Coming later this year to DVD is a three dvd set of Tom Jones' 1969 ABC Variety show from TimeLife. The sets promise to be something special as the always explosive Jones is joined by comedians ranging from Richard Pryor to Peter Sellers and an incredibly varied and exciting group of musical guest including Stevie Wonder, Crosby Still Nash and Young, Janis Joplin, Burt Bacharach, The Who and Mary Hopkin.
I am a bit disappointed that the set will not include Claudine Longet's appearance on the show that I have long wanted to see but perhaps there will be a volume two. Also of interest is an appearance by MOD SQUAD'S Peggy Lipton promoting her fine solo album from 69 singing Carol King's NATURAL WOMAN and a brand new interview with Tom Jones himself.
The following link will take you to Time Life's Pre-order page which includes the complete specs.
