Nazareth: Razamanaz

Nazareth: Razamanaz
Title: Razamanaz
Label: Salvo

Their classic breakthrough album from 1973 now remastered with 6 bonus tracks & comes in a sturdy wallet-style digipack with a 16 page booklet. It's more than three and a half decades since the release of the album regarded by many Nazareth fans as their finest hour. By their third LP, the Scottish quartet knew exactly what was required to reach the next level of success, having produced a well-regarded debut album (Nazareth, 1971) and a commercially disappointing follow-up (Exercises, '72). The results of the Glover/Naz collaboration speak for themselves. Many of the songs on Razzmatazz are blues-rock classics. One obvious example is the title track, fuelled by a stop-start riff and McCafferty's fully-developed shriek. Bad Bad Boy, Night Woman and Broken Down Angel are also among the finest songs Nazareth ever committed to vinyl. Agnew remembers: "We did Broken Down Angel in Island Studios because Roger wanted that particular sound. He said, 'This is going to be your first hit single'. We all thought that as well. The rest of the album was recorded in a mobile studio up in Scotland. " Not only was Broken Down Angel a hit along with the second 45, Bad Bad Boy, the album itself peaked at No. 11 in the UK album charts and refused to budge, with fans flocking to the subsequent live shows. The band themselves had invested a lot of faith in the LP. As Agnew now recalls, "When we put Razzmatazz out, we thought 'This is going to be a hit. If it's not, then I don't know what people expect' - but of course it was an instant hit, and it got great reviews. It had two great big singles and that was really the beginning for us: it got the ball rolling. "
