Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show: Sloppy Seconds (CBS)

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 17 February 1973

NOW DON'T get me wrong. I ain't no weenybop, but I have to admit that I really dig this Dr. Hook album here. Hell, I even liked 'Sylvia's Mother' and we all know what a pile of garbage that was. The thing is that this album is such fun that it just melted me down into a stoned heap of gurgling merriment.
