CD Reviews

Greatest Tom Jones collection of all-time!
Jason Ross | Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada! | 04/17/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All of his best sixties and seventies memorable hits classics are here like "What's New Pussycat?", "It's Not Unusual", "Deliah", "Thunderball" & "Kiss". It was originally released on Decca Records label in 1997associated with a company called Deram after 1998. By polygram's recent album compilation 'The Complete Tom Jones' now added with 22 tracks re-issued instead of twenty songs. Now i'm suprised it's digtally remastered. You'll won't be disapointed because this is the definitive ultimate CD your sure to enjoy for any casual listener!"
Generous Portions of Tom Jones' Voice and Charisma
Anthony G Pizza | FL | 02/11/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The back cover photo of this hits album, originally from his "Live at Caesar's Palace" LP, nearly tells the story. Jones, wearing a Roman tunic and blank stare while holding a wine goblet, is surrounded by lovely ladies.You can't take it seriously. The same is true of these performances, where Jones' overwhelming voice finds its nuances in the wink wink, nudge, nudge self-satire of his delivery. Good songs make it entertaining and worth it, and Jones had an uncanny knack for picking them. He specialized in dramatic narratives and tragic endings (in the country-soul "Green, Green Grass of Home" and the mariachi-flavored "Delilah," he lost the girl.) He sang over-the-top about over-the-top emotions: heartbreak (the soul covers "I Who Have Nothing" and "Without Love") and lust (the CD's worst tracks, "Help Yourself" and "Love Me Tonight," are about as Austin Powers as it gets.) "The Best of Tom Jones" plays much like the dinner buffets enjoyed in Jones' second home, Las Vegas: generous portions, solid main dishes, a little cheese for flavor, all delivered with flash and style. But still all in all, delicious and filling."
Terrific assortment of hits by Tom Jones

"The Best of Tom Jones is another excellent compilation of the best of Tom Jones' artistry. Wow, how that man can sing! The sound quality is excellent and I like that artwork!

"It's Not Unusual" starts the track set with one of Tom's earlier--and biggest--hits ever! Tom sings this with a lot of passion, heart and soul. His excellent diction and an uncanny sense of timing make this a huge hit for Tom Jones! "Chills And Fever" sounds very `60s; and this works well when Tom belts this one out with some help from a female chorus! Excellent!

"Green, Green Grass Of Home" has a country twist to it; the ballad is very pretty and the music that accompanies Tom really fits perfectly for his lyrics. This is very impressive. In addition, listen for Tom to wail out "What's New Pussycat?" from the film of the same name. Tom delivers this with a lot of warmth; and he sings with all his might to make this a very memorable number. "Not Responsible" features Tom singing a song about love with a "hip and happening" musical beat that shines strong!

"(It Looks Like) I'll Never Fall In Love Again" is a more tender ballad that Tom massages with his fine voice; and "Delilah" is a mighty awesome ballad even if some say it IS politically incorrect. "Delilah" was a huge hit for Tom and just listen tells you why--it's great! "Without Love (There Is Nothing)" has a spoken piece by Tom; and when he breaks into song this number takes off like a jet! Tom sings this especially well.

"She's A Lady" is easily a major highlight of this album; it was always a huge hit for Tom. "The Young New Mexican Puppeteer" isn't exactly my very favorite Tom Jones number; but he does sing this well and I appreciate that. "Puppet Man" is a better ballad that features Tom singing his heart out with a very solid backup group of lady singers.

The CD also ends very well with Tom doing a great job on "Kiss." "Kiss" is a Prince tune that Tom tackles--and he succeeds! Tom's voice and his talents make this a strong ending for this CD.

Tom Jones fans will enjoy this album; and this is also a great CD for people just becoming familiar with Tom Jones and his art. Enjoy!
