After the huge disappointment of Joe's last 2 studio albums - I bought this out of sheer sentimentality I guess. What you get here is a mixture of standards Joe has been belting out for years and some of the newer stuff. The standards have been re-worked nicely. Joe is in mighty form - hits that impossible note at the end of "You are so beautiful" and we get the trademark roar on "With a little Help" and "Summer in the City". The band (most of whom have been with Joe a long long time) are excellent. The big and pleasant surprise is how much better the newer songs from Hard Knocks and Fire It Up sound - with much better musical ideas from Nick Milo than Serletic's excesses. The final track " You Don't Know" even though it retains the most ridiculous and unnecessary chord changes is a thing of beauty. Don't worry that you probably have numerous versions of much of this set - its definitely worth buying. Somewhere Joe says this is the first (official) live album in 23 years - if you go back to Joe Cocker Live which Joe is referring to you'll find quite a few songs have survived from that era - and some weren't even new then - but what the hell !
