Tom Jones is 81. An Elvis-like sex symbol in 60s Britain, and thus, easily lampooned. But Tom has one of the greatest singing voices ever. It's a force of nature. And he is a great interpreter of song. People who write songs dream of such a performer, someone who has the wisdom and talent to find and convey the very heart of their creations.
Listen to my thoughts on Tom Jones, and hear some of the great & lesser known songs in his extensive repertoire.
