Out Of Stock


4.60 10

The complete series of singles singer BJ Thomas cut for Scepter from the 1966 to 1972 – a pretty great overview that not only serves as a terrific anthology – it also shows the depth of styles managed to cover with resounding creative success, whether the singles charted or not! BJ is best remembered by the mainstream for the electric sitar-flavored pop treasure "Hooked On A Feeling" and inescapable "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" – but overall, his approach is a great combination of 60s pop, soul and cosmopolitan country – with down home charm anchoring his soaring voice. 46 tracks on 2CDs! "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "Your Tears Leave Me Cold", "Hooked On A Feeling", "Human", "The Eyes Of A New York Woman", "I'ts Only Love", "Pass The Apple Eve", "Everybody's Out Of Town", "Never Had It So Good", "I Get Enthused", "The Mask", "Mighty Clouds Of Joy", "Long Ago Tomorrow", "I Get Enthused", "We Have Got To Get Our Ship Together" and many more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
