All you need to know about Cocker is that he put out a version of "I Shall Be Released" around the same time Dylan and the Band put out their versions and it stood up. It's hard to imagine somebody putting out covers of contemporary music today and being well received.

I don't know that much about him to be honest. Which album would be a good starting point?

He has one of the most soulful and husky voices. Gotta love Joe Cocker.

The three I listed are my favorites and all from one of his distinct career periods. The consensus pick might be the live album Mad Dogs and Englishmen though.

Joe is my uncle's neighbor and good friend, so naturally the first thing I ever asked him was how he felt about Belushi's impression of him. Turns out he's not a fan, imagine that!

EDIT: and for those who don't know said impression, here's a poor youtube rip of one of them:

Glad to hear it. Always nice to find out the people whose music you've loved since childhood are people you'd like to meet.

He is on my bucket list of classic musicians I want to see in concert. I absolutely adore the sound of his voice.

His 80s stuff is forever destined to be underrated. Most people who love slick 80s sounds don't want a gruff rock singer. And most people who love singers like Cocker wouldn't be caught dead listening to anything 80s. Alas.
