More info

I try not to reference my disappointment of RYM in my reviews, but.....geez, there's less than 100 of us who own Nazareth's Greatest? A band so cool as to cover both Joni Mitchell and Tomorrow. Even Tomorrow's debut has well over twice the owners as this.
I assumed that at one time in the seventies that this album was prerequisite for every red-blooded, handlebar mustachioed party guy in the Great Rock Universe. The kind of dudes who found the thought of  buying a copy of Boston or Hotel California, as appealing as summer school. I assumed that all vinyl copies of Nazareth's Greatest Hits would be stained from ring marks from beer bottles and that the angelic album cover had been used collectively, to roll more grass than all of Scotland. I assumed that more than a few dozen of us would have stumbled upon this cut of no frills rock majesty. I assumed incorrectly.
Sorry RYM, I'm not trying to guilt you. It's not your fault. What with your Zeppelin's and your Floyd's and your Sabbath's keeping you entertained all those years, it would of been easy to overlook The Greatest Bar Band of All-Time.
Speaking of bar bands, how come they all know how to play banal tunes like 'Mustang Sally' and 'American Woman', but never once have I heard 'Razamanaz' played. It fits the bar band formula - it's simple, it friggin' rocks, it's about partying, and it sounds like Chuck Berry and Motorhead rolled into one.
The sad truth is Nazareth are a dying breed. Rock music has been splintered down to infinite by now. We collectively share very few bands anymore and the ones who would be rocking out with Nazareth on a Saturday night, are of a demographic that shouldn't be out partying in public anyway. It's The Golden Rule of Rock: Thou shall not become old and uncool. That may explain the lack of ownership for this album. So many of us who love rock music are either dead or do not care anymore. Which leaves die-hard lovers like yours truly feeling a little lonely and alienated.
Love hurts.
