Forty records were released by Cocker in a career. Produced May 20, 1944 in Sheffield, England where he resided until his early 20’s, Joe’s career took off well after he performed “Help” at the famous first Woodstock Festival in August 1969.

40 records were released by among the very most prolific musicians of his age, Cocker over his 50 year career. Then he chose his melody to Woodstock in 1969, and it afterwards became the theme song for the precious family sitcom “The Wonder Years.”

Cocker’s hits also contained top tunes like “Everybody Hurts” and “Ain’t No Sunshine.” In 1983, Cocker performed a duet for the film, An Officer and A Gentleman, which won Grammy and hit number 1 to the Billboard Hot 100.
