A "Must-have" for Dr. Hook/Shel Silverst

by J.R. on 3/17/2009

Ready to bridge the gap between soft rock and outrageous garage band music? This is a must-have collection for Dr Hook and Shel Silverstein fans. From the radio hits of yesterday that had teenagers swooning over their love songs, to wild & crazy music that would never make it on the air because of the controversial lyrics... Dr. Hook gives substance and meaning to the story-lyrics created by the musical genius, Shel Silverstein. Read More

Album Notes and Credits
This two-CD set is a repackaged anthology reissue of American rock act Dr. Hook. The compilation has 40 tracks that feature Dr. Hook's greatest hits, including "Sylvia's Mother," "The Cover of Rolling Stone," "Sharing the Night Together," "Sexy Eyes," "A Little Bit More," and "Only Sixteen."
Personnel: Dennis Locorriere, Ray Sawyer (vocals, guitar); George Cummings (guitar); Billy Francis (keyboards); John Wolters (drums).
This 40-song assortment will definitely appease those who want a hefty one-stop of Dr. Hook's best material, but it also makes for a worthy summation of the band's career. All but the last two of Dr. Hook's Top 40 singles appear here, led by "Sylvia's Mother," "The Cover of the Rolling Stone," and "Only Sixteen," while excluding later efforts like "Girls Can Get It" and "Baby Makes Her Blue Jeans Talk." All of their second-bests are also present, including fan favorites such as "More Like the Movies," "The Radio," "Jungle to the Zoo," and "On the Way to the Bottom." Their absurd lean toward rock & roll throughout the '70s is well-covered in songs like "I Got Stoned and I Missed It," "Bad Eye Bill," "You Make My Pants Want to Get Up And Dance," "Walk Right In," and "Wups," while their mawkish brand of sugary-sweet love songs which they're known for surfaces in tracks such as "I Gave Her Comfort," "She's Not There," and "If Not You," as well as in the hits "A Little Bit More" and "Sexy Eyes." Since most of Dr. Hook's albums brandished only a couple of hits each, Collection makes for one of the best routes to gather all of their essentials, but it may seem to be overabundant for those who just want the charted hits and nothing more. ~ Mike DeGagne
