Who would ever have thought that Joe Cocker would still be recording and touring 35 years after the release of "Mad Dogs and Englishmen. This 35th anniversary edition DVD has one big advantage over the original release, and that is superior sound and picture quality. This film captures the frenzy and energy of one of the greatest rock tours ever. Cocker and a 43 member entourage stormed across America for several weeks, playing to packed houses and rave reviews. Although this event nearly ruined Joe Cocker, it never the less captures a young Joe Cocker in his wired prime, belting out such favorites as "The Letter", "Feelin Alright", "Delta Lady", "Space Captain", "With A Little Help From My Friends", "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", "Honkey Tonk Woman", and a heartfelt rendition of George Harrison's "Something", just to name a few. This film captures a hippie commune circus with back stage footage, interviews etc. To music fans today, this will seem somewhat dated, but to us baby-boomers, this was cutting edge rock music of the times, when we had a proliferation of AOR radio playing this music everyday. I highly recommend this Dvd to all classic rock fans, as well as the companion 35th anniversary cd, which is loaded with 10 bonus tracks, which has now displaced the original recording as obsolete. Hopefully, the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame will wake up, and realize that COCKER POWER is alive and well, and induct this deserving rock legend.

I didn't know what to expect from this DVD; the reviews have been mixed at best. I was half expecting this to be an essential part of my collection, watched once then placed on a stack of DVD's that I would point at, impressing others with the completeness of my collection. I had heard the sound was bad (compared to the Concert for Bangladesh) and that it was horribly dated. I was then pleasantly surprised to find that the sound if not excellent, was very good, and the overall quality of the DVD was just a fraction below the aforementioned Concert for Bangladesh at half the price. Fans of Joe Cocker should consider this essential, and those who just like a wild, raw, show should consider this as well.

In 1970, Joe Cocker's Maddogs and Englishmen was one of the biggest rock n roll events of the year. This rockumentary of that tour, is a time capsule not to be missed. Cocker, along with a forty piece band, which included Leon Russell, Chris Stainton, and Rita Coolidge, stormed across America in 2 1/2 months, playing to packed houses and rave reviews. The movie was made in the same format as Woodstock, utilizing split screen visual techniques. Cocker is caught in his absolute young prime belting out tunes like the "Letter", "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Space Captain", Feelin Alright, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" and "Delta Lady" just to name a few. The tour from a personal point of view, was a diaster for Joe Cocker. The tour entourage was too big to support playing 3000 seat venues. Joe and Leon Russell were not getting along by midway into the tour, and it is quite obvious in the film that Cocker was becoming very withdrawn from it all. One can see all the hanger ons who were there for a free ride sponging off of a young Joe Cocker who could not say no to any of them. That put aside, this rock film captures the frenzy, of one of the most exciting tours in rock history. This dvd picture and sound quality is good but not spectacular. Keep in mind this was filmed over 30 years ago, so this is as good as it gets from that era. Joe Cocker continues to make music and tour at the age of 60, the same cannot be said for many people who were with him during that time period. After watching this film, you will understand why Joe Cocker is truly a rock n roll survivor.

Gotta love the incredible energy onstage, the well-rehearsed songs, the fun behind -the-scenes footage. A true slice of life on the road conveyance; could almost smell the patchouli oil through the speakers.

But - two serious but's - I swear that the theatrical release and the VHS release both had a sweet scene of everyone saying goodbye to each other at the end, providing a nice closure to the whole experience. That's not on the DVD. AND - is there a lawyer in the house? - the jacket does list "Bird on a Wire" but I didn't see it on the DVD.

Hey A&M - we do need a better version on this with ALL the footage and accurate documentation and there must be some way to clean up the
old film footage and make it better-looking for today's modern screens!

I was keen to see this film in its newly re-issued format but was horrified with the sound quality. So many rock doco's of the past have been beautifully remastered (eg Concert for Bangladesh, Elvis - Thats the way it is, to name just two) and yet this opportunity to blast what was a spectacular musical journey right into the new millennium fails to deliver.

The CD soundtrack gets it right (sort of) but the DVD is poor and there can surely be no excuses. I feel for Joe Cocker because this event whether he enjoyed the experience or not captured him at his peak and this re-issue should have been a modernised legacy of what a great showman he was in his prime.

I put this on expecting my surround sound to fill the room with this great music but regrettably it simply doesnt have the spark.

Buy it for novelty value but dont expect the Space Captain to fill your room with a wall of sound.
