Editorial Reviews

Recorded in both the UK and the US, at a time when Tom Jones was exploring his roots in earthy R&B as well as romantic ballads, The Body and Soul of Tom Jones features plenty of the former, with Tom's electrifying renditions of numbers such as 'Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone,' 'Ballad of Billy Joe,' and 'Lean On Me.' Tom Jones Sings She's a Lady features Tom's inspiring version of Paul Anka's title song as well as gorgeous intrepretations of 'Ebb Tide,' and 'In Dreams.' If you want to hear Tom Jones at his soulful, rocking best, then look no further than these albums.

Format: Audio CD
This CD comprises two Tom Jones albums, 1971's TOM JONES SINGS SHE'S A LADY and 1973's BODY & SOUL OF TOM JONES. LADY features a good mix of original compositions like "Till I Can't It No More" along with some of Jones better re-makes, particularly his version of Roy Orbison's "In Dreams". The album moves between adult contemporary, bluesy soul ("It's Up To The Woman"), mild country tinged pop ("One Night Only Love Maker") and manages to squeeze in some uptempo rock oriented material as well, including Jones overtly sexually tinged take on the Fifth Dimension's "Puppett Man" (a Top 40 hit fro Jones from this LP in the US) and of course the title track, which many people don't realize was Jones best selling single in the US.

BODY & SOUL actually finds the singer more into country music, a possible hint at where his music would eventually lead (Jones recorded almost exclusively country material in the late 70's through mid 80's and had multiple Top 40 hits on the US Country Charts during that time). The majority of the collection here are remakes, many of them older country standards, although with Jones involved you do get some R&B infused periodically. Among the covers, Jones excells on "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Wanna Be Right", definately infusing some soul. He moves away from the country sound on covers of "Aint No Sunshine" and "Running Bear" as well, two more tracks that stand out among the rest.

Production values are good, there are no songs that sound as if Jones shouldn't have touched them (he usually had good taste in covers but every once in awhile he would do something that totally didnt't fit him) and both albums flow well from song to song.

I am so happy to have this CD, it has 21 great songs and some are hard to find hits from Tom's early career. This CD is amazing in the way the songs are listed, it's great to work out to as 1-2 songs are fast, then next song gives slower selection etc.. and I love listening to it. You won't be disappointed with this purchase. I ordered all three different combination CD's of Sir Tom and love all of them! The first being: This title, second one titled: Tom Close Up / TOM, and third: Somethin' Bout You Baby I Like/ Memories Don't Leave People Do and would highly recommend all of them. The seller did great job. I was so happy that it arrived in perfect condition & earlier than expected; was packaged very well, and all the songs are absolutely great! I recommend this seller and will use again.

A past master at performing well, particularly handling a Roy Orbison classic, both fluently and with feeling, and well within his amazing vocal range! One of the best singers Britain has ever produced!
