Info for Last Testament
There are very few classic rock vocalists that you recognize after singing just a few notes. One of these is the voice of the former front man of Scottish rockers Nazareth: the legendary Dan McCafferty.
After nearly fifty years of road work with the band Dan had to retire due to health reasons. However, that unique instrument, his voice, is still capable of blowing the roof off.
With fifteen tracks “Last Testament” is a blistering album with a full mix of lyrical and musical styles. There are out rockers, “My Baby” and “Bring It On Back” for example but at the core of this release is a new found freedom to explore avenues of creativity.
There are songs of reflection like, “You And Me”, “Looking Back” and the very emotional first single “Tell Me” plus “Sunshine” (guest vocal by Nazareth band mate Pete Agnew), which are tender love songs.
Dan was teaming up with Czech composer, accordion and keyboard maestro Karel Marik who is the author of all music and music producer of album, Dan has written all the lyrics.
Recorded and mixed at Substation Studio in Rosyth Scotland by sound engineer Duncan Aitken and mastered by Eike Freese at Chameleon Studios Hamburg, “Last Testament” is a unique outstanding album which will surprise, challenge and delight his countless fans throughout the world.
This gritty vocalist gained early experience as a member of the Shadettes, a mid-60s beat group based in Dunfermline, Scotland. By 1968, the act had evolved into Nazareth, which grew from provincial origins into a leading international attraction. McCafferty’s throaty rasp was an integral part of the unit’s best-known hits, notably ‘Broken Down Angel’ and ‘This Flight Tonight’ (both 1973), but he undertook a concurrent solo project in 1975. Dan McCafferty comprised several of the artist’s favourite songs, including ‘Out Of Time’, which broached the UK Top 50 as a single. The singer then resumed his commitment to the parent group, but re-embarked on an independent career in 1987 with Into The Ring. (AllMusicGuide)
