A Skimpy Collection From Their Good (Early) Years

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Dr. Hook made a series of very enjoyable albums in the early 70s, mostly featuring the wild, wacky songs of Shel Silverstein. ("Cover Of The Rolling Stone", "Roland The Roadie And Gertrude The Groupie", etc.) Then, they changed. It was a terrible thing to behold, as they sold out with a string of sickly sweet sappy ballads ("When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman", "Sexy Eyes", etc.) and disco BS. Most of the Dr. Hook compilations include songs from both periods, with more from the later period, when they had more success on the charts. Frankly, I don't want any of that later stuff polluting my music collection. This is the only best-of collection that focuses exclusively on the early recordings. Unfortunately, with only 10 songs, it barely scratches the surface. I'd love to see a much more comprehensive collection of early recordings, before they sold their souls to the devil for a few top 40 hits."
Great Music, but some of their best music were not hits.

"My first 8 track tape was Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show, Belly Up where can I find it. It was their best, a real classic."
