Tom Jones' singles

This is the best deal in town: BR Music put out these neat fatboys with all the B's and sometimes extras.

This is the prime of Tom Jones. His B-sides are consistently of very high quality. Takes you up to "Kiss" in 88.

It's all 60s highlights except for Kiss from 88 (his comeback no 1 of 3)

I think it's a pretty solid run of orchestral pop singles. I like good arrangements, lots of brass, etc. Even "Delilah" with it's swaying, nursing home singalong chorus, it's got plenty to get excited about.

Peter Sullivan produced his 60s singles, and he's no slouch, having also produced the landmark single, "Shakin' All Over", for Johnny Kidd & the Pirates.

I ended up going with the first three listed.

But if "Chills And Fever", "Resurrection Shuffle" and "Gimme Shelter" had been in the poll, I'd've had a harder time choosing.

Yes! 'Chills and fever' that's the one missing.
