Nazareth Takes Flight – Today’s Vinyl Vault
Scottish rockers Nazareth will always be known for their 1975 album Hair of the Dog, thanks to it’s hairy title track and the (apparently) timeless ballad Love Hurts. This is unfortunate, really, because the band released upteen high quality albums during their 1970’s heyday that were little more than ignored here in the States, but got attention elsewhere. 1973’s Loud ‘n’ Proud was one, where the boys covered Joni Mitchell’s This Flight Tonight, that was a hit in both Canada and the UK, generating enough interest here that it did get limited airplay, and is still remembered by the serious fans.
