Great News!! Finally!! For years fans have been hankering for a release of Tom's original TV show, This Is Tom Jones. As many of you know, this great show was filmed in both Los Angeles and London from 1969-1971 and was considered the pinnacle of the variety show genre. It's with great pleasure we can announce the release of the first of a series of DVDs, exclusively from Time Life, that contain the great design, sets, music and performances from Tom and his many guests on This Is Tom Jones. The first set of 3 discs, subtitled 'Rock 'N Roll Legends', features Tom singing some of his biggest hits, along with classic performances by The Who, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, The Moody Blues and many more. In addition, you'll get over an hour of extras, including a fresh new interview with Tom as he spins some stories about his experiences on the show.
These shows are full of great music and tv moments. You'll see the fabulous style of the times in its original form, and witness music, dance and production numbers that were the cutting edge of the era. The film is of very high viewing quality — its a real time-capsule of the range of entertainment at the time. At last — Tom in all his glory, fantastic guests — what enormous fun to watch!
Time Life will launch the DVDs by direct-response TV in the US on May 21, and the 3-DVD set will be out at retail on June 26th. Watch this space for more info soon!
