"Billy Joe Thomas", which was released orginally in 1972 with a gatefold cover had a copy of his birth certificate adorning the back cover! Each of the 12 songs featured the original songwriter as a performer on their respective cut. Look at the talent performing on this album: Stevie Wonder(harmonica on "Happier Than the Morning Sun"), Carole King (piano on the great, "A Fine Way to Go"), Jimmy Webb (piano on "A Song For My Brother"), John Sebastian (guitar on "The Stories We Can Tell"), Paul Williams (Background vocals on "That's What Friends Are For") songwriter Mark James (Background vocals on "I Get Enthused" and the album highlight for me, "Are We Losing Touch") and on and on... Also playing: Background vocalists extraordinare, The Blossoms (shout out to Darlene Love),guitar great Duane Eddy (on the single "Rock And Roll Lullaby" which also featured co-author Barry Mann).
But holding all this talent together, the immensely talented B. J. Thomas, who with his incredible vocals put his very personal stamp on every one of the 12 songs. Quite a feat, indeed!
Recorded in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville this still is a
uniquely cohesive piece of music, which speaks volumes about the gifted vocalist B. J. Thomas. This album always seemed so personal to him, I felt that his personality really was on display on each song. Thank you, Mr. Thomas

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.

After out-of-the-gate success with Huey Meaux in Texas, four albums and a hit singles with Chips Moman in Memphis, and a Los Angeles-based chart-topper with Burt Bacharach and Hal David, by the start of the 1970s B.J. Thomas was once again on the move. His 1970 release Most of All includes a few finished tracks recorded with Moman at American Studios, but also includes a stop in Atlanta and finally settles in at Doraville, Alabama's Studio One. Here Thomas connected with producer Buddy Buie and the studio players who would form the Atlanta Rhythm Section. This new setting produced two hits, "Most of All" and "No Love at All," both Top 40 pop and Top 5 adult contemporary.

This particular re-issue contains materials that sound softer overall compared to the other re-issues of the materials preceding it. And production wise, I think this one's the best. Highlights for me include "Table For Two For One", "Rainy Night in Georgia", Brown Eyed Woman", "No Love At All", "I Get Enthused", "Life", just to name a few... For everyone who loves music of that period and listening to singers with quality voice, don't miss this one. I think the Scepter years, and the following couple of years, are really the period when BJT was at his best.
