5.0 out of 5 stars Tom 'the voice' Jones May 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
A truly great collection. The presentation standards are good, with a decent printed cover, and full colour booklet with some great photos of a young tom jones. The booklet acts as a kind of mini biography, charting his career from start to finish, with some nice quotes from Tom himself. Particularly interesting is the way Tom talks about his friendship with Elvis, and how when the first met, elvis asked him 'how the hell do you sing like that?'
The music on the 4 cds is all top class. Although mostly cover versions, Tom really does add his own touch to them, and makes them his own. The remastering is perfect, with the exception of track 1 on disc 1, which sounds a little grainy, but as the 4 cds are all in chronological order, this is oldest, so some quality loss is understandable.
To sum up, Tom Jones isnt an artist. He is however, one of the great entertainers, and this box set show cases his career very nicely, and justifies the hefty price tag

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Complilation Yet For Legendary Performer August 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Tom Jones compilation discs are too numerous to mention. Most of them deal with specific genres or types of songs the grammy winning pop star recorded, be it country songs, romantic ballads, live concert sets, and a multitude of collecions highlighting his Top40 hits in the US and UK. This collection, a 3 CD box set complete with extensive liner notes, rare photos, and an interview with the singer, is by far the most comprehensive treatment his four decades long career has recieved.

The songs are largely in chronolgical order of orignal release, starting with the very first single Jones ever recorded, nearly a year before his trademark "It's Not Unusual" put him on the map in both England and the states. The first two discs focus mainly on Jones recordings from his "prime period", 1965-1971 when he enjoyed the bulk of his commercial success. Plenty of album cuts (mix of original songs and remakes) and occassional live cuts surround a collection of nearly every notable hit single the singer had in his heyday. US million sellers such as "She's A Lady", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", and "Without Love (There Is Nothing)", along with other notable hits such as "Green, Green Grass Of Home", "Delilah", "Help Yourself", etc are all included. There's a handful of lesser known songs from the mid 70's when Jones career was slowing down that are not often available on CD. The third CD picks up with Jones re-emergence in 1987 and follows him through his more recent work, which while not as well known in the US as his 60's output, has garnered high critical acclaim. If nothing else, the third disc shows Jones versatility is alive and well and his voice has held up extremely well also.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not "definitive" April 5, 2008
By Gatita
Format:Audio CD
This compilation is a wonderful collector's CD, but I was surprised not to see a few faves and hits, like "Only Once", "Come to Me" and "Say You'll Stay Until Tomorrow"...among a few other songs I wish were included for my own whim. I truly enjoyed hearing his newer soulful songs, especially "Black Betty" and "Tom Jones International".

I need to mention the "booklet" that was included. It was a great read until I realized paragraphs and pages missing making the biography incomplete and confusing to follow. I tried contacting the distributor and Amazon to no avail. I inquired if this was an isolated situation on Tom's Official Web site forum and discovered that it was not and that other fans encountered the same misprinted information. The site's "Admin" responded and asked a few questions. I assumed they were going to look into it. Haven't heard back.

Never the less, this compliation is enjoyable and a good representation of Tom Jones's career from the early 60s to the early 2000s. 40 years and The Voice is still going strong.

5.0 out of 5 stars More, more and so much more Tom Jones April 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wow! What a collection. It is fabulous and highlights very well, Tom's career.This 4CD set comprises his hits, rarer tracks and many covers - all with the Tom Jones 'oomph'. A must for any Tom Jones fan to add to your collection. Great reading as well - now that helps explain the price tag although I must admit to waiting a while to purchase an absolute bargain, however well worth the price tag at full price, 93, yes 93 tracks. I guess the only downside to this collection is the non inclusion of his country hits but don't let that stop you grabbing this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I Can Say Is WOW!!! How BEAUTIFUL!!!!! February 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I got this collection for Christmas and I was thrilled!!!! It is absolutely awesome. What an amazing career he has had. I love how it ranges from 1964-2002 because it features the best of all his songs. I wasn't sure if I would like all the songs and boy was I wrong. This set turned me into an even bigger Tom Jones fan, which I didn't think was possible! This is a no brainer for all the Tom Jones fans out there. The book on the inside is wonderful too because it has a ton of wonderful pictures and it is fantastic to read about his career. This set is 100% perfect and I wouldn't change a thing!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is it December 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a complete box set for collector's and fans. All killer, no filler. This isn't a cheap product, nor is it a cheap price. But if you like Tom Jones, then you want this. Remasters of many songs that he did that hit the charts, they weren't top 40, but you still liked them. This is a must have, because they don't play these songs on the radio anymore. If you want to hear it, you have to buy it.
