This is NOT a good recording
I like Joe Cocker's music, but the music is poorly served here. This CD's sound is brittle and harsh and, on some tracks, it actually hurts your ears. The record company continues to multiply its profits by reissuing the same music, over and over--while taking no care for how the music sounds. I don't know what generation of source tape they used for this CD, but it's of poor quality indeed. Oh, the sound is "clear" enough, but it's brittle and harsh, and the instruments (e.g., percussion and piano) merely RESEMBLE their natural sound--all of which renders the music far less enjoyable. I'd like to finally have a quality Joe Cocker recording. Had I known how bad the sound of this CD is, I would have saved my money. And if the rest of you refuse to buy it, maybe the record company will finally see an incentive to make the effort to issue a good-quality recording--finally.
