AllMusic Review by Al Campbell

The Reader's Digest Tom Jones Collection gathers 91 songs from the balladeer's late-'60s and early-'70s catalog on Parrot Records. While the disc contains several classic moments including "It's Not Unusual," "Help Yourself," "I (Who Have Nothing)," and "Green Green Grass of Home," the selection is cluttered with B-sides and album tracks. The novice should start with the single disc The Best of Tom Jones on Polygram.
