AllMusic Review by

Before the advent of MTV in the '80s, there was only one way rock bands hit the big time--through non-stop, hardcore touring. Nazareth was one of the '70s top road warriors, and 1998's double disc set LIVE AT THE BEEB proves it. Recorded during the band's many in-concert appearances on Britain's BBC Radio from 1972 through 1977, LIVE AT THE BEEB captures Nazareth at the height of its popularity and heavy metal powers.

In addition to featuring many Nazareth standards, LIVE AT THE BEEB features several songs that never found their way onto albums, such as "Paper Sun" and an album-closing cover of Frank Zappa's "Road Ladies." Also included are such fan favorites as "Hair of the Dog," "Called Her Name," "Hard Living," and "Expect No Mercy."
