Nazareth - Hair of the Dog

Heart breaker, soul shaker
I've been told about you
Steamroller, midnight stroller
What they've been saying must be true


Red hot mama
Velvet charmer
Times come to pay your dues


Now you're messin with a
A son of a bitch
Now you're messin with a son of a bitch
Now you're messin with a
A son of a bitch
Now you're messin with a son of a bitch

Talkin jivey, poison ivy
You aint gonna cling to me
Man taker, born faker
I aint so blind I can't see



Pipes solo

Hair of the Dog was the sixth studio album by the Scottish rock band Nazareth, released in 1975. It was released on A&M Records. The album was recorded at Escape Studios, in Kent, United Kingdom and is the band's biggest selling album to date, having sold two million copies worldwide. After three albums with Deep Purple's Roger Glover producing, Manny Charlton stepped into that position, one he filled for several subsequent albums. It was Nazareth's first big hit album (aside from the minor success of Razamanaz), including classics such as "Love Hurts" (on the US version, but not the Canadian/European, it replaced the original "Guilty"), "Hair of the Dog", "Beggar's Day" and "Please Don't Judas Me". The album title is often considered to be from a shortened form of the phrase describing a folk hangover cure, (The Hair of the dog that bit you). However, according to Dan McCafferty, the title is a play on "heir of the dog", ie. a "son of a bitch". This was the title the band had intended for the album, but the label didn't approve. The title track is sometimes mistakenly called "Son of a Bitch" because of its chorus ("now you're messin' with a son of a bitch"). The remastered compact disc, first released in the mid-1990s, features bonus tracks.
