Tom Jones all but invented saucy power pop back before the sixties even started to swing when his second single "It's Not Unusual" rocketed up the UK charts in 1965. After that initial triumph the singer never looked back,... more » tying his hair back with a thin black ribbon and putting some rather expressive body English into his stage moves, which assured that the stage floor would be routinely pelted with various undergarments pitched by enthusiastic fans. Almost four decades later both Jones and his audience are no less fervent as Wales' second-most famous export runs through his extensive and varied songbook, still imbuing his old chestnuts like "What's New Pussycat?" and "Delilah" with a sense of naughty fun and irony. But Jones is at his best while giving the latest generation of rockers a run for their money, as he pairs up with the likes of Wyclef Jean, the Sterophonics, Art of Noise, the Cardigans, and Mousse T; as he overhauls staid tired standards like "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)" or "Baby It's Cold Outside" with his arch humor and gutsy delivery. Prince's "Kiss" crackles with an inner light that even the great Minneapolis savant didn?t intend, while his duet with Portishead is as cold and disturbing as a grave.

What can I say about a cd that has every song that made Tom Jones who he is today. There's plenty to enjoy here--from his early hits("It's Not Unusual" which was a #1 Hit and launched his career), to current hits like "Thunderball" which I heard resurrected his career at that time. What a voice, what an attitude, and what stylish songs of all kinds! Enjoy this cd. I enjoy it every time I turn it on!
Call it Tom Jones' later Hits

"Six of these 19 songs are from 1999's "Reload", which was a smash in Europe, but never released in the U.S. 2 others come from Jones' European-only 2002 CD that was co-Produced by Wyclef Jean. The Wyclef cuts are the weakest of the newer songs. Track 12 is from 1994's "The Lead and How To Swing It" CD. That leaves 9 hits that everyone knows. Because this CD concentrates on Tom Jones' most recent output, it's missing a "Daughter Of Darkness", "Without Love" and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again." And once again we get a Tom Jones Best of that doesn't have his 1977 Top 15 hit (and #1 Country single), "Say You'll Stay Until Tomorrow." You can find the latter on Curb's Greatest Songs CD. So, it would have been better if the compilers had stuck to a Greatest Hits formula that covers his 80's and beyond tracks. So don't call this definitive. Super brief liner notes and a few pictures are all you get for the CD booklet. If you're curious as to what Tom Jones has been up to recently this is worth a spin. But you're better off investing in a copy of "Reload" and sticking with your other Jones CD collections."
The voice, the man, the power...

"Okay, I'm not a long-time Tom Jones fan. In fact, I like country music (which is why I absolutely loved "Green, Green Grass of Home," by the way). However, Tom Jones is one of those guys who transcends genres. And I'm living proof that even a country boy knows how to get it on!Okay, after that corny statement (I'm not too sure what it means, either), let me tell you about the music of this CD. If you're a Tom Jones fan, this review is probably pointless; you know the quality of the music you're going to get, and you're anxious to get it. If you're new, like me, then you might want to read on.The album's three best (in my opinion) are: "It's Not Unusual" (of course), "Kiss" (a little pop, but hey, he's versitile), and "Sometimes We Cry" (a duet with Van Morrison, a stellar performance from both men). Okay. I won't go into each song by detail; there's 19 of them, and that could take a while. Let me just describe to you the range of styles this man has: from the classics "She's a Lady" and "What's New Pussycat," to the pop "Kiss," to the rockers "Mama Told Me Not To Come" and "Burning Down the House," to the hiphop of "Tom Jones International" and "Black Betty," to the country of "Green Green Grass of Home" and "Without Love," to the blues of "Motherless Child." He even gets a little spy action with the theme to "Thunderball."Quite a guy.Except for the Van Morrison duet, Jones is best when he's on his own. Still, you should enjoy these songs; they're timeless, they're priceless, and they are truly classics. Tom Jones: one heck of a performer, one heck of a guy, one dandy album."
Give this guy a spotlight !!!

"Reloaded: Greatest Hits is another budget priced CD chock full of great hits by Tom Jones. Tom can still make the ladies swoon and this is certainly to his credit. The quality of the sound on this album is excellent and I really like the artwork as well. Great!
"It's Not Unusual" starts the CD with a bang! Tom swings brightly as he sings this song to perfection--and beyond! The backup singers sound great and the melody gets strength from the brass and more. "It's Not Unusual" is clearly one of Ton Jones' biggest hits ever. "What's New Pussycat?" has Tom singing this very well--and he handles those tempo and key changes so well--what a master! Tom aces this easily and "What's New Pussycat?" is another major highlight of this album.
"Delilah" stuns me with its beauty; Tom sings this with passion, heart and soul. I love it! Tom sings this somewhat forlorn love song with heart and soul; and the melody is brilliantly done. "Delilah" is one of my favorite Tom Jones hits; I listen to this all the time when I put on a Tom Jones CD! Listen also for "She's A Lady;" this ode to his one true love features Tom squarely front and center--and Tom takes every advantage of this opportunity! The melody works wonders for this number and Tom handles tempo changes effortlessly. I'm amazed!
"Mama Told Me (Not To Come)" is another huge ballad previously done by Three Dog Night that really impresses me; you're bound to love this tune if you haven't heard it yet! "Baby, It's Cold Outside" has Tom doing a fine duet with Cerys Matthews and this gets the royal treatment for sure!
"Black Betty" has Tom doing a much more modern song that we're used to hearing from Tom; but it all holds its own very well. I commend Tom for keeping up with the times! Tom never misses a beat and this is fantastic. "Green, Green Grass Of Home" is an older Tom Jones hit with a country twist that makes this tune very memorable. I really like "Green, Green Grass Of Home;" this is exquisite when Ton Jones sings this so passionately.
"Without Love (There Is Nothing)" is another newer Tom Jones hit and it's really very good. I like some of these newer tunes recorded by Tom. It proves he's a timeless master and I can really appreciate that. "Without Love (There Is Nothing)" tugs at my heartstrings and I think you'll like this ballad, too. "Help Yourself" has a solid melody and Tom handles this like the pro he was and still remains! The CD concludes very well with Tom and The Cardigans performing "Burning Down The House." This much newer hit rocks and I think Tom handles it quite well. Impressive!
Tom Jones remains a huge master; he's clearly one of the best male vocalists of the entire twentieth century. Woo hoo! This is great for fans of Tom Jones; and newcomers to Tom Jones will appreciate this CD as well. "
Tom Jones BABY!

"I went to see Tom Jones for the second time in Las Vegas a few years ago. He had some new material so I decided to check it out. His new CD was a greatest hits but had mixed in all of his new stuff. And I must say, his new stuff ROCKS. The new songs: Black Betty, Mama Told Me (Not to Come), Sex Bomb, Tom Jones International, and If I Only Knew were all excellent. Toms rendition of some of these old classics just go to show you what a performer he is as he makes them his own. And the new origional songs are just as good. And of course with it being a Tom Jones greatest hits you have all his great standards. I have also heard several of the new songs used in some big screen Hollywood movies recently like Domino and a few others. Black Betty and Mama Told Me Not to Come are the highlights of this new CD and Toms pipes are in exceptional... as always."
The one that started it all!!!!

"This was the cd that started my love of Tom Jones!! It is awesome because he has his classic hits and then his more recent ones. The reason I bought this cd was the wonderful song "Without love". I was amazed by all the other tracks too. It is a great for someone not really familiar with his work because it gives a good variety of his songs and style of music. I don't know where I would be if I never bought this cd because I never would have become the Tom Jones fan I am today!!!"
