Pulling Into Nazareth

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, March 1976

IT'S ALMOST schizophrenic. On the one side there's Nazareth the loud, flashy, hard-rocking boogie band. That's more or less their reputation in England, where they've toured indefatigably up and down the country, laying them in the aisles just like proletarian stalwarts Status Quo and other high-decibel low-originality outfits.

Total word count of piece: 1954
