GREATEST (?) Hits???
. | Chicago, IL / Montreal, QC | 07/06/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Nazareth is one of my favorites since 1975 when I heard "Hair of the Dog", their 5th album. But these "greatest hits" should've called "some greatest hits, some not at all" and I would slap the hands of people who composed this stuff... to not do that again. Only one third out of 18 songs deserves to be called "greatest", others are too far from that. It looks like the compilation was assembled from whatever songs were available for the producer. This is a crappy approach which allows "novices" of Nazareth's fans to get easily disappointed. I have composed 3 (!) my own "greatest hits" CDs from Nazareth tunes... It seems the producers were not familiar with Nazareth's 30-year efforts at all. Only tunes 3, 6, 8, 11, 12, 15 and maybe 18 may present Nazareth as one of the best groups in 70's thru 90's. Sad experience..."
A Great Review of Nazareth's Career for a Great Price

"Nazareth CD's are real hit & miss efforts, so a greatest hits with all of these tunes is a great deal. Sure a few gems are always missed in these packages, but it is a good place to start a collection or replace some of those well worn albums.In the mid seventies it was interesting to watch Nazareth & Aerosmith battle it out for the bluesy hard rock crown. Both had early proto-metal ballads Naz "Love Hurts" and Aerosmith's "Dream On" boogie rockers Naz "This Flight Tonight" and Aerosmith's "Same Old Song & Dance" which evolved into rocking radio hits "Hair of the Dog" vs "Walk This Way" and ending with metal rockers "Expect No Mercy" vs "Back In The Saddle"Both bands then put out a decade of ... and both resurfaced with comeback CD's. Nazareth's "No Jive" & "Move Me" (with new life injected by the return of the younger guitarist Billy Rankin) are great CD's but did not have the financial label backing that Aerosmith's "Permanent Vacation" & "Pump" recieved. No half million dollar videos and professional song writers for Naz doomed them to a cult following, while Aerosmith is ruling the hard rock (or is it pop rock)airwaves.In retrospective I would take this Nazareth collection to the desert island rather then Aerosmiths best of! Enjoy."
One Of The First Nazareth Albums To Buy

"This GREATEST HITS album by Nazareth is excellent. Granted, there are a few tracks I wish had been replaced by others (and there are four from HAIR OF THE DOG which, if included, would have made this anthology even better), but overall, this is a terrific summation of an important 70s/early 80s hard rock band."
