Bathroom Bandits

She Came In Through the Bathroom Window (A&M, 1970)
(from Mad Dogs & Englishmen)

Joe Cocker has one of those voices that makes you wish you could sing. Cocker is always rough and tumble enough for the gentlemen's taste while remaining seductive for the ladies. This song is one of the best known from his Mad Dogs & Englishmen album, and likely everyone has heard the other famous version of the tune as well. School is starting up for me and the music listening has been going back to old favorites that bring back pleasant memories of summer, winter, fall...anything that temporarily takes the mind off of academia. This post isn't about the background, just about the sound. Listen, enjoy, and buy. However, maybe hold off on buying an album or two for a few weeks and help out all the folks that are in need in New Orleans.
