Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen can easily lay claim to be the greatest concert recording of all time.
This 9-minute ball-tearing rendition of With a Little Help From My Friends – done as an encore – is a testament to that.
This isn’t the greatest recording visual representation but it will hopefully motivate you to listen to the recording – or revisit its greatness.
Cocker is a powerhouse and Leon Russell, ditching the piano for the guitar, is an inspiring presence among the mayhem.
Just listen to Cocker’s wail at 4.22. Your throat will cry in solidarity.
