I was first introduced to Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show on a PBS special about VD. They sang a song called “Don’t Give A Dose To The One You Love Most.” What I liked about them was that they were funny and didn’t look like a regular Rock band. They looked like a bunch of hobos.
This song and all their early songs were written by Shel Silverstein. They might have made more money when they did the disco type songs but the quality of music went down. Nothing matches the wit and wisdom of a Shel Sileverstein song.
