Joe Cocker is the third studio album by Joe Cocker, released in 1972 in Europe as Something to Say on Cube Records, and in the USA as Joe Cocker on A&M Records. It contains the hit single "High Time We Went", that was released in the summer of 1971. Joe Cocker signalled Cocker's change of direction into a more jazzy, blues style. The album reached no. 30 in the US album charts. However, although it received a positive response from the press, it made no impression on the British and European charts.
Joe Higgs never bothered with style or genre, he simply wrote good songs. On this eclectic LP one finds excellent Reggae like "Vinyard" but also Soul like "Love Can't Be Wrong" or the title track. The sheer quality of those tracks is as impressive as are the arrangements - done by Higgs as well. I have no doubt: would Higgs have been an American, he could have been a star on Motown or Stax, at least one of their top songwriters.
Joe Higgs was born in Jamaica in 1940. He was influential in the birth of ska, rock steady and reggae music. He was an arranger, composer and performer. His album Blackman Know Thyself featured his most famous composition Stepping Razor which became a signature song for Peter Tosh but was actually written by Joe Higgs. He made the 1977 reggae documentary film Roots Rock Reggae and worked with Jimmy Cliff on Sounds of the City and Sons of Garvey. He passed away in 1999.
He talks about the track "There's A Reward" and the old-school, late 1950's duo "Higgs and Wilson.
Saturdays involved making our entrances into life outside We've been in this room too long Recreation is keeping us self contained and aware Of each other's forms Still and in full strides just the same Keeping us warm Walking in straight lines Talking to sleep at night Coddled and pacified By versions of mothers. It's all new to me It's all new to me Having you around It's all new to me It's all new to me Having you around the Higgs
Confirmation of the Higgs boson or something very much like it would constitute a rendezvous with destiny for a generation of physicists who have believed in the boson for half a century without ever seeing it. The finding affirms a grand view of a universe described by simple and elegant and symmetrical laws - but one in which everything interesting, like ourselves, results from flaws or breaks in that symmetry. Without the Higgs field, as it is known, or something like it, all elementary forms of matter would zoom around at the speed of light, flowing through our hands like moonlight. There would be neither atoms nor life. Physicists said that they would probably be studying the new particle for years.
