Whatever the style of the song, Joe Cocker delivers his adaptions with relentless spirit and professionalism. This brilliant collection of blues, ballads, and rock 'n roll explodes in 5.1 Digital Surround - transforming each unique presentation into a whole new music experience. Grammy Award winning artist Joe Cocker has been making hit records since the 1960's, and Night Calls is no exception. Cocker continues his tradition of doing powerful reditions of popular songs, but putting a little more soul & spirit in his versions. Clapton's "Can't Find My Way Home", Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me", and the Beatles' "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" all get the treatment. The stunning 5.1 mix creates more room for Cocker's heartfelt vocals. 5.1
