Mad Dogs And Englishmen Tu 13 July 2.15
A filmed record of Joe Cocker's 1970 tour of America with his group, Mad Dogs and Englishmen.
This film is a fine example of the cinema-verite style, in which we see the characters on stage and on the road as they make their tour.
Joe Cockers genius is exploited to the full and the same goes for Leon Russell who sometimes, not unexpectedly, outshines the number one star. Russell is the composer arranger, guitarist pianist of the group.
A beautiful slice of 1970s rock-blues.
