THE GREASE BAND: JOE COCKER and CHRIS STAINTON
Agreement between A&M Records and the musicians to receive payment for their album Mad Dogs and Englishmen
Contract signed: "Joe Cocker", "Chris Stainton", 3 pages, 8½x11. Hollywood, California, 1970 August 25. Contract stating that A&M Records is to pay Joe Cocker, Chris Stanton, Denny Cordell, and Leon Russell a combined total of $37,440.24 for the record: Mad Dogs and Englishmen. 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. CHRIS STAINTON (b. 1944) is a English musician associated with a number of popular artists and groups including Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, The Who, B.B. King, The Alarm, and many more. In 1959, Stainton began his professional music career playing in a local band entitled Johnny Tempest and the Mariners. Years later, in 1966, Stainton joined Joe Cocker in The Grease Band, which spelled out Stainton's recognition as a musician. During his time with The Grease Band Stainton served as a co-writer to Joe Cocker as well as a backing musician, until 1972 when his initial involvement with the band came to an end. Seven years later, in 1979, Stainton began a professional relationship with Eric Clapton, one that continues to this day. In the late 1980s, he teamed back up with Joe Cocker to go on tour. His most recent work includes being featured as a pianist on The Who's 2012 album Quadrophenia, as well as being the keyboardist for the 2012-2013 Quadrophenia & More Tour. Normal mailing folds. Multiple staple holes at top margins. Holes punched at top margin on one page. Bottom edges notched and worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
