Love Hurts, But This Nazareth Box Looks Painless

with 2 comments

Madness isn’t the only artist getting a career box set from Salvo Music this year. The U.K. label is affording the same treatment to Scottish rockers Nazareth.

While the band had only fleeting chart success in either the U.K. or the U.S. (enjoying early success at home with Top 10 hits “Broken Down Angel” and “Bad Bad Boy,” as well as high-charting tunes like their rocking takes on Joni Mitchell’s “This Flight Tonight” and Tomorrow’s “My White Bicycle,” and having one brief Top 10 in the U.S. with the Boudleaux Bryant ballad “Love Hurts” (originally performed by no less than The Everly Brothers!), their fan base is still strong (owing in part to Salvo’s lengthy reissue campaign in recent times). The band still tours and even records, releasing an album earlier this year.

Now comes news of a new box set for Nazareth, The Naz Box, coming this fall. The four-disc set features two discs of singles, album cuts and B-sides across the band’s entire career alongside two discs of live tracks recorded by the BBC (while the source of these tracks have not been determined, they have likely seen release on other archival titles or as bonus tracks on the Salvo reissues) and, most exciting for fans, nine unreleased demos and outtakes.

The Naz Box¬†is out September 19 and can be ordered on Amazon U.K. here. Have a look at the track list after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
