    Personnel: Joe Cocker (vocals); Chris Stainton, Leon Russell (guitar, piano, organ); Henry McCullough (guitar); Alan Spenner (bass guitar); Paul Humphries, Bruce Rowland (drums).
    Still riding high on the American success of his debut album and show-stopping appearance at the Woodstock festival, Joe Cocker hastily recorded a follow-up with his Grease Band and guest musicians. Remarkably, it sustained the quality of his debut, with Cocker barnstorming his way through Russell's instant classic "Delta Lady," "Hitchcock Railway," and a reworking of songs by Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles.
    As on WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS, it is the more restrained material that revealed most about Cocker's interpretative talents; sensitive readings of Cohen's "Bird On A Wire" and John Sebastian's "Darlin' Be Home Soon" are particularly impressive. But thanks to the dense, chunky production by Leon Russell, the rockers satisfy as well, making JOE COCKER! one of Cocker's best and a precursor to the popular pub rock of the '70s.

    Rolling Stone (2/21/70, p.50) - "Joe Cocker's delightful second album is ample proof that the imagination that transformed a song so fixed in our minds as 'With A Little Help From My Friends' has not run out of things to do, nor fallen into the trap of 'stylization'..."
    Q (7/00, p.130) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Just as tasty [as his debut], cementing his US standing....Reappraisal is long overdue. Now remastered, here's the ideal opportunity."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.80) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The set's standouts include a bluesy, raucous cover of The Beatles' 'She Came In Through The Bathroom Window' and a powerful, gospel-infused take on George Harrison's ballad, 'Something'..."
