some reviews refer to this as stripped down production, not really, there are various adages such as "keep it simple stupid" or "less is more". This is powerful stuff, possibly the best Mr Jones has done and shows up other albums of all genres as over produced, full of unnecessary bells and whistles.

I have been a fan of Tom Jones for the last 40 years and I my opinion this is one of his strongest albums yet.I thought his album Reload was one of those ideas that just did not quite work.However with this album what you get is 7 cover versions of tracks from artists such as Bob Dylan (What Good Am I?),John Lee Hooker (Burning Hell) and Roebuck "Pop" Staples (Don't Knock).You also get 4 tracks written by Tom Jones and Ethan Johns and in my opinion there is not one weak track on the album,the four by Tom and Ethan stand up to scrutinity on their own,check out Ain't No Grave.
I was using this album in it's vinyl form to audition a new turntable in a local hi-fi dealer and it was making people in the shop stop and listen and come over to ask who it was and how much they were enjoying it and what was the name of the album.Needless to say this album is hardly off my turntable.
There are also quite a few noteable artists who join Tom on this album;Christopher Holland,Booker T Jones,Henry Spinetti to name some of them.
If you are a fan of Tome Jones and/or traditional Blues music then this is one album you should have in your collection. Go enjoy.

I would never have thought I would have bought a TJ album, saw him perform on TV and took a punt. The quality of the production and the range in his performance is excellent. Have the vinyl version and it is great for pushing your HiFi

This is my first tom jones purchase,(not my normal listening stuff )having heard the album on cd (my sister in laws copy)i thought the sound would be even better on vinyl,so i purchased a copy along with my morning jackets new album,the problem with praise and blame is the surface noise,!its so off putting and spoils a decent album,put against m m j and the new horrors album the noise is bad,i could complain but the hassle with a vinyl return nah!Any way don't be put off with this review it not a bad album ,just a bad copy
