Tommy Hunt: A Black Tom Jones

Roger St. Pierre, New Musical Express, 4 March 1972

TOMMY HUNT is a name you'll be hearing a lot of if the best laid plans of the entertainment business don't go astray. More than just a singer, this easy-going, friendly American is everything they've tried to make out of Lovelace Watkins — except here there is nothing "created". His talent is completely natural — he could well be that black Tom Jones who had to arise sooner or later.
