"Joe Cocker "Live In LA" was recorded in 1972 and released in 1976. This was Joe's first tour since his famous Maddogs and Englishmen extravaganza. Although the tour received lukewarm reviews, this cd captures some of the raw rock and blues power that Cocker is famous for. His take on "Early In The Morning" is nothing short of thunderous. Some old favorites are here to enjoy like "Midnight Rider", High Time We Went" and "Hitchcock Railway". Riding on the success of the Maddogs tour Joe was now playing larger venues like Madison Square Garden in front of 20,000 people and the crowds responded and had fun regardless of what the critics were saying at the time. Joe gets ample support from the Chris Stainton[keyboards], Alan Spenner and Neil Hubbard[bass and lead guitar], Jim Keltner and Jim karstein[drums], Jim Horn, Jim Price and Bobby Keys[horns] and Felix Falcon[percussion]. His blusey version of the Stephen Stills classic "Love The One You're With" is a real treat and the best cover of that tune ever made. This is seventies classic rock at it's best. How can the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame continue to exclude this legend and vote in the Ramones? Go figure?"
