Kaleidoscope of Sound: U

Bill said, "Joe Cocker was a true professional. His vocals and the arrangements of his songs were amazing. It is especially nice to hear a live recording that has the quality of a studio recording."

  3. Your knowledge is extensive, you keep reminding me of artists i haven't heard in a while and introducing me to new ones. It's been forever since i've heard this song.

  4. Nice installment! My favorite of his is "You Can Leave Your Hat On" which I own on the "9 1/2 Weeks" soundtrack. ~grin~ Be well, both of you!

  5. When I saw Joe Cocker, I thought you were going to go with Up Where We Belong, that is one of my favorites. I like all his music though.

  6. As he got older, he became more of a singer and less of a shouter. Maybe he had such a good voice later in life because he did all the shouting earlier. In any case, he's always been a favorite of mine.

    1. Bill said, "I agree. I think as he matured, he focused on quality more. With age, he mellowed, like a fine wine. He got better."
