Synopsis


Tom Jones
’ first single, 1964’s Chills And Fever, did not perform well while his second single, 1965’s It’s Not Unusual, surprised everyone. The song not only entered the UK singles chart upon release, but climbed to No.1 within a month and landed him an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, a popular US late-night TV talk programme.

In 1966, Jones released a cover of the country song Green, Green Grass Of Home, which became a No.1 hit in the UK. Throughout the mid to late ’60s, he also scored a slew hit singles with Once Upon A Time, With These Hands, What’s New Pussycat?, Thunderball, Detroit City, I'll Never Fall In Love, I'm Coming Home, Delilah, Help Yourself, Love Me Tonight and Without Love (There Is Nothing)

With a baritone voice and delivery ranging from husky to smooth, his singing style was inspired by artists like Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Little Richard and his sound was heavily influenced by American R&B, soul and rock.

In 1971, Jones released the massive hit She's A Lady, and during the remainder of the ’70s established himself as a major draw headlining showrooms on the Las Vegas Strip. In this decade, he also launched his own label, MAM Records, with manager and songwriter Gordon Mills.

The ’80s saw Jones try his hand at country music. Although nine of his songs broke into the US country top 40 chart, he failed to attract UK listeners until releasing the 1987 single A Boy From Nowhere, which peaked at No.2. His cover of Prince’s Kiss with Art Of Noise was also a No.5-charting hit and led him to win an MTV Video Music Award for Breakthrough Video. In 1989, Jones received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The ’90s saw Jones re-invent himself once again. Following his successful first appearance at Glastonbury in 1992, he popped up as himself on an episode of the animated sitcom The Simpsons entitled Marge Gets A Job. Plus he released the hit song If I Only Knew in 1994 and recorded a cover of You Can Leave Your Hat On for the soundtrack of the film The Full Monty.
