At the end of 1973, Cocker returned to the studio to record a new album, I Can Stand A Little Rain. The album, released in August 1974, was number 11 on the US charts and one single, a cover of Billy Preston‘s You Are So Beautiful, reached the number 5 slot. Despite positive reviews for the album, Cocker struggled with live performances, largely due to his problems with alcohol.

In January 1975, he released a second album that had been recorded at the same time as I Can Stand a Little RainJamaica Say You Will. To promote his new album, Cocker embarked on another tour of Australia, made possible by the country’s new Labor government. In late 1975, he contributed vocals on a number of the tracks on Bo Diddley‘s The 20th Anniversary of Rock ‘n’ Roll all-star album. He also recorded a new album in a Kingston, Jamaica studio, Stingray. However, record sales were disappointing; the album reached only number 70 on the US charts.
