This is Tom Jones, indeed

A friend of mine is always linking to great music videos on Facebook. "Are you adequately prepared to rock?" he always asks.

I don't think anyone was adequately prepared for the awesomeness he posted tonight -- this 1969 pairing of Tom Jones and Janis Joplin on "Raise Your Hand." The memorable moment came in December of the second season of This Is Tom Jones, the singer's variety TV series that ran three seasons from 1969-1971.

Verily, I say unto thee, that the Lord hath smiled upon the soulitudinous, boogielicious union of the blackest white woman in Port Arthur, Texas, and the blackest white man in South Wales, and then He hath commandeth the angel choirs to hush up because all y'all just got to hear this.

Can I get a witness, y'all? Raise your hand!
