Product Description


Calling something "The Ultimate Collection" is fraught with problems -- usually of omission. Certainly over these two discs -- containing a total of 30 tracks -- there are plenty of fine moments from some of Joe Cocker's earliest material, such as "The Letter," "With a Little Help From My Friends," "Delta Lady," "She Came In Through the Bathroom Window," etc. Also present are virtually all of his later hits and some that should have been: "Up Where We Belong," "You Are So Beautiful," "Many Rivers to Cross," "Leave Your Hat On," etc. But there's just too much that isn't here. Where are "Bird on a Wire" and "Hitchcock Railway," for starters? Nonetheless, given the length of Cocker's career, this is not an unusual complaint. One thing that is unique about this set -- other than the fine sound -- is the sequencing that crisscrosses over the breadth and chronology of Cocker's discography. There are also a couple of rarities, which would have been OK to leave off in order to include some of the more classic titles. But this is quibbling; Cocker fans will have a good time with this, but it's a safe bet they won't be selling off their original albums/CDs to replace them with this. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide -- All Music

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY 21 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Finally, at long last, an anthology of Joe Cocker's best that has "meat" and a lot less "sugar" on it. JC at his best, surely the way he'd want to be pictured/listened to, not the recent "greatest hits" collections. This is the one you can really count on. Go and get it... NOW! You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Easy Listening 14 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am not and never was a big Cocker follower but you can't deny that the guy knows how to sing a good song well. This is an enjoyable album full of variety. As a bonus, if you're an old fogey like me, you'll also recognise some of the memorable Cocker numbers from the 70s. This is a good value CD if you're looking for mature music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every hit you would ever want to hear from Joe 11 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Joe Cocker has a unique and timeless rock voice that I have loved for 35 years. This compilation covers all of his best songs and the recording quality is very good. Having heard a couple of 'budget' CD's in the past it was refreshing to be able to listen to my favourite Joe Cocker tracks in reasonably high quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old oldies 16 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
Heard this CD whilst visiting a friend in the south of France in October. We were having dinner and it was playing in the backgroud. I became transfixed with listening to the music rather than the conversation and decided I must have a copy! Brilliant.

Great to be taken back to the growly tones of JC. Seen in concert in Ipswich years ago and this bought back great memories.
