Recorded while England were winning the World Cup, this great album from Tom's early years shows the man from the valleys in fine voice. His choice of material tends to the mellow end of the spectrum - with a hint of melancholy (Two Brothers, Green, Green Grass of Home and the James Bond strings of All I get From You..) Tom has only a few 'belters' here - such as Detroit City and the bizzare 60's language of Mohair Sam. This is Tom showing his range of emotion and expression. Its also great fun! The arrangements are hugely entertaining, as well as some of the lyrical flourishes of the day - "...For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre, on and on we walk at day break, again I'll touch, the green green grass of home." Its sad and hilarious at the same time - what more can you want!

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting early collection 1 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
of the now legendary singer. Many of the tracks on this album look back from the sixties to earler decades as Tom does his own versions of country classics such as "Ring of Fire" and the Jim Reeves classic "He'll have to Go". From similar genre we also have Ernie Ford's "Sixteen Tons" and Vaughn Monroe's "Ghost Riders in tyhe Sky".
All interesting and all in the unique, and at this stage developing, Jones style.
Green Green Grass of home is the obvious highlight but this album will be of interest to country fans as well as the Jones faithful.
A good listen and well worth the purchase price.

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Originally released about ten or twelve years earlier, this CD was re-packaged in 2011 as a set (Along came Jones, Atomic, Green green grass of home, Delilah) as X4 Tom Jones, with each CD in its own cardboard case but no liner notes or credits beyond the actual track listings.

The music here is some way removed from the country music coming out of Nashville, then or at any other time, but the songs here are mostly covers of country songs. Three of them (the title track, Detroit city and Funny familiar forgotten feelings) became huge UK pop hits for Tom, and helped to increase awareness of country music in Britain. Tom also had a minor American hit with Sixteen tons

Some of the other songs (Riders in the sky, He'll have to go, Ring of fire, Sixteen tons, Cool water) will be familiar to older country fans (and some pop fans and younger country fans too) via other versions. At least one song here is probably not of country origin, that being My mother's eyes (an American hit for George Jessel in 1929), but it fits in well here.

The other songs include some that are obscure to say the least, but they add interest to the album. Fans of Charlie Rich may recognize Field of yellow daisies. It became a country hit for him in 1974, but I think he recorded it some years earlier. I think I've previously heard Two brothers (a country hit for Autry Inman in 1968), but I can't remember where.

This is an excellent album that showed how, with a little adaptation, country music could appeal to a much wider audience back in the sixties.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jones At Home With Hits & Standards 30 May 2003
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Green, Green Grass Of Home CD features songs included on the US album releases Green, Green Grass Of Home and Funny, Familair, Forgotten Feelings. Many of the songs included are remakes of classic country western genre songs, along with a few standards such as "My Mother's Eyes". Jones even covers the legendary Johnny Cash with a more rock oriented update of "ring Of Fire". Most of the songs tend to the romantic ballad side, although musical arrangements mostly stay true to a more country and less orchestral sound, which was uncommon for Jones in the late 60's. The highlight is the title track, an international smash hit single that gave Jones his second #1 hit in the UK and his first major hit single of consequence in the US after the teen following of "It's Not Unusual" and "What's New Pussycat" from two years earlier.
5.0 out of 5 stars So THRILLED to be able to find and buy this! What a perfect CD!! 23 April 2013
By Karen S. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was so THRILLED to be able to find and buy this CD! It's perfect! I have been trying to replace (lost due to house fire) all my original Sir Tom Jones music collection, and this one is hard to find. It is in excellent shape/condition just as seller described it! This CD arrived just days after ordering it, so way early. It was as stated, pristine condition! It was packaged very well, and seller has been excellent also. I have bought from this seller once before, and also the music CD (Tom Jones again) was perfect. I would highly recommend this seller, will continue to buy from seller and would rate a 10 if possible.
