Nazareth – Close Enough For Rock 'N' Roll - 1976 -Blues Rock, Hard Rock (vinyl)

Close Enough for Rock 'n' Roll is the seventh studio album by the 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 aeroplane 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 is fully in tune, as long as it's "close enough for rock 'n' roll". Telegram (Parts 1-3 only) was Nazareth's concert opener for many years, including the 1981 shows recorded for the Snaz album and is one of their finest achievements.
