Dr Hook. Timeless is a 40 track collection of chart hits, love songs and lesser known gems from the band s extensive repertoire, hand-picked by Dennis Locorriere, Dr Hook s lead singer and guitarist.
'Timeless 'showcases the many musical styles of Dr Hook. Across two CDs, the collection features some of Dr Hook s most cherished love songs including the No. 1 smash When You re In Love With A Beautiful Woman , plus Sexy Eyes , Better Love Next Time , Sharing The Night Together and If Not You , as well as classic crowd-pleasers such as Cover Of Rolling Stone and The Millionaire . Two additional live tracks have also been included on CD2, Stoned and I Missed It and Ooh-Poo-Pah-Doo , highlighting the incredible live performances which Dr Hook was renowned for.
The band formed as Dr Hook & The Medicine Show in 1968, and enjoyed great commercial success during the 1970s including the classic love song When You re In Love With A Beautiful Woman , which remained at the top of the UK charts for three weeks. Shortening their name to Dr Hook in 1975 after signing with Capitol Records, the band continued to release hit singles over the next four years. Regularly appearing on both pop and country charts in the US, Dr Hook s versatile musical output won them generations of fans who connected with their simple themes of life and love: their timeless sound cementing their place in music history.
Talking about Timeless , Dennis Locorriere said: None of us could have known at the time that what we were creating was destined to stand the proverbial test of time. There were many sides to Dr Hook... Some people may remember, maybe even prefer one side or the other. I m proud of this collection because it touches on all the facets of Dr Hook s music and is the first release to accomplish that.
One that all the family will enjoy, Timeless is an opportunity for Dr Hook fans and music fans alike to broaden and add to their own record collections.
