Our Review

Joe Cocker's punching harder these days than he was several decades ago, when he moved from raw soul man to polished balladeer. "Unforgiven" still evokes memories of Cocker's sentimental side, with keyboards that recall his '80s work, while "Runaway Train" goes for '80s funk. But on the title track, "Get On," and "The Fall," he comes out swinging in vintage style, playing into the role of the aged singer who's down but not out. Though he was often best known for his interpretation of songs by others, Cocker wrote nearly this entire album. The main exception is his rendition of The Dixie Chicks' "I Hope"; it was produced by Nashville stalwart Tony Brown, who also produced the Chicks' version. With a true R&B Hammond organ and a gospel choir backing him, Cocker sings from the pocket, laidback in the groove but still firmly in control. "So It Goes" further captures the soul man on a husky soul ballad that Cocker sings alone.

Amazing album from one of our classic musician!

"AMAZING" (5 stars)
So wonderful to hear from a man that is certainly one of Rocks Classic Voices. Joe has not ever come up short in his delivery of heart and soul expressions or in his wrting. Joe Cocker will always be a man whose voice will capture the truth of his heat and soul expression through his music. This is certainly another excellent production to add to Joe's legacy of incrediable recordings and hits....God Bless you Joe Cocker!

After starting out as an unsuccessful pop singer (working under the name Vance Arnold), Joe Cocker found his niche singing rock and soul in the pubs of England with his superb backing group, the Grease Band. He hit number one in the U.K. in November 1968 with his version of the Beatles' "A Little Help from My Friends." His career really took off after he sang that song at the Woodstock festival in August 1969. A second British hit came with a version of Leon Russell's "Delta Lady" in the fall of...
