December 17 – Joe Cocker – With a Little Help from My Friends

CockerThe funny thing is, when I put this CD on recently I thought the Joe Cocker I had on cassette tape, which I had exercised to last May was so much better than this. It starts off great but quickly dives down. Don’t get me wrong, I love Joe Cocker’s soulful voice, he is a great singer. And great to watch perform. A songwriter, not so much. So of course I had to look for the tape to refresh my memory, and found that, sure ‘nuf, it’s the same album. But I don’t remember – how did I feel about it eight months and numerous albums ago? Happy to say, I wrote just about the same thing. I’m not fickle. And I will agree with myself further to say that I still need to get more Joe Cocker. Just not this one.

Btw – impressive friends on this record with the likes of Jimmy Page and Stevie Winwood.
