Because in that relatively brief period of time, the session musician moved front and center in American pop music and began adding a level of craftsmanship and even brilliance to even the most insignificant pop tune.  And as a result, there reached a point in the ‘60s, seemingly overnight, when many bands and artists that could play their own instruments were no longer allowed to.  Session players, many of whom saw themselves as little more than tradesmen, were being called on the play the songs, while the recording artists whose name appeared on the label were only being asked to sing them.

The Prestige 10000 Series commenced in 1971 when the label was sold to Fantasy Records and the label was moved to San Francisco California [3]

A retrospective review from Allmusic's Bruce Eder was fairly positive. Eder stated that the album "holds up extraordinarily well across four decades, the singer's performance bolstered by some very sharp playing, [...] It's Cocker's voice, a soulful rasp of an instrument [...] that carries this album and makes "Change in Louise," "Feeling Alright," "Just Like a Woman," "I Shall Be Released," and even "Bye Bye Blackbird" into profound listening experiences." He concluded that "the surprises in the arrangements, tempo, and approaches taken help make this an exceptional album. Tracks like "Just Like a Woman," with its soaring gospel organ above a lean textured acoustic and light electric accompaniment, and the guitar-dominated rendition of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" [...] all help make this an exceptional listening experience."
