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 ...

Product Description

Product Description

The first new album since 2011 from the hard rock heroes who’ve sold over 30 million albums features 11 classic heavy rockers and bluesy ballads. This double vinyl gatefold version (also available as a 2 CD digipack) includes 7 bonus tracks.

 ‘When we began working on Rock ‘n’ Roll Telephone we had no idea that it might be Dan’s last album with the band, so to have it turn out so fantastically well has been a real delight. This is an album that will remain in our hearts and mind for a long time. ENJOY!’ Nazareth February 2014


'The album is very much in the classic Nazareth tradition - heavy, no frills rock 'n' roll with that rasping voice its unmistakable signature. Dan McCafferty long ago sealed his reputation as one of the all-time great rock singers, (and) if this album does prove to be his last, he'll be bowing out with that reputation intact.' --Classic Rock magazine (UK) April 2014

'It's downright amazing that after 45 years of triumph and tragedy Nazareth are still making albums this damn good, still sounding fresh, vital and enthused by their own music. Rock 'n' Roll Telephone shows that they are still operating at the peak of their powers.' 9 out of 10 --Power Play April 2014

'If this is the last Nazareth studio album with Dan McCafferty, all I can say, is what a way to go... a wonderful swansong. From the catchy opener 'Boom Bang Bang', the harder 'One Set Of Bones' and the even catchier 'Back 2B4' to the heavier 'Not Today' and a rocking 'God Of The Mountain' the album pretty much sums up all that has gone before.'**** --Get Ready To Rock (UK)

5.0 out of 5 stars Naz Pizazzzzz! 12 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can’t recall such an extensive PR campaign for a Naz album, the resultant buzz, the excitement that has prevailed over these last couple of months. So what is the verdict for Rock n Roll Telephone?

Will first impressions on playing it be similar to the experiences of years ago for such albums as No Mean City, “incredible”, or Malice “eh?”

One of the reasons I love Naz is that you are virtually guaranteed to find a tune in every song on any album. This, though, was not quite the case with The Newz but thankfully order was mostly restored with Big Dogz.

Crank up the volume and let proceedings commence…There are some seriously good songs delivered in the traditional meaty Naz way with Boom Bang Bang the best opener since Hire and Fire. One Set of Bones keeps the tempo high with in your face guitars and finely paced bass and drums and I’m sure will develop into, after more listens, a great Naz album track. I am still trying to catch the tune as it is a bit stop start, though good guitar riff. Next up we have the community singing style of Back2B4, (hints of Stuck In The Middle With You) making this an endearing laid back slice of acoustic Naz at their best.

Winter Sunlight, a beautiful mellow song (hints of Child In The Sun singing from Dan and Pete), though to have it as track four immediately after Back2B4 I feel contributes to losing a bit of tempo on the album at this stage. That is immediately put right with the album’s title track and Jimmy’s glorious meaty and mean guitar work supported by a kick ass performance on bass. At times the lyrics are a bit clumsy yet overall a great Naz track to take you by the throat and drag you through the meanest and roughest Russian airport.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out with a Boom Bang Bang 10 Jun 2014
By Ray Fox
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The last Album with Dan McCafferty and what a way to go for him though the band will continue with a new vocalist.

The album is very heavy and tight as a unit and perhaps the best we have heard in recent years and that is saying something both in the studio and 'live' because if there is one thing you get with Nazareth it is quality. The highlights for me are Boom Bang Bang, Back 2B4, Rock N Roll Telephone and God of the Mountain really does leave you stood on a peak! CD 2 carries 2 more good tracks and then some 'live' ones for the archives. The whole package is quality, hard rock and blues and I do hope Dan despite health problems he might be able to develop some solo work. There is still much to offer. I cannot believe after first hearing these boys in Germany with my cousin in his record collection when I was nine years old (1969), seeing them live and after years of good albums they are still cutting it in 2014. You wont see many bands of today still around over 40 years later.

Well done boys!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Band Is On A Roll... 9 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
so it is a shame that Dan has had to leave the band during their second peak. The album is full of energy, the kind that would make a lot of younger bands blush. The music is a fine mix between ear numbing heaviness and a few softer songs. If you're going to go out, might as well go out on top.

A fantastic album and a wonderful send off to the bands original frontman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dan bows out in style... 11 Jun 2014
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Completing the trilogy that started with 2008's 'The Newz' followed by 'Big Dogz' in 2011,we now have 'Rock n Roll Telephone',excellent title,it has a ring to it (sorry- couldnt help myself).Once again produced by Yann Rouiller,he again creates a razorsharp production,truth be told it could be BIG DOGZ part 2,if you werent fond of that album,then this may not be for you.

Eleven tracks in 44 mins,short and sweet,straight to the point, the album follows the pattern as before rockers (Boom Bang Bang/One Set Of Bones) and ballads (Winter Sunlight/The Right Time),some of the lyrics could easily be applied/interpreted as reflecting on Dans health and resultant departure,there's definitely a melancholy,sadness to some of the tracks,which is understandable.The disc closes with two belters 'Speakeasy' and 'God of the Mountain'.

Disc 2 at approx 35 mins could have easily been placed on the main cd, 2 studio tracks ,'Wanna Feel Good' being the best,probably too upbeat for the main disc and a selection of 'Live ' tracks,ranging from an average 'Big Boy' too a superb rendition of 'Sunshine' and a manic version of 'Expect No Mercy.

Personally i still think Big Dogz tops this one but its a great way to bow out,thanks Dan for the music and the memories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Undervalued band with another very fine album. 10 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well if it is Dan's last recorded output with the band he can look back with pride on an outstanding catalogue (minus most of their 80s output) of music over the last 45 years. Since the bands renaissance back in 1998 with the Boogaloo album after years of producing kitsch 80s pop / hair metal music they have re-discovered their mojo and returned to their blues based rock with a touch of sassy funk and boogie.
Dan's vocal remain the epitome of a REAL rock singer akin to sounding like AC / DC's Brian Johnson gargling with broken glass. The album starts off with an outstanding shuffle - like riff with the title being all you need to know about the lyrics...dirty boys!! Highlights thereafter, for me, is a beautiful ballad 'Winter Sunshine' (maybe it will replace the irritating Love Hurts during their concerts), the pounding 'One Set Of Bones' and the heavy boogie shuffle of 'Not Today' and maybe Dan's best vocal on 'Just A Ride' (deluxe edition). Another notable mention is the rather strange 'Long Long Time' with it's funky guitar picking riff that really gets under the skin. Could be a good candidate for a single.
Aside from the misstep of a rather dreary blues ballad 'The Right Time' the remainder ain't too shabby either!

For many i know the band are perceived as a purely 70's act and that their best days are behind them. Therefore may i suggest you give this album a try and the preceding maybe pleasantly surprised.

I know Dan is unlikely to read this short review but you and the band have been an integral soundtrack to me for most of my life. The band has given me so much pleasure and i'm deeply saddened that you cannot do it 'live' anymore. Please don't be lost to music and fingers crossed we can look forward to new music from you. Of course most importantly take care of yourself.
As for the rest of the band...very good luck to you all for the future especially to the new you have some shoes to fill lad.

If you like Nazareth then you'll love Rock 'n' Roll Telephone. Plenty of great hard rocking songs with a couple of slower tunes but equally as good, just what you would expect. Read more
