The Dr's Fun Prescription
Brent Evans | Rockhampton, Australia | 05/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first thing to know about the album "BANKRUPT" is that Dr Hook were bankrupt at the time.This was sort of a last ditch effort for the band; having ditched "And The Medicine Show" from their band name not long before.The funny vibe from the band's first albums is still present on BANKRUPT: witness LEVITATE,I GOT STONED(AND I MISSED IT), WUPS,EVERYBODY'S MAKING IT BIG BUT ME,THE MILLIONARE,EVERYBODY LOVES ME and DO DOWNS.Add to it the adlibs and wild laughter that are sprinkled throughout this release;I would've loved to be at the recording sessions!Adding to this is a general tightening in the music department and you have a mid seventies classic on your hands.I still love Dennis' version of ONLY SIXTEEN.Have a listen to fun Dr Hook in to era before they went "disco"."
Superlative Hook

"Ah, the days before the 70s disco atrocities, when Dr Hook were ballsy, brilliant and broke. This is a fantastic album full of humour, warmth, and rocking tunes. Don't let the Sexy Eyes syndrome get the better of you, put this on and realise what great band Dr Hook were."
MY KIND OF DOCTOR
PARK M PARKER | GROTON, CT. United States | 01/04/2003

"I first heard this album in'78 while in the ARMY in Germany. My roommate had "SLOPPY SECONDS", which I pretty much wore out on him.Eventually "I got stoned and I missed it." became one of our cadences while running P.T.(as long as the C.O. wasn't running with us) and we were the loudest outfit around because of the good Dr. I thought I'd split my sides laughing through SLOPPY 2nds, man I was rolling on the floor the first time listening to BANKRUPT!!!I wasn't straight either and that's what made it so much more hilarious. With their bantering back and forth and laughing through-out the album this has got to be the best album I have ever heard! And this is the first place I've seen it anywhere since then. I would have loved to see them live"
