I remember going to see that movie when young and walking around the city.
Never heard of him before I saw the movie. It made me a believer. I was a
Joe Cocker fan from that day forth. I bought all his albums and saw him
perform several times.
One other lasting impression of that movie was the "greasy piano" of Leon
Russell. Joe Cocker always had a good piano player. He said he needed it
to play off of. He would interact with that piano directly when performing.
Two totally different instruments harmonizing.
I always was interested in the Beatles response to him covering their songs.
A bunch of stuff is coming out about that I did not know. They appreciated
what he did for their songs. Any songwriter would have been proud to have
Joe Cocker interpret their music in his unique style. It was a super
compliment. They would call him up and make suggestions for songs of theirs
for him to sing.
I listen to classical music and have what to some would be a large
collection of classical cds, lps and tapes. However, I have only *one*
album that isn't classical and that is "Mad Dogs & Englishmen". I play
it about once every 2 years.
