Product Description:

"Recordings mastered from the legendary U.S. coast to coast T.V. specials," reads a note on the back of this budget release, and that's all the information offered on a collection of 21 duets between Tom Jones and a wide range of other performers. (Curiously, there is also one track, "Pain," performed by Tina Turner solo!) In fact, along with song titles, duet partners, and the legally required song publishing information, that's all the text to be found on this disc, and even some of that is incorrect; Deniece Williams, Marisa Berenson, and Sondra Locke get their names misspelled. Did we say Marisa Berenson and Sondra Locke, actresses not exactly known as singers? Yes, we did, and they're here along with Susan Anton and Brooke Shields, who have been known to open their mouths in song on occasion, but justly are not famous for it. The rest of Jones' partners are real singers, however, and they are an odd cross section of, well, perhaps the kind of performers he might expect to run into in Las Vegas, from Paul Anka to Juliet Prowse and Lola Falana, plus associates from his country days like Lynn Anderson and Tanya Tucker, as well as soul singers such as Isaac Hayes and Teddy Pendergrass, and even Donny and Marie Osmond (on separate songs). Whew! Clearly, Jones is happy to co-star with practically anyone, and, as usual, he applies an equally open-minded approach to material, ready to tackle a variety of pop/rock, country, and traditional pop. He is a good duet partner, too, working with his co-singers, listening to them, and matching their interpretations with his own. There are some silly performances here, but Jones is never afraid to look foolish (or stand next to someone who does), so he never really suffers, even when Brooke Shields is torturing "Little Queenie." ~ William Ruhlmann
