This was one rocking album. Released in 1975, Nazareth went straight to the top of the charts with the #1 title track, 'Hair Of The Dog'. Many people are too young to have heard this one, because I rarely hear it on the radio, and its a best value cd. I think the title song was one of the best all time party songs. This one played at my high school graduation, even though it was an oldie then.
'Miss Misery' is a song about a man in love with a woman that he can't have. It plays before the next track that describes the previous song. This song, ' Love Hurts', is the best slow dance song ever made. I believe every music loving person has heard this one. If you haven't, you are living a deprived life. I love this song. It is definately a Hall of Fame top 10 song. The success of this album is mainly attributed to the 1st and third song on this release.
'Changin' Times' comes in on the line up at #4. It's a song about chasing the woman he can't have, or at least can't control (who ever he is}. 'Beggars Day' follows this descent rock track, with a hard core vocalized hit. It must also be in the Hall of Fame list of Top hits. I liked this song from the moment I first heard it. This one starts out:"If this is heaven, then I'm in hell", and keeps a strong guitar lead throughout the scattered lyrics.
'Rose in the Heather' is a nice easy listening instrumental that preludes 'Whisky Drinkin' Woman'. This instrumental is a dancing title. 'Whiskey Drinkin' Woman' is a great follow up with a southern touch.
"Please Don't Judas me' is the last song on this clasic rock title. This is a great song that any person has probably heard in a bar. I am very pleased with this member cd that is part of my collection. This value product is one of the best oldies out there!
