This movie is about Joe Cocker's 1970 U.S. tour which began in Detroit and ended in San Bernardino California. The bulk of the film is concert footage with studies of backstage life, life on the road, and a brief interview with a hard-core groupie. Joe Cocker is also a featured performer in the movie of the concert Woodstock, which came out at about the same time as this movie. His hoarse singing style, especially in rock ballads, closely resembles that of Rod Stewart, but his curious spastic gestures and un-selfconscious earnestness as a performer are uniquely his own.
