"Take a look at the alternatives and I'll bet you will agree with me that "The Complete Tom Jones" is the finest anthology of Tom Jones on the market today. According to the liner notes Elvis was a big fan. And Janis Joplin, who had a pretty fair set of pipes herself, was "almost blown off the stage" by him.
In the late 1960's Tom Jones was a phenomenon on both sides of the Atlantic. He was not merely a "singles" artist although he would place a total of 30 songs on the Billboard Hot 100. Tom Jones also sold tons of albums. LP's like "This Is Tom Jones" and "Tom Jones Live In Las Vegas" and several others were huge sellers and made the man one of the top selling artists of the era. And let's not forget the hysteria surrounding Tom's live performances. No doubt about it...Tom Jones was the real deal!
For the most part "The Complete Tom Jones" focuses on the hit singles. You will enjoy hearing the remastered versions of these tunes because the fidelity on many the original Parrot singles was simply not that great. You will find all the big hits you might expect including of course "It's Not Unusual", "What's New Pussycat?" and his biggest hit of all-time, 1971's "She's A Lady". But my favorite Tom Jones recordings are some of the second tier hits like "Letter To Lucille", "Help Yourself" and most especially "The Young New Mexican Puppeteer". I have long felt that this was Tom Jones' finest recording. In addition, you will find the surprise 1988 hit "Kiss" recorded with The Art of Noise as well as the haunting 1991 British hit "I Couldn't Say Goodbye". The liner notes are adequate and the price is right as well. All in all, a nice addition to your collection. Highly recommended."
