"I have tried,in my way,to be free.." Joe Cocker's first LP truly was "With A Little Help From My Friends"; heavy friends indeed! But this second helping, generously served up by guitar-piano-arranger Leon Russell was a sumptuous feast for all! They took this album's musicians and songs on the road for the awesome "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" Tour and Movie! "Joe Cocker" is an intoxicating brew of American R&B, Soul, Rock and Boogie filtered through the sand and gravel vocals of Sheffield, England's favorite son! The tunes covered here are all by top-shelf writers; British, American and Canadian! ( Dylan, Lennon+McCartney, Harrison, Cohen and Russell!) Seeing Joe Cocker "Live" is to appreciate "The Man In Full!" ( Joe Cocker and his Grease Band were the only group we saw at the original Woodstock Music & Arts Fair
in that hot August Summer of 1969!) Seeing him many times since; the man's still "got it!"
