10022014 - Dr. Hook "Sloppy Seconds"
This is a band where I am familiar with the hits, but have never heard a full album. And I imagine that goes for most of you people as well. Of course, the song "The Cover of 'Rolling Stone'" got quite a renaissance after being featured in the most excellent movie "Almost Famous", and wanting to hear that song I decided to check out the rest of the record. As expected, the album has a bunch of happy country rockin' tunes, some sentimental stuff and a vibe that tells you the band have had fun in the studio, something the lyrics also reveal with their fair share of (sometimes fairly filthy) humor. Pleasant enough, in an early Smokie kind of way, completely harmless and just a little bit bland.
