British blues and rock star Joe Cocker (1944-2014) first gained fame singing rock and soul in English pubs with his group, the Grease Band. He had his first No. 1 hit in Britain in 1968 with "A Little Help from My Friends", and found success in the U.S. after his appearance at the Woodstock festival in 1969. The following year, his cover of the Box Tops' hit, "The Letter" became his first U.S. No. 1 hit, and he reached the peak of his success that year with his "Mad Dogs & Englishmen" tour, which featured Cocker and over 40 other artists. Cocker returned to the U.S. Top 10 in 1975 with "You Are So Beautiful" (included on this album), and he had a No. 1 hit with "Up Where We Belong", the theme song from the 1982 film, An Officer and a Gentlemen, which he sang with Jennifer Warnes. Cocker, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song for "When a Woman Loves a Man" from the 1988 film, Bull Durham, has been heard singing in several other films, including The Bodyguard, Benny & Joon, Sleepless in Seattle, Carlito's Way and The Love Letter. He has also appeared on a number of TV shows, including a notable 1975 appearance on Saturday Night Live, performing a duet with John Belushi, who skillfully imitated Cocker.
