American rock band Dr. Hook enjoyed commercial success in the 1970s with hit singles like "Sylvia's Mother"(1972), "Only Sixteen" (1975), "Sharing the Night Together" (1978), and "When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman" (1979). The music they created spanned different genres, now all brought together on this wonderful Collected 2LP.
Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show (as they were previously named) formed in the late '60s, but it took some years before they achieved commercial success. Their 1971 album Doctor Hook became a million-seller and includes their biggest hit “Sylvia's Mother”. It was the start of a highly successful period with eight years of regular chart hits, including "A Little Bit More", "Better Love Next Time", and "Sexy Eyes". It took a while after their first record before they released another high seller, but A Little Bit More was another chart hitting record. The band was known for their country-flavored pop/rock music and crazy stage performances. During the early '80s, the success went downwards and after some prominent band members left and were replaced by others the band finally gave up the ghost in 1985.
Dr. Hook Collected is available as a limited first pressing of 1500 individually numbered copies on purple vinyl.
