Green, Green Grass of Home Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

With Green, Green Grass of Home, Tom Jones began to abandon his teenage pop audience to concentrate on a more mature, middle of the road group of listeners. Although he did include uptempo R&B numbers like "Kansas City," and the album's strongest moments occurred when he concentrated on standards and country tunes like the title track, "My Mother's Eyes," and "That Old Black Magic," or when he turned in laidback soul songs like "Any Day Now." The album was still inconsistent, as Jones over-sang several of the tracks, but it was easily the best album he had recorded to date.
