It doesn't matter that Joe Cocker covers other peoples tunes. The fact that most of the songs on this album are cover versions does not discredit it at all. When Joe Cocker covers a song, he makes it his own. Take the title track, in no way, besides the lyrical content, is this song similar to Ringo Starr's version on SGT Pepper. The thing that makes this album great, is that it takes songs that everyone knows (Just Like A Woman, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, Bye Bye Blackbird) and puts a completely different edge to them. If you need convincing of the greatness of this album, listen to "I Shall Be Released", which is a Bob Dylan number, and in my opinion, the best Bob Dylan cover I have ever heard. (Yes, better than "All Along The Watchtower" by Hendrix and "Mr Tambourine Man" by The Byrds). The album was largely overlooked at the time of its release, despite containing the UK #1 single, but be assured that, as far as 60s rock goes, it doesn't usually get a lot better than this! Even the lesser known tunes such as "Sandpaper Cadillac" and "Change In Louise" are fantastic. The album is a sort of Ray Charles meets Janis Joplin. Powerful, bluesy and sophisticated.

Without doubt one of the greatest albums ever made. Few albums sum up quite so well, how far rock had come during the sixties and how great it can be both technically and emotionally. There are 8 great tracks on here and two disposable covers (Feeling Alright - the original Traffic versions in far better and Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood). I would love to hear a version of With a Little Help without the accursed fiddling with the volume controls on the mixer - if such a thing exists. Cocker - Stainton was one of the great teams in music at the time. Possibly the greatest vocals ever on any album. The next album Joe Cocker! is very similar, not quite so awesome but still essential.

I know its hard to work up enthusiasm for an album of cover versions but this is that rare thing, a set of covers that work as new compositions. His singing is awesome, to use a devalued word properly for once.

for me this was a blast from the past I've been meaning to update from vinyl for ages. Its a favourite old blues/ rock album from a great singer with a great sounding gravel voice and hes also from my home town....Also, some of his band went to my old school, which really makes it a nostalgic kind of album. So if you want a slice of a time when things seemed much simpler and straight forward in music terms and what i call honest down to earth stuff this is a great album. I suppose everyone has some kind of music and performer that brings back certain memories and times in their life though!!
