Nazareth's Game Plan: Fight It Out Until It's Right

Wesley Strick, Circus, 14 February 1977

IN GERMANY, their rock-hard rendition of Joni Mitchell's 'This Flight Tonight' won an award for chart longevity. On their recent 13-date cross-Canadian tour, they played to 100,000 and grossed $625,000. In Edmonton, they were presented with their total of 45 gold and platinum records. One of rock's hardest-driving, longest-gigging groups, these four Scots boast that they can drink any American band under the table.
