CD Reviews

One of Joe's BEST!
Joan May | CA USA | 07/13/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a Hot Live show by what I consider Joe's Best lineup Ever -- 1979-84 -- with the late great B.J. Wilson (of Procol Harum) on Drums and excellent guitar work by Cliff Goodwin. B.J. Wilson played on Joe's first hit -"With a Little Help From My Friends" - and in fact was credited by Joe with Saving that session after 35 unsuccessful takes with Jim Capaldi! There's a great rendition of that song on this CD, as well as other hits -- The Letter, and You Are So Beautiful; the latter includes a Gorgeous guitar solo by Goodwin.Here's hoping for More LIVE releases from this Joe's Greatest Band!"
Avoid this import.

"Joe Cocker sings better today[2003], then he did back in the late seventies or early eighties when this album was recorded. This cd is no better than his other live retro release from the same period "Standing Here". The fact is that Joe was still on the mend from years of self abuse and it shows in the quality of his voice. He sounds terribly strained to say the least. If you buy this cd, you should compare it to his live cd "Joe Cocker Live" from 1990 on Capital records, and listen to the difference for yourself. I can see why this is only available as an import? This live document, should never have been released period. Although the band backing him is adequate, they do not come close to matching his Chris Stainton led band on the 1990 live cd. I consider any executive who okayed the release of this cd to have committed musical malpractice. Joe Cocker deserves better!"
