Trivia

On one occasion, Tom Jones was going to sing "Passing Strangers" with Nancy Wilson, but the American censor pointed out that the title implied that the singers had once been lovers, which would be unacceptable in certain American states. See more »

Classic series from entertainments golden era
15 November 2018 | by jfryleachSee all my reviews

I remember this series from it's first showing when I was quite young, it was essential viewing certainly from my mothers view point. I managed to get several of the dvd sets and I was not disappointed. The talent appearing were at the top of their game, personally invited by Tom to share the stage with him, the guests were from both sides of the pond and was filmed in the UK and the US - Those included Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder, The Moody Blues, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, The Who, Bobbi Gentry, Cher, The Bee Gee's and dozens more with comedy provided by the likes of Richard Prior, George Carlin and Peter Sellers. The only weak participants are the resident comedy troupe The Ace Trucking company but it's a minor gripe. Then of course there's Mr Jones who is in excellent form throughout. If you are a fan of great classic music, get your hands on a copy of the Time Life collections.
