Universal's 20TH CENTURY MASTERS series of single-artist hits packages aren't meant for diehard fans of the artists chosen. If anything, a true Tom Jones fan may be somewhat disappointed in this 12-track anthology.
An inexpensive, all-meat, no-filler introduction for the novice, if you want to know what to love about Tom Jones, it's all here. "It's Not Unusual," "What's New Pussycat," "She's a Lady," the Bond theme "Thunderball," are all present, alongside such mellower material as "Detroit City" and "The Green Green Grass of Home." This is probably the best starting point for the Tom Jones beginner.
