Album Review

A&M's double-disc Anthology may be too much for casual fans that just want the hits, but anyone else will find this exhaustive 37-track chronicle of Joe Cocker's prime years definitive. The first disc concentrates on his first three albums, buttressed by a rare 1964 single of the Beatles' "I'll Cry Instead" and his 1970 non-LP single "The Letter"/"Space Captain." Disc two features highlights of all the albums he recorded between 1972 and 1982, selecting not only hits, but key album tracks. The end result is a collection that is concise and definitive. It may be missing such latter day hits as "When the Night Comes" and doesn't cover as much ground as the box set Long Voyage Home, but anyone looking for a comprehensive collection of Cocker's classic recordings will be satisfied by Anthology.

Joe's "The Man"

If it hasn't been sung by Joe... It hasn't been sung! Truely a master at bringing a level of emotion unmatched to any song. I would say that Joe Cocker and James Brown would be a tough call as far as who could push a song to it's breaking emotional point. Great sense of humor too, I'll never forget seeing the Saturday Night Live performance with him and John Belushi spoofing him.


I am greatly disappointed that itunes can not have a complete album collection!! NO ORDINARY WORLD is an exceptional album by Cocker (quite possible his best!). Come on i tunes get it together, you guys are big and powerful, give us all a break!!! GET NO ORDINARY WORLD it is a wonderful Cocker album (written about 1999); you can get it at Barnes & Nobles.

60's rock

I just recently learned to appriciate the music of the 60's. I am a product of the 80's hair band generation, but I have to say there people that paved the road for rock and roll, and Joe Cocker is one of them. This is great music, and I wish I learned to enjoy it at an earlier age. Thanks to Taylor Hicks for bring this style of music back to the main streem, I only hope the next generation of rockers will learn to appriciate it at an earlier age then I did.

After starting out as an unsuccessful pop singer (working under the name Vance Arnold), Joe Cocker found his niche singing rock and soul in the pubs of England with his superb backing group, the Grease Band. He hit number one in the U.K. in November 1968 with his version of the Beatles' "A Little Help from My Friends." His career really took off after he sang that song at Woodstock in August 1969. A second British hit came with a version of Leon Russell's "Delta Lady" in the fall of 1969 (by then,...
