Mad Dogs And Englishmen is Joe Cocker's legendary live album, recorded in 1970 at the Fillmore East. For this record Joe Cocker created a unique sound: a veritable definition of big-band rock with three dozen players working behind the singer.

Mad Dogs And Englishmen consists mostly of covers, drawing equally from rock (The Rolling Stones, Traffic, Bob Dylan, The Beatles) and soul (Ray Charles, Sam and Dave, Otis Redding), and is as much a showcase for arranger & bandleader Leon Russell as it is for Joe Cocker.

As we now know the tour from which this album was drawn took a heavy toll on Joe Cocker – and especially his vocal chords – because the music was presented on such a grand scale. Nevertheless, the music still stands to this date and beyond.

In the pantheon of classic live albums as well as concert films, Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs & Englishmen is near the very top, alongside Woodstock and The Last Waltz in defining the spirit of a generation. The tour, album and film catapulted Joe Cocker, Leon Russell and Rita Coolidge to superstardom.

The tour rolled across America, from Detroit to New York to California, from March-May 1970. With Cocker in his prime, driven by a phenomenal band; ringmaster Leon Russell; three drummers; a horn section; and 10-strong choir - the tour was one of the greatest and most colorful in history.

The repertoire of the craziest, loudest, longest rock 'n' roll circus to have ever hit America includes legendary performances of "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window," "The Letter," "Feelin' Alright," "Delta Lady," "Bird On A Wire," "Cry Me A River," "Let's Go Get Stoned" and "Space Captain." And over years later, the excitement of Mad Dogs & Englishmen remains!
