From Tom's Legendary ABC-TV Series (1969-1971).
When 28-year-old superstar Tom Jones began hosting his own musical variety show in 1969, he gave the format a welcome shot of adrenaline. From the theme song opener It's Not Unusual to the closing concert segment, This is Tom Jones made sure audiences had a rocking, swinging good time. Each episode featured the biggest acts, sometimes with Tom adding harmony or sharing lead vocals. His energy was amazing and contagious. TV sets across the land broke a sweat.

The 1969 and 1970 holiday programs compiled on this DVD reflect how special Christmas was to Tom. He throws a terrific party that's brassy, classy and warmly nostalgic. Jazz diva Ella Fitzgerald cooks with the Count Basie chestnut Good Morning Blues before she and Tom share the stage. You'll experience a lovely Chelsea Morning courtesy of Judy Collins, and ballet at its finest when the legendary Rudolf Nureyev and Merle Park perform the Pas De Deux from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite. In his poignant reading of A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas, Tom goes home for the holidays as the Treorchy Male Choir provides a backdrop of seasonal favorites. And after grabbing the microphone for his mini concert, Tom quickly moves from warm and fuzzy to hot and sexy. Tom's got charisma - which almost sounds like "Christmas!"

"...could be viewed as pure kitsch, but the terrific musical performances really raise it to another level.  A.J. Carson, TVDVDReviews.com
