Album Review

Revisited serves as a best-of collection for the pre-disco version of Dr. Hook. The set includes their two (so far) radio hits, "Sylvia's Mother" and "Cover of the Rolling Stone," accompanied by several of their comedic tunes like "Freakin' at the Freaker's Ball." Still a few years away from "A Little Bit More" and "Sharing the Night Together," the band was concentrating more on humor than love songs. ~ Michael B. Smith, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Hysterical!

And really good music. Sylvia's Mother and Queen of the Silver Dollar are as beautiful songs as they are touching stories. Cover of the Rolling Stone, Roland the Roadie and Acapulco Goldie will have you laughing your butt off. This was one of my Mom's favorite bands and I never understood the words as a child but even then I knew the music was good.

a really good album

first off what kinda person spends their time finding music that they have no buiseness listening to and leaving bad reveiws. but in all seriousness Dr. Hook and the medicine show are a really good band. BUY THIS ALBUM. and if you like it ,and you will, try BANKRUPT it is the best album they ever made.

Fantastic music from, admit it, the cultural low of the 20th century.

This music is FANTASTIC! This, too, was my mom's favorite. I was too young to understand the words when it was new, but now that I'm older, its even better. Everything from the screwball comedic stuff in the early years to the sappy love songs of the later years is masterfully executed.

Although the band had a reputation as a mouthpiece for humorist Shel Silverstein, who supplied several of their biggest hits (including "The Cover of Rolling Stone"), they didn't rely exclusively on his material by any means. And, during their peak...
