Nazareth: Close Enough For Rock N Roll
Title: Close Enough For Rock N Roll
Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. Close Enough for Rock 'n' Roll is the seventh studio album by Scottish hard rock band Nazareth, released in 1976. The lead track, 'Telegram', is the definitive story of 1970's touring rock bands and describes the band's experience of hangovers, travel by airplane and limousine, customs, FM radio, girls, breakfast, press reception, soundcheck and finally the show over an insistent guitar riff that bursts into a short version of the Byrds hit before returning to the riff and the story. It includes the album title in the lyrics - this references a saying among guitar players: it doesn't matter if your guitar isn't fully in tune, as long as it's "close enough for rock 'n' roll".
