It's bright and bold, as hard and shiny as stainless steel, but there isn't a meanness to it: it's professional to its core, each note polished til it gleams, not one song outside of Cocker's wheelhouse. He pours his passion in, which may not be enough to liven up this buttoned-down upper-crust soul, but it is enough to keep things pleasant.

Hard Knocks Joe Cocker. Though he was often best known for his interpretation of songs by others, Cocker wrote nearly this entire album. The main exception is his rendition of The Dixie Chicks' "I Hope"; it was produced by Nashville stalwart Tony Brown, who also produced the Chicks' version. With a true R&B Hammond organ and a gospel choir backing him, Cocker sings from the pocket, laidback in the groove but still firmly in control. So It Goes" further captures the soul man on a husky soul ballad that Cocker sings alone.

It features hit singles "You Can Leave Your Hat On" and "Don't You Love Me Anymore", the first made popular after its use in the famous striptease scene in the film 9 1/2 Weeks. Released as a single, Cocker's version of the song peaked at No. 35 on Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. The album also features rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues", a Motown legend's classic lament to urban decay.

Music legend Joe Cocker has just signed a deal with 429 Records for his latest recording, ‘Hard Knocks’ which will be released in the USA on Nov. 22. The British singer songwriter with the distinctive bluesy soul voice has been around the block a few times and has sold millions of records along the way. I’ve spent probably more time on the streets than being educated, says the 66-year-old Brit. Fans who’ve been around long enough to remember me all those years ago will probably understand the album title
