With a Little Help from My Friends is the debut album by singer Joe Cocker, released in 1969. It was certified gold in the US and peaked at number 35 on the Billboard 200. In the UK, the album charted in May 1972 at number 29 when it was re-released as a double pack with Cocker's second LP Joe Cocker!.

Joe Cocker's debut album holds up extraordinarily well across four decades, the singer's performance bolstered by some very sharp playing, not only by his established Chris Stainton, but also some top-notch session musicians, among them drummer Clem Cattini, Steve Winwood on organ, and guitarists Jimmy Page and Albert Lee, all sitting in. It's Cocker's voice, a soulful rasp of an instrument backed up by Madeline Bell, Sunny Weetman and Rossetta Hightower that carries this album and makes "Change in Louise," "Feeling Alright," ". .

But what kicks this album off is a rendition of Traffic's "Feelin' Alright" in which Cocker reinvented in his own right and became a live classic as well as the title track  . I had this album years ago, a great classic, but there are only two songs I really dig, Little Help From my Friends and Feeling Alright.

One of the most artful albums of the era. Every cover Joe did here, he either equaled or surpassed. This album makes the argument for Joe being the greatest white soul singer. Every track is orgeous and heartfelt.

I just revisited this great record on a nice drive in my old Buick , it is just fabulous music- the title cover actually rivals the Beatles because it is hard to believe that the song should be done any other way than Cockers' way , now that's remarkable in itself. The other covers are all consistently good and have his signature sound- a true staple of his time that really became timeless.

As close to perfection that an album of this era can get. An astonishing accomplishment. Every song still holds up; the arrangements and musicianship are inconceivably compelling. And who did those amazing arrangements? I would guess that Joe and Chris Stainton (his almost lifetime sidekick) did it themselves----they wrote three of the songs on this record, and those arrangements fit harmoniously with the covers; Cocker, known almost exclusively for covering songs subsequent to this album, contributed heavily to this effort). I will never forget the time and place I first heard this, in 1969. The guy that came up the steps and into the room that night also held Led Zeppelin's first album in his hands. Five of us gathered 'round and listened to these two records, We knew greatness, felt deep awe and infinite appreciation.
