4.0 out of 5 stars The first Dr.Hook's best 11 Dec 2008
By Mailian
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a compilation of the 3 albums Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show released in the early 1970s. Almost all of their tracks are Shel Silverstein compositions with witty, irreverent humoristic lyrics, folk style vocals by Ray Sawyer (Dr. Hook) and country-rock backup. Next to the wellknown Sylvia's mother and Cover of the Rolling Stone are other great tracks such as Marie Lavaux, The ballad of Lucy Jordan, Freakin' at the freakers ball, Roland the roadie... and Judy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Before They Became Simply Dr Hook 13 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
Dr Hook were initially known as Dr Hook & The Medicine Show up until 1975, but for the purpose of this review I shall simply refer to them as Dr Hook.

There are two distinct eras of the music of Dr Hook and this compilation released in 2000 covers a large part of what is to my mind their best period. (The early 1970s) Classics such as Life Ain't Easy, Roland The Roadie, Cover of The Rolling Stone, Queen of The Silver Dollar, Sylvia's Mother and my all time favorite Dr Hook song Carry Me Carrie are all here. Virtually all the songs on this release were written by the late Shel Silverstein (He of 'A Boy Named Sue' fame). As someone has already pointed out, this covers only their first three albums under CBS / Sony, so a few tracks such as I Got Stoned & I Missed It / A Couple More Years & Everybody's Makin' It Big But Me are missing. However this does not take away from the overall package. The general feel of this compilation is of country rock with more than a little bit of humor thrown in. The vocals of Denis Lacorriere (main vocalist) are superb showing emotion especially on Carry Me Carrie , Sylvia's Mother and Ballad of Lucy Jordan to name three. Of the 24 songs on offer here at least two that I am aware of have been covered by other artists. The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan famously by Marianne Faithful, and here in Ireland The Queen Of The Silver Dollar was given the Irish Country treatment (Never a great move but at least it was a nod in the right direction).

Very much an essential cog within country rock history and a band that deserves much more recognition than they get for their contribution to early 70s music. If you have always found their output of the 1980s to be lightweight pop, then I urge you to have a listen to this collection. It might even change your mind about the relevance of Dr Hook within the development of country rock, but it will surprise you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mix 6 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Excellent combination of better known and classic older songs. I would recommend this to anyone as an example of both the passionate heartfelt material alongside the anarchic songs which epitomize Dr Hook

5.0 out of 5 stars The Coasters meet Gary Paxton 22 Nov 2013
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Until 1970 country music got short shrift from rock critics but few artists if any took notice.
Ray Sawyer for instance cut 2 singles for the Gulf Coast label SANDY in the early 60s before forming the Chocolate Papers to play country music and R & B as Shel Silverstein drew cartoons and wrote songs for Johnny Cash with a strong emphasis on comedy
That's what's on here but note that this is the earliest edition of Dr Hook.
