Small faults at back from gluing in an album

The autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Joe Cocker is one of rock and roll’s enduring performers who has survived the sixties, a low period in the seventies, made a comeback in the eighties, and continues to be a solid and consistent performer in the nineties. His gutsy, gravely, vocal style and unique stage presence make him one of the most dynamic singers in the music industry.

His first great hit was his version of the Beatles song With a Little Help From My Friends”. This album featured guest performers Jimmy Page, Steve Winwood and Matthew Fischer. it became a major highlight of the Woodstock Festival in 1969, and surpasses the original recording by the Beatles. After touring the states, he recorded the album, Joe Cocker!, produced by Leon Russell and Denny Cordell.

His Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour produced an album and a movie detailing the zaniness and the circus-like atmosphere of the forty three person entourage. After this endeavor, Cocker was physically exhausted, emotionally drained, and in trouble legally and financially. He went into seclusion, traveling in his van around England, making an attempt to find himself again.
