Now I am myself one of those older ladies, although I believe I have only thrown undergarments maybe once towards someone and possibly that was because I was trying to get them in a hamper. Now, I really, really get that Tom Jones was and still is a MONSTER talent, and truly a gifted singer. He's definitely someone I would love to see in concert still, as his voice still sounds great and his performance skills are still...swivel-y. Back inna day, Tom had himself an ABC-TV variety show called "This Is Tom Jones," which ran from 1969 to 1971 and featured scores of some of the top entertainment acts of the day. Today, I am going to share with you three SUH-WEET duets from the show with Tom going head-to-head in a SOUL SMACKDOWN with Little Richard, Wilson Pickett, and Stevie Wonder! Who wins? WE DO! Please to enjoy!
