Joe Cocker - The Making of Hard Knocks

Biography

Sheffield-born Joe Cocker rose to prominence in the 60s as he utilised his gritty vocals to cover popular songs including the Beatles classic "With a Little Help from My Friends" which reached number one in the UK in 1968.
After joining his brother's skiffle group on stage at the age of 12 Joe set up his first band The Cavaliers while still at school. A year on, and upon ... Read more in Amazon's Joe Cocker Store

Call me an old-fashioned trouser burp if you like, but good time rock 'n roll doesn't get much better than this! J.C.'s voice has never sounded sharper. The music is live, raw, tight as a scuba suit and Leon Russell's piano style pulls the whole glorious sound together. Stand out tracks are
"Feelin' Alright" , "Delta Lady" and "Space Captain". This concert captures the mood (and then some) of the late 60's, early 70's, it really does!

Gathering together many excellent muscians in only a few days, they cheery-picked many of the classic songs of the late sixties/early seventies - Beatles, Stones, Leon Russel and so on - and then turned them inside out. The wonderful, unique arrangements are perfect for Cockers British blues' voice - never better - and the American Soul which infuses each rhythm - toe tapping compulsary. Listen and enjoy the sheer delight of a band having fun and emotional power of popular music at its peak.

Quite possibly the best live rock album ever recorded, although there's bags of soul, blues and perhaps a tiny smattering of jazz in there too. The album's quality is all the more remarkable when you read the stories about the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour, it is frankly surprising they even made it onto stage each night, and this recording should have been an sonic disaster; but out of the chaos came something truly wonderful to behold.
Cocker is best known as a singer, not a writer, some say this as a criticism, but who cares when he sings great songs such as these as well as he does. Cocker has a monumentally fantastic voice and is one of a select few people who can take a well known song and give it an worthwhile individual twist.
Stand out tracks for me are a truly fantastic rendition of 'Cry me a river', the keyboards, horns and assembled backing vocals raise it up beyond a mere song to a real event, ditto for 'The Letter' and 'Space Captain' all three songs featuring some fantastic piano and keyboards from Leon Russell, the man who holds this whole album together (Joe, if legend is to be believed was barely holding himself together!). The tracks are busy, there's always plenty going on in the background, there is a terrific depth of backing vocals and supporting musicians, not least the superb horns section. The whole album gives a wonderfully chaotic impression of a big group of talented musicians just having a whale of a time. The band sound informal but still tight, with Joe's voice dominating the proceedings and Leon's piano guiding it all along, everyone just sounds like they are having a great time and it becomes kind of infectious. If you've never heard it, it's time you shared it. This album is forty years old, plenty of live albums have been recorded in that time, few even come close to this; it is a masterpiece.

Famous contractual obligation story notwithstanding, this shows what musicians can do under pressure. With Leon Russell's excellent orchestration (and some good songs too) the "crew" bang out one of the best live gigs on record - EVER.
Cocker's voice is superb of course and the whole thing is just nicely the wrong side of polished.
Great Stuff

Over the years live albums have come and gone in and out of favour, but this consistently stands head and shoulders above them all. Joe is at his best and somehow Leon Russell pulled together the best collection of early 70s musos to back him up in the most solid fashion apparently with almost no rehearsal! Blues, Soul, Rock, Beatles - they're all there and boy does the band swing like a good 'un. Leon Russell's guitar is beautifully judged, as are the arrangements, and Chris Stainton's piano playing is a revelation.

The Mad Dogs came together quickly and dispersed just as fast - almost like a concert flashmob. Just shows that great performances don't necessarily need to be polished and auto-tuned to within an inch of their lives. We're so lucky that it got captured so faithfully on tape with all the rich ambience of the huge band on stage as well as the audience vibe. There really isn't a bad track on the album (except maybe Rita Coolidge's 'Superstar'). This recording has all the immediacy of what it must have been like to be there. (Unlike the DVD which is awful - avoid at all costs!)

I never tire of playing it and if you like Joe, Leon and the blues, you won't either.

It's been many years since I've listened to this (on vinyl) but nothing has changed. Incredible live music and atmosphere - and totally barking... I saw the original MD & E film at Brighton's News Theatre, oh, so long ago, and was knocked out then. It's a live-recording masterpiece...simple as that.

News of the sad death of Joe Cocker made me search through my CDs to listen to some back catalogue and re-acquaint myself with one of the best ever live albums. This was one of my favourites when it first came out and was a first class indication of the art of live singing with Cocker's aggressive brand of soul sining showing just why he has been so revered over the years.

This is a powerful album with some wonderful moments - not the least of which is his upbeat version of Leonard Cohen's Bird on the Wire.

Sheffield seems to have generated some top class singers over the years (Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley also spring to mind). Cocker was the first from the steel city and arguably the best and this album illustrates exactly why.
