Knighted for his service to music, with numerous gold and platinum records and Top 40 Hits, Sir Tom Jones is one of the all time great vocalists to emerge from the British Invasion. Following in the spirited and undaunted footsteps of the critically lauded Praise & Blame (2010), and Pop icon though he is, Jones has delivered a landmark album in 2013 that has a unique kind of magic and is different from anything he has ever done. Spirit in the Room features all new repertoire made up of gospel, blues and Americana, and includes songs by Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Odetta, Paul McCartney, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling) Spirit in the Room marks a new, adventurous path for Jones, one that is rootsy, bluesy, bold, and raw.

pretty cool guy, always entertaining and a great voice. I think he has a great sense of humour too.

Based on the description "rootsy, bluesy, bold and raw"...I may put a more focused ear to this...cheers Fishy
