5.0 out of 5 stars It's not unusual to enjoy the music of Tom Jones, 7 Sep 2005

This review is from: Gold (1965 - 1975) (Audio CD)
Tom Jones is a legend in his own lifetime and there is a bewildering array of compilations available of varying quality. Choosing one is complicated by his career renaissance following his hugely successful Reload album in the nineties. Personally, I prefer to keep that aspect of his career separate from his earlier music. This compilation, focusing on the sixties and seventies, is one of the best compilations of Tom's earlier music. I slightly prefer the European double CD (Singles) but all the big British and American hits from the early part of Tom's career that really matter are on this one as well. American compilations do not always include major British hits that flopped in America but this one does.
Among the classic songs from his peak years (1965 to 1972) that you will find here are It's not unusual, What's new pussycat, Green green grass of home, Detroit city, Funny familiar forgotten feelings, I'll never fall in love again, I'm coming home, Delilah, Help yourself, A minute of your time, Love me tonight, Without love, Daughter of darkness, I who have nothing, She's a lady, Till and The young new Mexican puppeteer. All his other hits from this period are also here.
With a selection of failed singles, B-sides and album tracks also included, this is a brilliant compilation of Tom's music from 1965 to 1975. Other aspects of his career including his nineties comeback are covered by other compilations, but if you want the music that made him famous, this double CD should suit you although I advise you to compare this with Singles before deciding which to buy. Remember to compare prices as well as the track listings - with all the essentials on both collections, you may feel it's not worth the extra even if you prefer the higher-priced set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic listening, 3 Sep 2010

This review is from: Gold (1965 - 1975) (Audio CD)
A nostalgic programme on Tom Jones's life and career on the BBC made me sit down to order some collection albums with his greatest hits. Until now I have never owned a CD with his hits, only the old records from the 60s and 70s which I cannot even play at home anylonger. Just love this Gold album as all the songs make me think of my youth and my disco years when he was one of the most played artists together with all the other soul singers. Because to me that's what he was, a true soul singer and certainly at the same high level of them all; Steve Wonder, Marvin Gaye, etc. Actually, to me Tom Jones was even bigger and I was a great fan of his. He's now 70 (or over) and is still going strong. Amazing! This is definitely the album you should buy if you want to go down memory lane ...

4.0 out of 5 stars GOLDENboy, 9 Mar 2013

This review is from: Gold (1965 - 1975) (Audio CD)
Purchased this cd not only because i havent got any tom jones only on compilation discs, but 2cds there must be a good selection here. Never realised he had so many good songs to his credit, in 10 years. I liked every track on the 1st disc, 2nd disc might be some b tracks on there so not quite such good songs, but thats just a personal choice so dont be put off. So if you want to try out some tom jones start off with some early stuff first.

Loved this album, most of Tom's earlier hits some songs some I had forgotten and it was good to hear them again. He has a fantastic voice and I never tire listening to him.
