Dr. Hook And The Medicine Show - Songs


Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show (renamed Dr. Hook in 1975) is a veteran pop/rock band that became famous during the 1970s and early 1980s. They began as a country/soft rock act with a comedic flair, and by the late 1970s, they had also incorporated disco into their unique sound. Best known for the Shel Silverstein-penned country rock novelty smash, "The Cover Of 'Rolling Stone'" (1972), other top hits include "Sylvia's Mother" (1972), "Only Sixteen" (1976), "Sharing The Night Together" (1978), "When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman" (1979), and "Sexy Eyes" (1980).

Formed in 1968 in Union City, New Jersey, key members included co-founders George Cummings (b. 1938), Billy Francis, and Ray Sawyer (a.k.a. "Dr. Hook", February 1, 1937 - December 31, 2018) who served as lead singer through the late 1970s before stepping back as a backing vocalist behind Dennis Locorriere, occasionally playing other instruments. After scoring a hit with "The Cover Of 'Rolling Stone'" in late 1972, the band was featured on the cover of the famed magazine's March 29, 1973 issue. Ray Sawyer went solo in 1983, and the band continued to tour and record actively to the present day, with many personnel changes over the years.
