Listening to Now: Tom Jones and Chieftans - The Tennessee Waltz

By Richard K. Barry

The Long Black Veil is an album released by the Chieftans on Dec. 31, 1995. It contains songs performed by a number of well known artists accompanied by the band. Participating artists include Sting, Marianne Faithful, Ry Cooder, Mark Knopfler, Van Morrison and the Stones.

CD Universe:
"Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?," performed with Van Morrison, won a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals. The Long Black Veil was nominated for a 1996 Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.

I've always liked this Tom Jones collaboration on "Tennessee Waltz," much as I am surprised by that. The song was written in 1946 by Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King and, of course, made famous by Patti Page.
