The Fool Circle = Papersleeve = (CD)
"We recorded The Fool Circle at about the time that the Russians invaded Afghanistan, and it felt as if World War III was about to erupt. It all felt very weird at the time, and there are a quite a few references to the situation. It's the closest thing we've ever done to a concept album," says Nazareth frontman Dan McCafferty about their 1981 LP. Despite this sense of unease, Nazareth weren't about to stop having fun or abandon their feel good sound, which hit a peak on their previous album, Malice In Wonderland (SALVOCD043). A major contributor to the laid-back grooves on Malice... was producer Jeff Baxter and he returned to produce the follow-up, dubbed The Fool Circle as a criticism of man's treatment of his fellow man. This idea was encapsulated by the album cover, which depicts a racehorse morphing into a dolphin. "The idea," explains McCafferty, "was that we'd end up going back to the sea if we weren't careful!" Just as he'd done with Malice In Wonderland, Baxter gave Nazareth's new songs a mellow sheen that suited them perfectly. As bassist Pete Agnew recalls, "There were a lot of different sounds on that LP. The 'Jeff Baxter albums' come up an awful lot in conversation with our fans because there are some really good songs on them." Not least the European single Dressed To Kill. The half a dozen bonus tracks include the monumental 'Crazy' (the Naz sound at its heaviest and most exciting), which was contributed to the soundtrack to the cult animated film Heavy Metal, and the double live EP from 1980 in its unedited entirety for the first time.
