You did read that right.
It might sound odd on paper (or on screen) but in 1993, New Model Army did indeed team up with Tom Jones to record the Rolling Stones’ ‘Gimme Shelter’ for the charity Shelter.
…and here’s the proof!
When I interviewed NMA’s Justin Sullivan in 2009 he said that Tom Jones had been great to work with.
Musty write that interview up properly sometime.
Oh, and one of the other cover versions was…Samantha Fox and Hawkwind…
if anyone has an mp3 of this I would be eternally grateful.
