Tommy James - Hold The Fire

How many musicians are not only surviving but thriving after 40 years in the business? Well, you can count Tommy James as part of the latter category. James' first record "Hanky Panky" ravaged the charts back in 1966. He followed that up with a string of gold and platinum records like "Mony Mony", "Crystal Blue Persuasion", "Ball and Chain", "Draggin' the Line", "Crimson and Clover" among many. His music has never lost its importance as it is constantly in demand for soundtracks such as Austin Powers, Apollo 13 and Forrest Gump.

James' latest record is another solid lineup of great rock 'n' roll songs. His songwriting has not diminished with time as this set proves the well is not dry. The title track is a compelling piece that shows James is in quite good voice as well. "Isn't That the Guy" is a hooky piece with a rhythm that goes straight for the hips. "Love Words" is one of those gorgeous slow cuts that James does so well. 


Not merely a retro set from another '60s star, Hold the Fire is a terrific record that would be of interest to anybody who likes great Adult Oriented Rock delivered by a guy who still has the goods.

Lupe and Joe

Music legend Tommy James has 23 gold singles, 9 platinum albums, and over 100 million records sold worldwide. Over 300 artists, including everyone from Bruce Springsteen and R.E.M. to Kelly Clarkson and Broken Bells, have covered his songs! Hold the Fire, his first new studio album in 10 years, features three Top 5 A/C hits: “Hold The Fire,” “Love Words,” and “It Keeps On Goin’.”
