The Truth About Tom Jones: Part Two
Alan Walsh, Melody Maker, 12 October 1968
Tom Jones is a rare person. Adulation, money, fame — all these he has, yet they don't seem to have touched him fundamentally. He's still sincere, cool, amiable, fun to be with; one of the boys in the nicest sense. Yet despite it all, he has star quality. He looks like a star, even standing in a West End pub with a pint of Red Barrel. He typifies to many women the archetypal, red-blooded virile male; eyes turn when he enters a bar. Yet men like him, too. And he's not afraid to speak his mind.
