NAZARETH - RAMPANT

NAZARETH

RAMPANT

1LP
GF
Nazareth's second '74 album Rampant finds the group tempering the four-on-the-floor Hard Rock attack they developed on Loud and Proud by working a surprising and effective Southern rock edge into the songs. The end result is an album that sounds like a "early AC/DC meets Lynyrd Skynyrd at their hardest rocking". 
  • 180 gram audiophile vinyl
  • Gatefold sleeve
  • Bonus Track : "Down" (b-side of 'Love Hurts' single)

Nazareth's second '74  album Rampant finds the group tempering the four-on-the-floor Hard Rock attack they developed on Loud and Proud by working a surprising and effective Southern rock edge into the songs. The end result is an album that sounds like a "early AC/DC meets Lynyrd Skynyrd at their hardest rocking".

Some of the Country-tinged highlights include "Glad When You're Gone" a funny kiss-off to an unwanted lover that airs hillbilly-styled singing with wah-wah-drenched guitar riffs, and "Jet Lag" a tongue-in-cheek look at life as a touring rock & roller that is driven by some. However, the finest song in this vein is the powerful opener "Silver Dollar Forger" which feels like the theme song to the great 1970s car chase movie that never was.

This gatefold sleeved edition of the album contains the B-side to the "Love Hurts" 7" single as a bonus. Rock on!
