Happy 45th Anniversary of our 1st meeting, should be around about this time over here as you were having a TV Interview. Do you remember what I said to you when you signed my programme? I was only teasing you. I know you remember. Little did I know sitting talking with you and Joe that it would change my life forever, even though I already knew I would meet you at some point in my life due to the LP incident 3 years before. Here I am, back in the same place, a place I really do not like. I am sorry I wrote that letter to you, regarding my friend, I was so very shocked. Seems it was food poisoning, all very sad. Are you angry with me again? hope not. I am off to bed as it is getting late, every night, I must get to bed earlier, time difference! Well my beloved look after yourself, I do so hope I will see you one of these days. Be happy, stay healthy, keep singing. I've always only loved you, I know you do not believe me but it is the TRUTH xxxx

Hello my darling, Thought I had better check in. Have had a pretty awful week as Carl the man I met at the Guest House when I came over from South Africa and helped him out with food and litter for his cat, was found dead in his flat. The lady owner of the Guest House phoned me and gave me the horrible news. We have always stayed in touch all of us. She told the Police that I would be able to assist them as Carl and I chatted all the time. He is the person who helped me with the computer when I never knew what to do. I spent a few hours with the Police and they said that I had given them a lot of info. Carl does not have any relatives in this country and it then fell on my shoulders to go and identify him. Not a nice thing to have to do but he wasa good friend to me and I wanted to say a farewell to him. I also went with Catherine to the SSPCA where the Police have taken Martin, Carl's beautiful cat, at least he came out when he heard my voice, he is very timid and I am not allowed animals in this flat. I am so very sad about poor Carl and poor Martin. Catherine and I will probably never know what happened to Carl and I will never know where Martin is as we are not relatives. I will write again soon as 20th May is our Anniversary Sunday 45years ago exactly, can you believe it. PLEASE take good care of yourself and remember I have always loved you xxxx

Hello My Darling, At last I can drop you a line. Been so busy with this move, a lot to organize and 'am pretty tired. Do hope everything well with you and your back much better. No I never saw that in the press, perhaps this area did not print it. I am sure if it had appeared here that one of my close relatives or Sandra my friend would have informed me, as they all knew how I felt for you and still do. Why are you still disbelieving me? I have told you the truth and the letter I wrote to you and handed in to the Stage Door girl at Kings Theatre 2016 covered many of the unusual happenings I experienced from the moment I took that LA Breakdown Album in my hand 1970 and all the strange things that happened thereafter, well, not all but almost all. The girl told me, after the Show, that you had received it, did you or did you not get it? Seems you never receive my letters or my card and letter I sent to The Palladium 2013 for our 40th Anniversary of our first meeting. I did not know it was farewell tour till I came back to this dreary place Oct.30th 2013.If you are not receiving my letters, where do they go? Anyway, you can take a dig at me, I know my nature and I sure do not have a Wooden Heart, far from that my darling, I am a very gentle person and who knows one day you may discover that for yourself. Tank you for all the wonderful songs oh I see I have said tank you instead of Thank you it must be the Irish coming out in me. I am not Irish but I was educated in Northern Ireland, Bangor County Down great place so much music around then and I attended a marvellous Private College. Those were really happy years I had my Drama, Dancing, Ballet, Tap and Acrobatic and I played piano, then I was whisked away to darkest Africa due to my brother's ill health. My Mother hada sister in Northern Rhodesia now Zambia, I was 13yrs old, that was a shock to me, a Bush town, however, Douglas my brother's health improved rapidly which was a blessing. Dry heat did the trick. I do not know why I am writing all this stuff to you, oh well you know me a bit ridiculous. So my beloved, please take good care of yourself and are you laughing now 'Cause I'm not xxxxxxxxxxx

March 3rd. Palm Desert

You just knew it promised to be a special night - from the moment one entered the foyer of the McCallum Theatre, with 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK' emblazoned across its walls, to the rapturous welcome Jack received when he strolled onstage to join Christian, Kendall, Chris, 'Wild Man' Paul, and on keyboard, special guest for the evening, Bill (son of Harpo) Marx.
EVERYBODY was clearly ready for a party, and Party we did!
Following his opening 'Sound of Music' medley, Jack quipped of having 'Sung For His Supper' for nigh on sixty years, and then proceeded to do so once again!
He featured several tracks from Seriously Frank including, of course, 'All Or Nothing At All', which thundering climax continuously brings audiences to their feet, as do favourites 'Without A Song' and 'Man From La Mancha'.
Naturally, with Gavin MacLeod (Captain Stubing) present, Jack tipped his cap and rocked the theatre with 'The Love Boat'.
'Where Is Love' has been a recent addition to Jack's regular programme, and this evening he also introduced the 1929 Neil Moret ballad 'She's Funny That Way', a song he'd included during the recent UK Birthday Tour. Another insert was the Brazilian-originating 'Morning of the Carnival', best known as 'A Day in the Life of a Fool'. Featured on the 1966 album Jack Jones Sings, Jack's interpretation was critically-lauded as one of the best ever!
And from the 'Liverpool album he gave us 'Dio Como Ti Amo (God, How I love You)'. This song was composed by Domenico Modugno who, incidentally, also sang it as the Italian entry in the 1966 Eurovision Song Contest.
Jack has long said that both his and Eleonora's favourite love song is Michel Legrand's 'What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life', and how it shows, for his delivery nigh on 'cracks', so steep is the emotion. He then sang another Legrand classic, the 1966 Oscar-nominated 'I Will Wait For You', originally from the French Musical, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
'Love Theme From The Sandpiper': a Johnny Mandel composition from the 1965 film of the same name, it won both a Grammy and an Oscar. It's been recorded by EVERBODY, Jack included, from Jack Sheldon's trumpet solo to the Central Band of The Royal British Legion! WE know the song as 'The Shadow of Your Smile. Jack and Christian's current arrangement of that classical and oh so romantic ballad, far surpasses ANY of the other one-hundred-plus versions already out there. It's the best that I and many others whom I spoke to, have ever heard. To me personally, it was the highlight of Jack's programme.
Back down amongst his audience, Jack belted out his own 'I Am a Singer', and on its powerful conclusion, Eleonora and daughter Nicole came on stage, wheeling a huge birthday cake that had Jack's portrait iced across its top. They then led the entire theatre, ushers an' all, into a cheery, celebratory chorus of 'Happy Birthday'.
An emotional moment indeed; one which clearly moved Jack. Amongst so many fans and friends, there was but one song with which he could close the evening out: Paul Williams' 'Isn't That What Friends Are For?', and those of us familiar with the lyrics attempted to keep tune and join in!
A truly memorable evening with Jack's voice performing mind-boggling acrobatics!
An evening, which if recorded would have made for a great CD but.... as a DVD, we'd all be enthusing on a MUST-BUY'!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK!

