It's not Unusual, Tom Jones first big hit

It's not unusual for wannabe stars to shun conventional work so it's not surprising that Tom Jones is no exception. The staff of Pontypridd job centre has recently unearthed Jones' past unemployment record and it shows that the future star did not particularly like shift work, as he was holding out for his big break as a pop star. Luckily for him, he didn't have to wait too long because in 1964 after signing a deal with Decca Studios, Jones had his first hit, It's Not Unusual--- and the rest, as they say is history.
