    Both are among my favorites musicwise. I don't see many talking about them, and alot don't even know who they are. It's because of my mom and dad that I got into Jim Croce and Dr Hook.

    I think Jim Croce was a great singer/songwriter, and could have reached greater heights if he hadn't of died. Operator, I Got a Name, Time in a Bottle, and New York's Not My Home are among my favorite songs.

    I think Dr Hook was a great country rock and pop band. I've listened to them as long as I can remember. I even remember my mom and dad playing LP records of them when I was real little. My favorite Dr Hook songs are Sylvia's Mother, Queen of the Silver Dollar, A Couple More Years, Sharing the Night Together, Carry Me Carrie, and of course The Cover of the Rolling Stone.

    So who else likes these guys?

    Don't forget Dr. Hook's "Freakin' at the Freakers' Ball".

    I've been a fan of Jim Croce since the early 70s. One of the first LPs I ever purchased was You Don't Mess Around With Jim - ABC Records (1972)

    As far as favorite songs go, here are a few of them -

    I'll Have To Say I Love You In A Song
    Tomorrow's Going To Be A Brighter Day
    Roller Derby Queen

    What struck me about Croce was how natural his stage presence was, at least in the various venues on television that I saw him on in the '70s prior to his death in 1973. ( The Tonight Show, a PBS special, The Midnight Special (If I recall correctly) , etc. ) It's a pity that he died at such a young age.

    [​IMG] Like ibid jeff, merci beaucoup too! I think I'll get the DVD.

    Surely Dr. Hook has a devious plan to get back on the cover of the Rolling Stone? I wonder where he ended up?
