  • These sides are doing everything right — big, full-bodied, clean and clear with wonderfully present vocals and a solid bottom end
  • We guarantee you’ve never heard the Burt Bacharach/Hal David penned title track sound better than it does here!

  • Tom Jones’ sophomore release makes its Hot Stamper debut here with STUNNING Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • Punchy, dynamic, transparent, spacious and musical throughout – you won’t believe how big and bold the sound is on this Parrot original pressing
  • The over-the-top production for the theme song to Thunderball may be a bit much (although we love it for what it is), but the rest of the album is classic Tom Jones
  • This is what vintage ’60s analog is all about, that smooth, relaxed sound that never calls attention to itself and just lets the music flow
  • “From tender ballads sung in understated style like ‘Where Do You Belong’ to all out rockers like ‘This and That,’ Jones voice and charisma shine effortlessly…”

Folks, that sound is gone and it sure isn’t showing signs of coming back. If you love hearing INTO a recording, actually being able to “see” the performers, and feeling as if you are sitting in the studio with the band, this is the record for you. It’s what vintage all analog recordings are known for — this sound. (more…)
