place on a Metallica album, but Nazareth seem to do it with more class and restrain which really allows the vocals to stand out, where other lesser vocalists would be drowned out by such bombastic music.
Tracks 2,4 and 6 are more melodic. May The Sunshine is a great power ballad that Bon Jovi would be proud of, whereas Star is a real emotional ballad which you could easily picture R.E.O Speedwagon or Chicago tackling.
Every track could have been a single and would have stormed up the charts if they had been sung by a more 'fasionable' group. In particular, check out Simple Solutions and No Mean City; they are rockers that blow many 'bigger bands' away.
Without a weak track among the playlist, if you are looking for a classic sounding hard rock offering from the 70's, you will not be able to do much better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars mean enough 12 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
nazareth, they gave me a hardrockshot up the behind and changed my existence as a raving slade fanatic. still today, a practising musician for a few decades, they never cease to amaze me - this weapon of a voice not mentioned - they bore one, in this case two, of the finest scotsmen to ever trade their kilt for a trusty gibson.
manny charlton and zal cleminson - like all marriages made in heaven (including mine), short but intense. after all these years, this is a mighty fine reissue, so let`s wait and sent our prayers to those in charge: where`s live stuff from that aera????

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 23 Mar 2013
By Justin
Format:Audio CD
Took a couple of listens but this is a real grower. Personal favourites are "What's in it for me, and No Mean City" Cracking album especially if you are on a good driving road!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best captures the Nazareth "sound" 9 Jun 2005
By Mike Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to this since it came out in 1978. "Just to Get into it", "May the Sun Shine" and "Whatever You Want Babe" are classic Nazareth. The 8 original tracks are all solid, not a bad one in the bunch. "Claim To Fame" "Whatever You Want Babe" and "What's In It For Me" appear sequentially on the album and seem to all be about the same relationship, viewed from 3 different times, or perspectives. The 5 bonus track edits don't really add anything. A must have for Nazareth fans. If your looking to buy a Nazareth CD, I'd reccommend this as the one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nazareth - 'No Mean City' (Eagle) 3 1/2 stars 17 Jan 2007
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1978, this was the Scottish rocker's follow-up to their notorious in-your-face 'Show No Mercy'. For this album, Nazareth pulled in an additional member, guitarist Zal Cleminson (of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band). Tracks on this effort may not be AS recognizable as some of their other material, but 'No Mean City' is still good nonetheless. Tunes that, I personally liked the most were their somewhat Zeppelin-like "May The Sunshine", "Star", "Claim To Fame" and the title cut "No Mean City,Parts 1-2". Basically,decent old school '70's hard rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as good if not better than Hair of the Dog 24 Feb 2006
By Hellion Zephreid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The addition of Zal Cleminson (formerly of SAHB) to the Nazareth lineup had me scratching my head at the time. Expect No Mercy was a powerful record and they had been playing as a four piece forever so it didn't make sense at the time. I didn't undrstand. After playing both sides in 1978, I realized what they had done was brought another songwriter into the fold who could also play guitar. And this thing really rocked. Just to Get into It, Simple Solution (Pt. 1 and 2) and No Mean City (Pt. 1 and 2), wow! Still not sure why (Pt. 1 and 2) for 2 different songs but what the hey! And the ballad Star, should have been bigger than Love Hurts a few years earlier if released as a single. I own the Castle reissue that has contains no bonus tracks but is still a winner. The 5 tracks are bonus cuts of songs already on here, just edited or alternate version. A very good record. Only 4 stars due to the filler May the Sunshine, Claim to Fame, and Whatever You Want Babe. Not every song has to be a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Mean As the Cover 12 Nov 2006
By E. MORRIS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Just to Get Into It" is worth the price. If you play this opening cut on "11", just hang on. Best cut to never make any of their compilations.
