Yeah, really good - not up there with his best, I.M.O., but very catchy.

I like it better than the "Sex Bomb" and "Burning down the house" tracks.

Here's a cool foreign (not sure what language) website you and other TJ fans may want to download his original albums from. I downloaded the "She's a Lady" and "I Who Have Nothing" and they sound great.

Note: Sometimes there is an intrusive advertising that comes on the screen and hard to get rid of.

Update : Oh dear It Looks like you are limited to just 4 downloads (unless you choose to pay for and open an account) as I tried to download another TJ album and it did not work. greystoke can i suggest you download "Body and Soul" 1973 album. Tom's 1970's LP releases was patchy but that album contained super versions of "Running Bear" "Ain't No Sunshine" "Lean On Me" and "Letter to Lucille". Love Tom's version of Running Bear -

That wasn't a bad album - Running Bear was fun and The Ballad of Billie Jo was about the loosest version this side of Ella. Bill Withers' Ain't No Sunshine was of covered at this time, and Tom does it justice here. And the cover was pretty good, too.

So you have that one then ? Of the many singers who have recorded "Ain't No Sunshine" I rate Tom's as the best.

It's available as a download on that website i provided a link on (I downloaded it). It's great sound. Forgot to add " I'll share my life with you" as amongst the best tracks on the record/cd.
