Post Nazareth;s Greatest Performance
on: January 23, 2013, 20:19

Hi To all Naz Fanz Newbie

Nice to see the forum back up and running, well done to the Backroom Boys. IT

Just a general Question which the boys may be able to answer and maybe some fans. In what year was the greatest performance by the band and the reasons why, as they have done so many gigs there must be one that has gone down in history from the boys. I have been to see Naz many times so I have been very lucky and every concert was outstanding :) .

I think it was the First Conzert from the No Mean City Worldtour in Glasgow Apollo Theater It was in !979 with zal as a second Guitarplayer. The German Radio Stations told this Show was unbelievable] This is in the BBC Archiv i believe Gregor Naz Rocks

Have anyone Information about a new naz Studio Album 2013

Hi Gregor. You could be right Manny did have a lot of respect for Zal. But I have a feeling it could have been when the boys cracked the USA with Alice Copper and friends but I may be wrong. Here is the link http://youtu.be/J1zNoKJYff8 Dans vocals on Loved and Lost is mind blowing at 2.21 listen to the crowd who know that this band is special. :)

Why Naz are not in the Hall of Fame just beggars believed. :(

when zal as a second Guitarplayer was in the bad nazareth where just awsome, Zal A self-taught guitarist, at the start of the 1970s he played and recorded with the Glasgow based band Tear Gas. The musicians in that band then provided the backbone for The Sensational Alex Harvey Band (SAHB). In his white-face pierrot make-up, audiences could not mistake him, or his guitar solos on stage with SAHB.

In 1979, he joined Nazareth[1] and recorded two albums with them, 1979's No Mean City and 1980's Malice in Wonderland. He was a regular guitarist with UK legend Elkie Brooks on many of her tours throughout 1980s. He also wrote and played on Brooks' album, Minutes. Cleminson has also toured and recorded with Midge Ure and Bonnie Tyler

What a pitty that the planned live-album with Zal never saw the light of day! Well have some bootlegs Naz with Zal - but that was the time Naz should have released their first live-album!

I agree!.
Imagine if they had the complete live recording made in 1980, as heard on 'Cocaine' on The Fool Circle album. Top quality sound.
Apparently this recording i lost, or stuck in some basement collecting dust.

Oh Mr T_Higginz Damm What a lost. But going back if I remember right when Snaz was released, the bloody music press went on strike which did the double album no favours at all, but billy as the second axeman was dammed good, but again let down by the UK music press so I am not sure if with ZAl, it would have made no difference but I must admit with Zal it would have been fantastic but it;s all history now . Mr higginz get digging please as a matter of urgency I am sure we can help

Klaus are you referring to Snaz ??? What a pitty that the planned live-album with Zal never saw the light of day! was that meant to be a live performance in the UK tour and Live Album

No I was not refering to "SNAZ" - I was referring to a live album that was planned to be released after "Malice in Wonderland". It would have been with Zal on guitar from the Malice in Wonderland Tour. The live track on "Fool Circle" was the only track that saw the light of day, and I remember that I once read that it is not known where the tapes where lost with all the hastles during the Mountain Records crash.

When Zal left they decided to cut a now studio album and then release a live album with the new line-up. That all happend during the time with the Mountain Records going bankrot, so I think they all had more important things to take care of in thouse days. Its a pity that Zal had left as this was a great line up. On the other hand - Zal made space for Billy Rankin to come in and he brought "Dream On" - the song that gave Nazareth a huge comeback in middle Europe ...

I remember Bravo magazin was having a two pages articel about the Naz concert in Glasgow Apollo from the opening night of the "No Mean City Tour". Would love to get that recording ... maybe an idea for a future release.

The setlist should be equal to later shows, with "No Mean City", "Just to get into it" and "May the sunshine" played from the No Mean City album. Also a track called "Wrong place, wrong time" was played on that tour, that never got released.

Hey Klaus

Wrong Time, Wrong Place is a Spooky Tooth cover, it's actually titled 'The Wrong Time'. Naz used to share a bill with Spooky Tooth back in their late 60's Kinema Ballroom days which would explain their fondness for the song.

Cheers
