Reload is a 1999 album by Tom Jones. It contains fifteen duets with a range of artists including Van Morrison, Cerys Matthews, Stereophonics, Robbie Williams and Portishead, recorded with their usual record producers and in their usual studios. The tracks are mainly cover versions, with a new version of one of his own songs, "Looking Out My Window" (1968), and one original track, "Sex Bomb".
From 1969 until 1971, Jones had an internationally successful television show, This Is Tom Jones. Though his record sales tailed off during the mid-1970s, peaking in 1971 with his only US No. 1 hit, "She's A Lady", he remained a huge draw as a live performer. It proved a worldwide hit and won an MTV award.
A great song has all the key elements - melody; emotion; a strong statement that becomes part of the lexicon; and great production. Think of Bohemian Rhapsody, by Queen. It was the title track from an album intended to help his fans cope with the tragedy. The fundamental thing I hear from fans is, 'Man, you got me through' - whatever it is," he told Rolling Stone in 2002. And our parents are suddenly saying, 'Why are you taking drugs?'
