Comprehensive Alhtough CD 1 Is Much Better

  • Dec 31, 2009
Rating:
+4
Joe Cocker was one stylish blues oriented singer. Whereas song-writing was not his strength, he could certainly give certain songs a bluesy arrangement that was completely unmistakable.

The First CD would probably rate five stars or certainly four and one half. Loaded with his first #1 UK Smash With A Litte Help From My Friends. What a rendetion people. The Wonder Years certainly had the good sense to use this as the featured song for their sitcom. Covers of Feeling Alright, Something, Honkey Tonk Women, The Letter, She Came In Through The Bathroom Window are simple unforgettable in everyway. You also have to love his rendetion of Delta Lady, Space Cowboy, Hitchcock Railway and Lets Go Get Stoned. There's barely a weak song on this side. Just Like A Woman is a little slow but still has many merits. I'll Cry Instead strangely does not vary much from the original but is still passable.

The second CD is a bit spotty. The first three songs are very strong and upbeat especially High Time We Went. Great keyboard and guitar interplay on that one. After that the songs are very hit and miss. Most of the tuens are slow ballads without a good song structure. More easy listening pop that edgy blues which i more suitable for Cocker's style. The final song, Up Where We Belong is a deent ending but too much dead space in between. Therefore, the overall four star grade is justified.
