This collection of Tom's all-time greatest recorded performances contains 22 digitally remastered Tom Jones classics, including all of his Top 10 hits. Includes "It's Not Unusual," "Green Green Grass of Home," "What's New Pussycat?," "Delilah," "She's a Lady," "I (Who Have Nothing)," "Kiss" and more. Extensive TV campaign.
Despite the killing hokiness of some of his material--"The Young New Mexican Puppeteer," anyone? Anyone?--Tom Jones has always had an ear for songs and the hefty voice to apply to them; Prince's "Kiss," with its line about watching Dynasty, was made for Jones. This umpteenth collection of his hits, otherwise concentrating on his '60s and '70s work for the British Decca label, definitively pulls together the Welshman's strong supper-club musical instincts and playful campiness. ("What's New Pussycat?" is here, of course, and on the back cover, he seems to be posing with the Golddiggers.) You want over-the-top? Over-the-top is his home, as the massively un-PC "Delilah" and "Not Responsible" remind us. One unfortunate omission: the Bacharach-David movie theme "Promise Her Anything." --Rickey Wright

For those of you too young to remember, and with all due respect, there'd be no Michael Bolton without Tom Jones. One of the best voices in pop music, and still "doing his thing" with recent release of a new album. But these are many of the hits that made him famous in the 1960s. Included here, not on an older "best of" album we have, is the theme from "Thunderball," one of the James Bond films from that era. Terrific.
And very good quality audio; you'll love it. Enjoy.
