In the late 1960s, there were few rockstars bigger than Joe Cocker. Topped off by a legendary performance of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends” at Woodstock, Cocker’s career was ripe to take off. Rising star Leon Russell assembled a band of LA’s top session players for a tour and subsequent live album. Known as “Mad Dogs & Englishmen”, it would become one of the great happenings in the history of rock music, catapulting both Leon and Cocker into the pinnacles of rock and roll stature.
Mad Dogs & Southerners is Atlanta’s Tribute to these two masterful musicians and to the beautifully decadent state of rock and roll in the early 1970s, before the music was antiseptically homogenized and stripped of its inherent danger and romance. Reexperience Cocker’s powerful, ‘take-no prisoners’ delivery on songs like “The Letter”, “Feelin’ Alright”, “Delta Lady”, “You Can Leave You Hat On”, “Unchain My Heart”, “You Are So Beautiful” and “Up Where We Belong”.
Featuring Gar Hogan, the lead singer of Fire Lake: A Tribute to Bob Seger, this is big and brash music, full of the self-indulgence and hedonism of the 1970s.
