Joe Cocker is the third studio album by Joe Cocker, released in 1972 in Europe as Something to Say on Cube Records, and in 1973 in 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.
It's an unusual LP among Joe Cocker albums, in that he wrote the lyrics to six songs. All of them were co-written with Chris Stainton between 1969 and 1972. However, the album's main claim to fame might be the fact that one of its tracks, "Woman to Woman", was the basis for Tupac Shakur's successful hit single "California Love".
In 1998 a remastered edition of the album, re-titled Something to Say, was released worldwide on A&M Records.
