Nazareth: This Flight Tonight

When I bought Joni Mitchell's album Blue I was surprised to find that I already knew one of the tracks.

Nazareth, a Scottish band who were heavy but not too heavy to alarm the charts, had a hit with This Flight Tonight in 1973.

I remember it as being less upfront than this, but maybe reception on Radio Luxembourg wasn't so good.

The band's vocalist was Dan McCafferty, while their lead guitarist Manny Charlton once walked to Market Harborough to further his career.
