We have wanted to feature Nazareth on Bear Music for some time but all the videos we could find are either very poor quality or covered in logos and/or adverts. So we decided to take a leaf out of The Old Grey Whistle Test (OGWT). On the OGWT if the band they wanted to feature were not available they used to make a video of a track with an old cartoon or Fred Astaire dancing – see what you think of our effort.
No Mean City was the tenth studio album by the Scottish band Nazareth, released in 1979. The album title comes from the 1935 novel No Mean City and features artwork illustrated by Rodney Matthews (above). With this record the band’s sound became much heavier, thanks to the addition of guitarist Zal Cleminson from the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. It sold very well at the time, with the main single Star, preceded by Whatever You Want Babe. The popularity of the album allowed the band to play with several big names such as Thin Lizzy, on their 1978/79 tour.
One of our favourites…
Don’t forget, if you have any music videos you would like us to feature in the future, drop us a line. We are always happy to listen to requests from others, we cannot promise to feature any but we will try our best to find the videos if we think others will enjoy.
