Joe Cocker: Seven Days [1982]

I was mildly amused to see a poster advertising a Joe Cocker concert in a city I visited this summer. I hope he's retained the band that backed him up in the YouTube video below. I highly recommend watching the last 40 seconds of the song, beginning around 4:50. I hope Dylan collected his royalty check.

Buy Joe Cocker here..

Nice one. I did not ken that Joe covered this. Pleasant dry/tinny/synth textures. How's the rest of the album?

It doesn't do much for me. Seven Days is one of the harder cuts on the album. The rest of the album finds Joe Cocker indulging his penchant for 80s synth rock easy listening.
