Delilah (Tom Jones)

Authentic Rude Boys Tom Jones' Murder Ballad version, feat. Antonio Sotera


Released in 1968, this powerful “murder ballad” earned to Tom Jones quite a lot of his popularity. Originally conceived in triple metre, we’ve straightened her up to normal quadruple and of course worked her out into our Skatalizer. So this is what she would have sounded like if it would have been conceived in Kingston Jamaica. The mighty Antonio Sotera and his accordion are the proper engraving to this massive dance cracker.
