Almost Loud n Proud,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nazareth - Hair Of The Dog Live[DVD]   (DVD)
This is a reissue. Don't be fooled by the claims that its anything else. It first appeared on VHS in the UK back in the early 1980's. Accordingly the quality is not that great - a bit like a US tv show from the era. The film captures Nazareth circa 1981 in the US playing a decent sized indoor venue with the Fool Circle line up. I felt it was a bit of an average performance and not representative of a typical show even from the era. The film (as its not 100% concert footage) includes videos using child actors -the directors interpretations of some of the Fool Circle tracks -, which i bypass very time i watch this - they are nothing short of annoying. The intersections of off stage footage is good and gives an insight of the band on the road in the states with snippets of conversations MAINLY from Dan, Pete & Billy. The addition of John Locke on keyboards i would suggest compromised rather than added to their live shows, and totally ruined older songs live - check out This Flight Tonight, which is a classic Naz track - with Locke's keys ruining the whole feel. However overall this is an entertaining package but not their finest hour.
