B.J. Thomas is often remembered for his biggest pop hits, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Hooked on a Feeling," "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" and "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song." But like many artists whose careers were longer than their pop chart success, there's a lot more to Thomas' catalog than these four songs. In addition to 1980s success on the country charts, Thomas recorded albums throughout the mid-60s and 70s that turned up lower-charting hit singles and terrific album sides. Collectors' Choice has gathered Thomas' first eight solo albums for Scepter as a series of four two-fers, starting with his 1966 label debut, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, and concluding with 1971's Billy Joe Thomas.

1966's I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry reprised the title song with which Thomas reached #8 on the charts as the lead singer of the Houston-based Triumphs. Thomas re-imagines Hank Williams' country classic as pop-soul with slow, measured vocals underlined by a mournful organ, low bass and drums lightly counting out the waltz time. A falling horn line at the end of each verse adds some Stax flavor, and the song's heartbreak is brought to a head in the anguished wails with which Thomas takes the song out. He takes Williams' "There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight" similarly down-tempo, with a harpsichord in place of organ, a guitar carrying the blues and Jordanaires-styled backing vocals adding their moan.

It is downright wonderful to see these albums reissued on CD, and 2-on-1 at that. Good liner notes, which is a step up for Collector's Choice (they previously had poor packaging). The only reason I took 1 star away is the mastering. These recordings lack punch, low end and could have given a slight bit more clarity. Scepter vinyl was low grade, but I find the reel to reels of BJ's albums sound better than these CDs. Not a big deal, these are still an essential and welcome addition to all BJ Thomas fans!
