Sea Song of the Week: Back into the Mystic

Happy birthday Joe Cocker! Our Sea Song of the Week today is your version of Into the Mystic...

We realize this song has nothing to do with the Seaport.
Every Friday we post a nautical tune to kick off the weekend, even if you can't get out on the boat. We call it the Sea Song of the Week.

Since today is Joe Cocker's 67th birthday, we thought we'd share a performance of a nautical tune by the gritty voiced legend.

Into the Mystic
This song also caught our attention because we just spent several days in Mystic, Connecticut, for a boat show called SailQuest Mystic. We've got pictures of the historic sites and all the new tugs, sail and power boats to prove it.

Anyway, here is our Sea Song of the Week, Joe Cocker performing Into the Mystic in Berlin, circa 1997...
