NAZARETH - Rock N Roll Telephone - Deluxe 2-CD Digipak
The Scots’ first album since 2011 will probably be the last to feature the gritty vocals of singer-extraordinaire Dan McCafferty, who has now decided to leave the band for health reasons.
Since 1968 Dan McCafferty, Pete Agnew and their bandmates have rocked stages world-wide, sold over 30 million albums, and – together with bands like Deep Purple or Uriah Heep – were a driving force in the history of hard rock.
The brand new album contains 11 tracks which the band recorded in their ‘spiritual home’ in Dunfermline, Scotland. The album opens with two storming rockers, ‘Boom Bang Bang’ and ‘One Set Of Bones’, and also contains two great rock ballads in the band’s own inimitable style: ‘Winter Sunlight’ and ‘The Right Time’. The remaining tracks deliver what their loyal fan base loves – some of the finest hard rock tracks the band has produced in many years. The album closes with a track some may recognize from last winter: ‘God Of The Mountain’ (the offical team song of the Austria Ski Team 2013).
"When we began working on R&R Telephone we had no idea that it might be Dan’s last album with the band, so to have this record turn out so fantastically well has been a real delight. The band had not recorded a full album in Scotland for many a year, and to do so in a studio close to our ‘spiritual home’ of Dunfermline felt really great. There was a wonderful atmosphere in the studio during the sessions, and we think that this shows in the performances.
This is an album that will remain in our hearts and minds for a long time. Enjoy!”
- Nazareth, February 2014
