The Grease Band came to the attention of Denny Cordell, the producer of Procol Harum, the Moody Blues and Georgie Fame.Cocker recorded the single "Marjorine" without the Grease Band for Cordell in a London studio.The single made the Top Ten on the UK Singles Chart, remaining there for thirteen weeks and eventually reaching number one, on 9 November 1968.He was a lovely northern lad who I loved a lot and, like many people, I loved his singing.Cocker was not related to fellow Sheffield-born musician Jarvis Cocker, despite a rumour to this effect (particularly in Australia, where Jarvis Cocker's father, the radio presenter Mac Cocker, allowed listeners to believe that he was Cocker's brother).In 1964, Cocker signed a recording contract as a solo act with Decca and released his first single, a cover of the Beatles' "I'll Cry Instead" (with Big Jim Sullivan and Jimmy Page playing guitars).After minor success in the United States with the single "Marjorine", Cocker entered the big time with a groundbreaking rearrangement of "With a Little Help from My Friends," another Beatles cover, which, many years later, was used as the opening theme for The Wonder Years.

Cocker's main musical influences growing up were Ray Charles and Lonnie Donegan.Impressed by his cover of "With a Little Help from My Friends," Paul Mc Cartney and George Harrison allowed Cocker to use their songs "She Came In Through the Bathroom Window" and "Something" for the album.Recorded during a break in touring in the spring and summer, the album reached number 11 on the US charts and garnered a second UK hit with the Leon Russell song, "Delta Lady".Despite extensive promotion from Decca lauding his youth and working-class roots, the record was a flop and his recording contract with Decca lapsed at the end of 1964.After Cocker recorded the single, he dropped his stage name and formed a new group, Joe Cocker's Blues Band.Cocker's album With a Little Help from My Friends was released soon after their arrival and made number 35 on the American charts, eventually going gold.
