Joe Cocker Mad Dog With Soul DVD/Blu Ray
Eagle Rock Entertainment are delighted to announce the release of “Mad Dog With Soul” by Joe Cocker on DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Formats [Cat Nos. EREDV1282, ERBRD5325, and EVD1397 respectively] on 23 June 2017. This feature length documentary is the very first programme to tell the complete story of the late Joe Cocker’s life and career. “Mad Dog With Soul” is fully supported by Joe Cocker’s wife and family and will be broadcast on Sky Arts in the UK. This release will offer, as Bonus Features, over half an hour of additional interviews not included in the broadcast version.
“Mad Dog With Soul” portrays the turbulent life and extraordinary talent of the late soul and blues singer Joe Cocker. A former gas fitter from Sheffield, Joe Cocker was catapulted to world stardom in 1969 at Woodstock with his legendary performance of “A Little Help From My Friends”. His subsequent 1970 “Mad Dogs and Englishmen” tour of America is now seen as a milestone in rock history. However, as his stardom increased and the pressures mounted, Joe Cocker’s inner demons took him on a path of self-destruction that he was fortunate to survive.
Through archive interviews with Cocker himself and contributions from his family, friends, and the legendary songwriters and musicians he collaborated with, alongside electric live performance footage from across his career, “Mad Dog With Soul” documents how Joe overcame his struggles with alcohol and drugs to rebuild his reputation as one of rock ‘n’ roll’s all-time great vocalists.
A revealing and honest documentary that captures the real Joe Cocker, “Mad Dog With Soul” tells the compelling story of a true British music legend.
