Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 12 October 1968

"WITH A Little Help From Our Friends" Lennon and McCartney, 23-year-old Sheffield born, Joe Cocker makes a welcome appearance in our charts this week with his interpretation of the. Beatles song that has had DJs and journalists (count me in) raving about him for weeks. Last week Joe was knocked out to receive a telegram reading: THANKS YOU ARE FAR TOO MUCH and signed JOHN AND PAUL.
