Feelin' The Blues

Mad Dogs and Englishmen is truly a recording that is brimming with passion. Although most of the songs are covers, the performance from track to track is just oh so moving. The bluesy styles are quite varied ranging from the horn infested Honkey Tonk Women to the slow blues Bird On A Wire to the haunting ballad Superstar which features a fine lead vocal by Rita Coolidge. Also the acoustic duet between Cocker and Leon Russel on Dylan's A Girl From The North Vountry is qutie touching.

The instrumental touches are quite fabulous. Leon Russel and Chris Stainton add many spirited keyboard touches. The backround vocals are oh so special too. One cannot forget the great horn playing by Bobbie Keys sand Jim Price. The fact that the Rolling Stones would use these guys on Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street speaks volumes.

Anyway, Mad Dogs and Englishmen is a true gem from start to finish.
