Few, if any singers, could sing a cover of a song and make it truly their own the way Joe Cocker did. As Paul McCartney observed regarding Cocker's version of "With a Little Help from My Friends":


"It was just mind-blowing. He totally turned the song into a soul anthem, and I was forever grateful to him for doing that."

"Relax, it's only hi-fi. There's never been a hi-fi emergency." - Roy Hall

"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." - William Bruce Cameron
