Dr. Hook: Smooth rock flashback

By SCOTT CUNNINGHAM // 70's band helped define smooth

In the process of tidying up my digital music library, I came across a greatest hits compilation from Dr. Hook. Their smooth rock sounds from the 70's launched them to international stardom, bankruptcy, more stardom, and the eventual parting of ways. Hook combined several elements, including Southern Rock, soul, a bit of disco, and smooth rock to create a one-of-a-kind sound. At some point, I may do a larger retrospective of the band. For now, though, enjoy Sharing the Night Together, a track from 1978 that topped out at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
