In 1969, Tom Jones was the sexiest thing going, and the best place to see him swagger was his ABC variety show. THIS IS TOM JONES, hosted by the star in his late 20s, was packed full of performances by the era's biggest musical acts--from the Bee Gees to John Denver--with room left over for rising comics such as George Carlin and Tim Conway. This collection of vintage episodes features appearances by Lynn Redgrave and Cass Elliot, as well as plenty of hits from the host himself.
Network television needed a healthy dose of youthful sex appeal and swagger in the late‘60s, and Tom Jones fit the bill perfectly: he oozed charisma thanks to his powerhouse voice and slick stage moves. At the age of 28, he hosted his own weekly musical variety show, This is Tom Jones, a hip, high-energy hour of entertainment that ran on ABC from 1969 to 1971.
