Whatever the style of the song, Joe Cocker delivers his adaptions with relentless spirit and professionalism. This brilliant collection of blues, ballads, and rock 'n roll explodes in 5.1 Digital Surround - transforming each unique presentation into a whole new music experience. Grammy® Award winning artist Joe Cocker has been making hit records since the 1960's, and Night Calls is no exception. Cocker continues his tradition of doing powerful reditions of popular songs, but putting a little more soul & spirit in his versions. Clapton's "Can't Find My Way Home", Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me", and the Beatles' "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" all get the treatment. The stunning 5.1 mix creates more room for Cocker's heartfelt vocals. 5.1 Producer: David Tickle 5.1 Mixed By: David Tickle

"I guess my title can ahve a double meaning. First of all, Joe Cocker offers varying adaptations of blues, ballads, and rock n roll. Secondly, Joe covers artists from Prince to Elton John to Gary Wright and boy does he put some oomph into Love Is Alive. Got to love those background vocals on that track. Whatever the style of the song, Joe delivers his adaptation with the upmost spirit and professionalism. On the Beatles, You've Got To Hide Your Love Away, Joe makes this song his own changing the arrangements to suit his own style. Feels Like Forever and When A Woman Cries are two more standouts which show case Mr. Cocker at his most passionate. Maybe not quite an all time classic but it sure rates a winner to my ears."
Joe shines on this platinum seller.

"Joe Cocker's first studio release of the 90's proves to be an enjoyable listen. "Night Calls" sold over 2 million copies in Germany alone upon it's release. The cd opens with the Bryan Adams tune "Feels Like Forever" which is a fantastic ballad that would have been a monster hit if radio stations in the U.S would have given it some airtime? It's so true that Joe can make a song his own. The majority of his covers usually outshine the originals. Wait till you hear his takes on "Can't Find My Way Home" and "Love Is Alive". They blow the original versions away by Steve Winwood and Gary Wright. The title track has a little ELO overtone thanks to a great production job by Jeff Lynne. Joe also lends his vocal chords to a fantastic gospel feel remake of the Beatles "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" complete with a church like chorus. Joe is like fine wine that keeps getting better with age. The most disticntive growl in rock n roll never sounded better."

"Joe Cocker has one of the most distinctive gravelly voices in R & B history. He's always stuck to his roots and never gone with temporary fads or novelties. This collection is another classic with great covers from the Beatles, Elton John and Gary Wright. His interpretive voice has always been the focal point of his songs, but in DTS 5.1, you are surrounded (as if in concert) by his presence. The completely adept and intuitive musicians that accompany him add more atmosphere without taking from his performance. Imagine hearing him in live in a theater and you'll know what to expect from this warm and heartfelt album."
