Dr. Hook: Sloppy Seconds

Charlie Gillett, Rolling Stone, 29 March 1973

IF YOU LOOK at the pictures and read the stories, you’ll have guessed that Dr. Hook is a bunch of lascivious layabouts dedicated to carrying us through to a new era of demented debauchery. Listen to the first track on this album, and you’ll know you were right. "All the fags and dikes, they boogyin’ together...freakin’ at the Freaker’s Ball."
