JoeCock_TheLife_CoverAr_500DPI300RGB1000170559It’s been nearly one year ago since we’ve lost Joe Cocker. If you’re like me, some of his great songs has often been replayed in one way or another since then. Over time, you being to develop a strong realization that Joe Cocker left behind a beautiful and strong body of work.

On December 11, Hip-O Records will issue a 2CD set of collected studio and live tracks from Joe Cocker, assembling them into a nice collection being called The Life Of A Man – The Ultimate Hits (1968-2013). The two CDs covers a long stretch of a brilliant career. And, after looking over the track-list, you find that a nice representative song has not been included, well, join the club.

For myself, I love the awesome included cover of “Come Together” from Across The Universe movie. Yes, I do consider it essential. Just like “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window” and “With A Little Help From My Friends”essential. It makes The Life Of A Man feel complete.
