After Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show
During the 1970s, Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show was a group that enjoyed some success. The band consisted of members who had been in a Southern trio called the Chocolate Papers. Their music was largely country, but they also played some rock and disco.
Initially, the band played at rough bars in the Union City area. They were encouraged by musician Ron Haffkine, who was a musical director for a film called Who Is Harry Kellerman? They recorded demos and sought a more hospitable environment. They were unable to meet the high expectations generated by Sloppy Seconds.
After a short hiatus, Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show released the self-titled debut album in 1971. It was a hit in the United Kingdom, where it went to number 14 and stayed in the top 25 for four weeks. They also recorded several songs written by Shel Silverstein.
