Nazareth

Nazareth are a Scottish rock band that had several hard rock hits in the mid 1970s.
Nazareth was formed in December 1968 in Dunfermline, Scotland.
The band moved to London, England in 1970, and released their self-titled debut album in 1971.

Nazareth was formed out of the ashes of the semi-professional Dunfermline group The Shadettes formed in 1961 by vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton (ex Mark V and The Red Hawks), bassist Pete Agnew, and drummer Darrell Sweet. They took their name from the first line of The Band’s classic song “The Weight” (“I pulled into Nazareth / Was feelin’ about half past dead…”)

The band moved to London, England in 1970, and released their self-titled debut album in 1971. After getting some attention with their second album Exercises, released in 1972, Nazareth supported Deep Purple on tour, and issued the Roger Glover produced, Razamanaz, in early 1973. This collection spawned two UK Top Ten hits, “Broken Down Angel” and “Bad Bad Boy”. This was followed by Loud ‘N’ Proud in late 1973, which contained another hit single with a hard-rocking cover of Joni Mitchell’s song “This Flight Tonight

Perhaps their best-known hit single was a cover of the ballad "Love Hurts", in 1975.The band continues to record and tour

In February 2008, a new album was released on the Hamburg-based label Edel Entertainment entitled The Newz.
