This movie is about Joe Cocker's 1970 U.S. tour which began in Detroit and ended in San Bernardino California. The bulk of the film is concert footage with studies of backstage life, life on the road, and a brief interview with a hard-core groupie. Joe Cocker is also a featured performer in the movie of the concert Woodstock, which came out at about the same time as this movie. His hoarse singing style, especially in rock ballads, closely resembles that of Rod Stewart, but his curious spastic gestures and un-selfconscious earnestness as a performer are uniquely his own.

This is the Best Concert Footage I have ever seen filmed from the 69-72 ERA. I saw this Movie in 1970 and I believe it took 15 years to get a copy. In 1986 I ran into Bobby Keys in Lubbock, TX at Fat Dawgs were we discussed the Tour !!! I was in Rock & Roll Heaven that Day!! Bobby was there .. you will also see him in the DVD. I have a VHS .. that is why I am here .. time for the 5.1 DVD .... GET IT ... "anybody want a Tequila SunRise ? !!!" coming from a skinny sax player from Slaton, TX on a Plane with Joe Cocker, Leon Russell, and the rest of a Super Band !!!! A must DVD for your Collection !!!!

Having lived in San Francisco and Madison Wisconsin from '65-'73 I attended more concerts than I can count or remember (B.B. King's 1st ''major university'' concert, an unannounced Sunday afternoon freebie by Quicksilver, just missed Woodstock but caught the Stones at Altamont-just about every legendary band and great from James Brown to Woody Herman's Big Band ; missed the Beatles] No one, not the Dead, not Jimi Hendricks held a candle to Leon Russell and his Assylum Choir. Energy ... Excitment ... WOW! Forget Joe Cocker, this is Leon and the Choir's film once the music begins. There was no way I could've missed his concert having seen this ''movie'' in a half empty lecture hall at U.W. The acoustics were poor but it didn't matter; I knew I'd seen the best rock film to date. Until ''The Last Waltz'' ('78) there wasn't a film to compare. Buy it or rent it, this has concert footage you'll find truly amazing.

In my recent rating/review hyperbole I confused Leon's concert ensemble with an album of his:Asylum ChoirII. Before posting please substitute Shelter People for Asylum Choir. However I've never gotten Claudia Linnear's name or any thing else about her confused. I am still male & still breathing. Check out this DVD and a fairly obscure reference will make sense. Amen

I saw the movie when it came out. I've also seen Leon Russell in concert. The songs are still wonderful and memorable. Joe may be singing, but this is Leon's movie from beginning to end. Puts a smile on my face.

Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen concerts are among the best CD's you can own, but this Movie is another matter. I really wanted to like this movie but as much as they tried to imitate the Woodstock method of movie making, this documentary is a just boring. Thankfully this DVD has a feature which will allow you to skip the documentary and watch the concert footage itself but you would be better off buying the CD's of these great concerts as this movie does not do it justice. A real disappointment

I've been looking for this video for quite a while. It's a classic featuring Joe Cocker & Leon Russell. Great concert footage as well as some fun lifestyle stuff. Also radio interviews with Tom Donahue in S.F. and some geek in Iowa.. ''what do you do in the band?'' Marty Manning, 99.9 KEZ, Phx.
