Joe Cocker - Woman To Woman.mp3

Cocker deserves a lot of credit for his gravelley, soulful, and distinctive singing - his phrasing and stage antics were lifted straight from Ray Charles, but he always managed to put his own stamp on the proceedings. Furthermore, he was closely tied in to the late-60's British rock scene, and during that period he brought together a lot of its best elements to produce a few fine records. Mad Dogs And Englishmen is probably the most famous, but this is far more concise and crafted. Despite the use of female choruses and a much more commercial approach, here Cocker is pleasantly close to Janis Joplin's late, boogie-woogie sound. The track leads off with a funky piano riff, gently introducing the Jazz orchestra, then enter his unique howling vocals generating a pulsating energy that envelops your entire body. When I hear this I get transformed into somekind of demented hyenia like creature sent into a demonic rage sounding blood curdling screams trying to relaese the beast within. You will probably recognise the main riff in this track as it sampled by Tupac on his hit single Califonia. This album also includes some first rate covers like "Feeling Alright" that puts Traffic's original (click to download _4Mb) to shame, and who can forget The Beatles cover a Little Help From My Friends.
