Fantastic Singer, Great Songs, Wrong Band
Joan May | CA USA | 02/22/1999
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Joe Cocker was having a difficult time getting a record contract during the early 80's, and that may be the reason he was forced to use Chris Blackwell's studio musicians instead of his fantastic touring band at the time -- including the late great B.J. Wlson (of Procol Harum) on drums and incredible guitarist Cliff Goodwin. I've heard Live tapes of most of the songs on this album, and they put the recorded versions to shame. Ruby Lee, especially, boasts one of the greatest guitar solos (by Goodwin) that I've ever heard. The cold, mechanical sounding rhythm section and uninteresting instrumental work on this album are the reasons for the lack of excitement. I hope Joe Cocker will listen again to the Live versions of these songs, realize their great value, and have them released on CD someday. In the meantime, this wonderful band can only be heard on one CD -- "Live in New York," thankfully available here at"
Excellent stuff

"A turnaround in Cocker's career. Definitely worthwhile checking out. While some may find it polished, the style is never too slick, but tightly controlled and right on the mark. Special mention for the excellent Sly and Robbie rythm tandem. Get it!"
