In 1970, the members of Nazareth - Dan McCafferty, Pete Agnew, Manny Charlton and Darrell Sweet - were persuaded to quit their day jobs in Scotland and move to London. As bassist Agnew recalls: "We thought 'Well, let's give it a year and see how it goes. It might be quite exciting.'" Within three years, they had become one of the foremost rock bands in the UK on the back of the album Razamanaz (SALVOCD031), but prior to this breakthrough, they had produced two very different long LPs, their eponymous 1971 debut and Exercises released the following year. Salvo is delighted to present both albums, newly remastered, on one disc for the first time.
