Label: Golden Core
Nazareth's sixth album, released in 1975, has all the songs for which they are known for in the States. "Hair of the Dog" is second only to Mountain's "Mississippi Queen" in the pantheon of cowbell rock; "Beggars Day" is not just an overlooked hard rock classic but a Crazy Horse cover (!); and their take on Boudleaux Bryant's unmatched "Love Hurts" is either the greatest lighter-raising moment in rock history or a shameful, shameful desecration. The bad-trip creep-a-thon "Please Don't Judas Me" also made it onto the radio in the U.S. and definitely should not be missed.
