Well, OK...It's A Little Unusual

Let's start the week with a little Tom Jones, if for no other reason except this was the first song we heard on the radio this morning.

I can't lay claim to owning any of his albums (I do own his version of Prince's "Kiss," which is a hell of a lot better than you might think), but I've always liked Tom Jones. Even saw him perform live once, back in the days when my aunts would take my brothers and I to a show during our annual weekly trip to Lake Tahoe. I think it was Robert Christgau who called him the missing link between Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley (or something like that), and that's as good a description as any.
