Product description

Product Description

Released in 1982 and 1983 respectively, 2XS and Sound Elixir were focused primarily on the US market and as such took a more polished, melodic, AOR direction than had ever been the case on Nazareth albums before - with some success. Additional guitarist Billy Rankin certainly added a new edge to the song writing, although Nazareth had been making a living out of their own, trademark stomp for too long to change their style completely. Despite problems with their label behind the scenes, with 2XS Nazareth turned out an album with many high points, notably the US radio smash Love Leads To Madness and the massive single Dream On. The huge success of the latter meant that they were caught between two stools in song writing terms and took a more cautious, less aggressive approach on the follow up. Still, there is plenty of good material on Sound Elixir. All Nite Radio and I Ran took a funk-rock approach and the crystal-clear sound is a producer s dream, all liquid guitars and reverberating vocals. When Sound Elixir finds its feet here, it delivers in spades. Rags To Riches has a similar approach sleek 80s radio rock with textured guitars rather than riffs and it contrasts neatly with Local Still, a more aggressive boogie-based number in the Status Quo vein. The album closes with its most successful number, Where Are You Now, released as a single in Germany and one of the most memorable songs that Nazareth recorded in the 80s. Nazareth s 14th and 15th albums (1982 and 1983) released together on one disc. Features high class Naz rockers like Boys In the Band, Gatecrash and I Ran plus a fistful of classic ballads such as Love Leads To Madness, Where are You Now and Dream On. Remastered for the finest sound quality. Packaged in a stylish and sturdy wallet-style digipack. 16-page booklet includes comprehensive notes by respected rock scribe Joel McIver, rare photos and memorabilia.
