Joe Cocker is an album released by Joe Cocker in 1972. It was issued in the U.S. on A&M Records. It contains the hit single "High Time We Went", that was released in the summer of 1971.
Although A&M has so far never made the album available on CD in the U.S., it licensed the recording to UK-imprint Cube Records, which issued the album on CD (with a different cover and titled Something to Say) in Europe; that CD is currently out-of-print.
The last of Cocker's classic early period records, it's an almost surprisingly strong affair. The amazing thing is that this time Joe wrote most of the material himself - in collaboration with Stainton and others, but still, this is a really independent record, and thus an absolute anomaly in the Cocker canon. Even more amazing, these songs are mostly good. This is also a good album for those who like their Cocker more rockin': lots of fast, upbeat, punchy grooves on here, and a solid enough amount of packed energy.
