Rock-n-Roll Telephone


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 Raza-remaster rocks 25 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Having bought tickets to see Nazareth in Brighton recently (a great gig, and even better than when I last saw them 25 years earlier in student days), I was browsing round the official Nazareth web site and came across the link to the Salvo remaster series. Although I still have my original Razamanaz LP, it's a bit of a pain to play it and I have grown very used to the convenience of CDs and putting their content on my computer, so I thought I'd risk a little bit on the remaster.

I'm glad I did, it's excellent, you can't believe that this was an album recorded more than 35 years ago. The bonus tracks are good fun too, a couple of B-sides that I don't think made it onto any of the albums, plus BBC session versions of four of the main tracks that I hadn't heard before. There's a neat little booklet with additional notes, interview with Dan McCafferty and Pete Agnew and single sleeve pictures.

Everything sounds clear and fresh but without feeling obviously remixed; it's reignited my passion for a band that I've loved since the mid 70s. For the Nazareth fan, this package is an absolute must. For anyone else who just wants to hear some seminal British rock, I can't recommend it too highly.

By Paul

Razamanaz is Nazareth's third studio album and the one that brought the distintive bluesy sound of the Scottish quartet to the masses. The two albums before this one, Nazareth's self titled debut and Exercises are good albums in their own right, but are a totally different sound to this recording. Razamanaz concentrates on what Nazareth do best; dirty, bluesy workman like rock, and i doubt that many can do it better.
From the bombastic opening of the track Razamanaz through to the pop single chart debut of Broken Down Angel, you will find something here for all. Tracks 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 are true foot stomping rockers unlike anything else of it's time. Bad Bad Boy, another top ten single, and Too Bad Too Sad in particular contains a sense of humour so often ignored by other hard rock acts. Track 3 is a cover of a Woody Guthrie song, Vigilante Man, and it is sung with such pain and anguish that you will want to fall to your knees and weep. Track 5, Night Woman is a song that Nazareth usually do as an encore in their live shows, and you will seldom find a better drum opening than on this track. This was also the first album in which Roger Glover (ex Deep Purple) did the production, and his pedigree in such music shines through like a beacon in the improved sound from their previous albums.
This was the first album which Nazareth showed the world what they can do, and the fact that they have produced albums of the same quality as Razamanaz for over 30 years, shows that no-one realloy does it better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the others to be remastered now 8 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I think I became a Nazareth fan at just the right time with this album having recently been rereleased & remastered and the following albums scheduled for similar treatment in the near future.

Razamanaz, in its remastered form, really is an impressive album. It's a struggle to identify a weak track, and that's one of the real hallmarks of a classic album. From start to finish Razamanaz consists of fast growers, the majority of which are heavy pounding slabs of hard rock/proto-metal, comparable to the energy of Deep Purple, the blues awareness of Led Zep and riffs of AC/DC. The songs are all of a fairly controlled length, with only the Woody Guthrie cover "Vigilante Man" straying past the 5 minute mark (at 5:21), and only two others of the nine passing the 4 minute mark, so the band evidently didn't have quite the inclination to sprawl out 10 minute epics in the studio, probably leaving the improvisational opportunities for the live shows. Given the immediacy of the hooks, radio friendly lengths and sheer attitude and tone, it's kind of difficult to understand that classic rock radio doesn't spin selections from the whole album on a much more regular basis.

Razamanaz should be held in the same high regard that the best of Deep Purple or AC/DC receives. I'm certain of that.

Like most people I was introduced to Scotland's finest rock band by way of their kick-ass single "Bad Bad Boy" when it first hit the airwaves in July 1973. I quickly nipped out to Pat Egan's Sound Cellar in Dublin and nabbed the album too - the fabarooney "Razamanaz" - and I've loved them both ever since.

This is the 2nd title in Salvo's UK reissue of Nazareth's back catalogue - "Nazareth and Exercises" (their first and second albums on 1CD) was their first and it's reviewed separately.

Released in September 2009, SALVOCD031 breaks down as follows (59:22 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "Razamanaz" released in May 1973 in the UK on Mooncrest Records CREST 1 and on A&M Records SP-4396 in the USA. ROGER GLOVER of DEEP PURPLE produced the album to great effect.

Tracks 10 and 11 are "Hard Living" and "Spinning Top", the 2 non-album B-sides to "Bad Bad Boy", the UK 7" single issued on Mooncrest MOON 9 in July 1973

Tracks 12 to 15 are "Razamanaz", "Night Woman", "Broken Down Angel" and "Vigilante Man" - recorded live-in-the-studio in March 1973 for The Bob Harris Radio Show on the BBC

Each of these UK issues comes in a tri-gatefold card sleeve with the 'Loud, Proud & Remastered' logo on the front cover. When folded out, you get a repro of the gatefold artwork of the original UK LP and live shots from the period (the disc in the right flap, the booklet in the left). The 16-page colour booklet is superb, liner notes by band expert JOEL McIVER, pictures of rare UK 7" singles, Euro picture sleeves, US white-label promos, black and white snaps of the band in studio and on stage - all very nicely done.

But the really big news for the fans (as it is on the 1st Salvo CD) is the fantastic new SOUND.
