Delta Lady

I'm a latecomer to the discovery of Joe Cocker, but can't get enough of this song:

Agree 3,000 percent (Obama math). This tune stays on repeat.

I found your blog via Big Hollywood, specifically the comment you left on Leo Grin's series on Fleming and Bond. Very glad to have found your words and thoughts; enjoying the "tribute" to Walter Cronkite quite a bit.

Thanks for the good brain, and good humor.

We saw Joe Cocker in concert maybe 7 years ago? He opened for Tina Turner...who was a total trip herself.
He was fabulous.

Good old Joe Cocker... my personal fave is "You Can Leave Your Hat On".

Holy cannolis! Joe C AND Tina Turner?

You could die happy after that!

Going to see Van Morrison for Mother's Day. That oughta be nice, too.

Well that ought to help you find your muse... love, love, love Joe. Have you heard "The Jealous Kind"? Morrison for Mother's Day sounds outstanding. My very favorite concert ever was with James the Elder (son) - we went to see Tom Petty in G'ville at the UF arena. They were recording that night and James bought me the DVD when it came out and gave it to me for Christmas with a note about how it was his favorite concert ever because we got to see it together... sniff. He made his mama cry with that one.

Oh, Betsy! What a wonderful story! As for Van the Man, we are going with our son and his wife to this concert. Good music transcends the fads.

BTW, Joe Cocker's newer stuff is still pretty good. Doesn't have that hurly-burly of his younger days, but lacks nothing in the soulful delivery.

Van Morrison is appearing at the pavilion where we all reside. Tickets are STEEP! Enjoy that concert! Take notes!And do a moondance!

If I had had to perform 5 minutes of what Tina Turner did for 2 hours I'd be posting from the beyond. Srsly. She's bionic or something.

Seeing Van? oh, heaven, indeed.

I saw Van Morrison in Atlanta 21 years ago, great show. The only bad thing is that he keeps such tight control over his stuff that it's hard to find good clips on YouTube. If you have a chance to see his smokin' cover of "Caravan" from The Last Waltz movie, download that sucker pronto!
