B.J. Thomas

B.J. Thomas: Complete Scepter Singles 2CD-Set ORDER NOW!

• 46 Tracks–the Most Comprehensive B.J. Thomas Collection Ever Assembled!

• Includes All 19 of His Scepter Hits, Including "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" and "Hooked on a Feeling"

• Features 11 Rare, Non-LP Single Sides

• Notes by Mike Ragogna Include Quotes from B.J. Himself

From his 1966 recording of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” through his 1972 double-sided hit single “That’s What Friends Are For”/Happier Than the Morning Sun,” B.J. Thomas enjoyed a string of hits rivaled by few artists of the era, and the fact that he did it for an independent label, Scepter, makes his achievement even more impressive. Various compilations of B.J.’s Scepter sides have come and gone, but never one quite like this: this double-CD set includes the A and B-side of EVERY SINGLE B.J. cut for the label (minus two duplicate B-sides), 46 tracks in all including all 19 hits he scored for the label. And don’t forget, with all those B-sides, you’re getting a bunch of rare, non-LP single sides (11 of ‘em, to be exact). Add notes by Mike Ragogna featuring fresh quotes from the artist and photos and you’ve got the most comprehensive B.J. Thomas compilation ever released!
