    Joe Cocker
    Reviews and rates six albums, mostly early.

  • (JA) I Can Stand A Little Rain (1974) This was Cocker's last major success for a long time

  • But it's also mostly tasteful and appropriately focused on Cocker's emotive singing, with some nods to his earlier big-band R & B sound like 'Put Out The Light.' Producer Jim Price is fully in control here: he wrote the title track, co-wrote Cocker's only composition ('I Get Mad'), arranged the horn section (which included Price and ), and rounded up a huge crowd of noted session players - Ollie Brown, Merry Clayton, Cornell DuPree, Chuck Rainey, and especially Hopkins, who plays on half the tracks

    Interview of mathematical and linguistic whiz Daniel Tammet by Richard Johnson.
    Scientists are asking whether Tammet's exceptional abilities are the key to ...

  • 'Savants have usually had some kind of brain damage

  • And it's that brain damage which creates the savant

  • I think that it's possible for a perfectly normal person to have access to these abilities, so working with Daniel could be very instructive.' Scans of the brains of autistic savants suggest that the right hemisphere might be compensating for damage in the left hemisphere

  • 'But it's rare for them to be able to reflect on how they do it - let alone create a language of their own.' The ARC team has started scanning Tammet's brain to find out if there are modules (for number, for example, or for colour, or for texture) that are connected in a way that is different from most of us

  • 'The highlight of filming was to meet Kim Peek, the real-life character who inspired the film Rain Man

  • Before I watched Rain Man, I was frightened

  • Getting to meet the real-life Rain Man was inspirational.' Peek was shy and introspective, but he sat and held Tammet's hand for hours

    Samples of sijo poems by Chong Ch'ol, 16th century poet, in English translations.

  • Fine rain on the clear stream makes the night air fresh and cool

  • How is it that a man's heart changes from morning to night? Let's strain off raw rice wine and drink till our lips are shrunk; Let's simmer our bitter herbs and chew them till they taste sweet, Walk on till our thick studded clogs are worn to their wooden soles

  • In wind, rain, snow and frosts they sit there unprotected

  • Now I hear raindrops falling on lotus leaves: are they trying to match this music? _ Goosefoot: A movable bridge

  • The full leaves seem to measure them, but what will they do with them— Spattering bouncing raindrops, exhilarating and joyous? A shadow is reflected in the water; a monk is crossing the bridge

  • Monk, stay a moment; let me ask where you’re going? Pointing with his stick at the clouds, the monk passes without a backward glance Milky rain-mist on the green hills, surely you won't deceive me? Rain-cape of sedge and horsehair hat, surely you too won't deceive me? Two days ago I put off my silken clothes

  • Let's drink a cup of wine! And then drink another! Let's pluck flowers and lay them out to count off our endless cups! Once your body is dead it will be bound in a straw mat and carried away on a jiggy, or sway in a brilliant bier followed by thousands of mourners, but still it will go to the reeds and the rushes, the oaks and the willows, where the sun shines yellow and the moon shines white, where fine rain falls and snowflakes whirl in the wind: and then who will say, "Let's drink a cup!"? Some monkey will come and chatter on your grave, and what use will regrets be then? _ Jiggy: carrying frame for the back

  • 2) When I get off the train and start walking, that's when I feel that I've got the very world for my old friend

  • How do you respond to such charges, especially in light of your own experiences working in the intelligence community, and your status as a person, alive so close to the turning of a century? Also: Does rain ever make you feel rat-like? Do find incessant rain, like that which at the moment has us hiding and scurrying, defeating or oddly comforting? Lethem: I'd like to answer the first part second, and the second part first

  • The second, the question about the rain, rats, all that

  • So: the rain

  • When the rain comes I run and hide my head, I might as well be dead when the rain comes

  • Fuck me dressed in your full outdoor costume with your hat and veil on, your face flushed with the cold and wind and rain and your boots muddy, either straddling across my legs when I am sitting in a chair and riding me up and down with the frills of your drawers showing and my cock sticking up stiff in your cunt or riding me over the back of the sofa
