THE SHOW THAT WAS DESTINED TO BE A VARIETY CLASSIC..STARRING THE ONE AND ONLY TOM JONES!!!
Out of all the live-variety hour shows that were produced during the late 60's and early 70's,only one show that would enthralled audiences for the three years it ran on the air was none other than Britain's Mister Excitement himself........
THE ONE AND ONLY..........TOM JONES!!!!!!!
The series "THIS IS TOM JONES",ran from 1969 through 1972 on ABC-TV,and was produced by ITC Productions,but the show was broadcast in Hollywood.
It was amazing that ABC-TV had the rights to broadcast his variety series and not to mention a lot of his variety specials that were produced in the late 1960's and early 1970's,including his classic Christmas special,which hasn't been since in years..until now through the magic of DVD and video which is not available.
As for his series,it was something to see,especially with the man who had the golden voice and can put audiences in a spell(especially with the ladies)with his charm and special movement into every song that he did and the show was a winner on the ABC-TV network during its run. As for the guest stars there were many including appearances by Bob Hope, Little Richard,Dionne Warwick,Sammy Davis,Jr. and so many more.
This needs to be seen on DVD soon,for those who want to experience the awesome power and spellbinding voice that this man brought to millions and is still got it going strong today....yes,ladies and gentlemen..... THIS IS TOM JONES!!!!!!