Hello Darling, Hoping all ok with you and your family. I am moving flats this week the lady owner is selling so have had to find yet another place. I have got something not really me, but will have to do. I really wish I had not sold my home in South Africa, should have thought it through more and found another way to come to you, I really have lost so much in this overly expensive UK it's a Con Country believe me. I shall miss listening to my nightly numbers of you for a little while until Sky comes and sets it all up again. Move on 11th that's if I make it, I am so so very tired, hope I make it. Darling when I said if only you had said something I meant when we were in the HALEM Towers Sheffield. I was there 4 nights and the last night standing in front of you a hint would have been good, oh dear what a mix up and more to follow. Just know I would NEVER have done that, why would I lose the person I love most in the whole World - would that make sense No it wouldn't I need to come and talk to you and I don't know how to do that. There must be a way as I believe that you and I both have the right to know the Whole Truth and should anything happen to me before that happens, just know that I did not See the last section until the M8 and it was 1year later that I heard and I came to the Palladium but I was too late and so it goes on and still does.I told you once I would always be here (in the World) for you and that has Never altered and I am here in this World only for you, this is always in my heart.1970 that LP LAB came into my life and changed it forever. I would never hurt you my love forgive my ignorance and to think that all I ever wanted was to be happy with the man I love, how terrible is that so close and it takes decades to get the truth but at least we now know the truth' That is very important. Thanks for all the great shows, oh and you have a wonderful laugh On The Move T.BENN. As for the Wooden hearted Princess on Smothers is that me ? I would love to come and Smother you with my love. You take very good care of yourself from me to you babe xxxxxx

Hello my dearest, I do hope that the pain in your back has subsided and you are managing to cope. It is a terrible thing to deal with constant pain. I was very concerned about you at the Perth and Glasgow Shows but glad you have someone to care for you. Wish I could have cared for you all these years, if only I had known something, anything, but alas I did not. Never knew it reached that level with the other party. I think that is why I have been brought back to this dastardly little place, so dismal, dank and obviously I do not like it, however had I not come back I would have remained in the dark till I perished. I am glad I know things now and I have seen you again, other than that I have had a horrible existence here. I did not come to see you to upset you or your life, I was compelled to, purely due to my feelings for you. I was so happy to see you in Feb. and you sure came through for all your Fan's even with the pain and cold. I am about to move again early next month. The lady owner of this flat is selling it, so have to move, but, I was going to move anyway as this place is freezing never been so cold in my life, quite frankly I do not know how I have survived the Winter here. Got a flat in view, not really me but it will have to do, a big difference to my home in South Africa, should not have sold it, silly me. Oh well, will not be able to have my wonderful evenings listening to you until I get it all organized again, here's hoping. So my beloved please take good care of yourself and stay strong, Your one and onlyxxx

I am leaving for Palm Springs in the morning, (2-26) so I can be there Saturday for the show at the McCallum. I was invited to your after-party in the green room two years ago and I was hoping I could get an invitation again this year. I was going to piggy back on your invite from last time but when I started typing on it, it vanished. Technology! The reason I still had that old Email was because I was going to thank you and say how much I enjoyed the show, but there just were not words to say how wonderful I thought it was, how your voice has gotten so much stronger over the years. I was tongue tied for TWO YEARS. And I think I did embarrass myself when I met Jack. I was a babbling idiot. Guess I never grew out of the star struck stage. I'm sure you won't sing "If you ever leave me" huh. I consider that to be like honey being poured over velvet.
Looking forward!w

Mr. Jones,
20 years ago in June you appeared in Hamilton Ontario. My wife's 50th birthday was spent at your show where she was pictured with you. She will be 70 this year and with her friend she left Canada for your show in Glasgow next week. They have seen your shows in Glasgow, Toronto and Hamilton Ontario over a span of 30+ years. It would give her and her friend the ultimate surprise if there was any way to acknowledge their presence at the Glasgow show next Monday. Jennifer and Maude (Scotish and Irish) both live just outside Toronto, Canada.
I have also been a great fan of you and the music you make. ( Bread LP is my favourite).
Happy Birthday . Enjoy your tour in Scotland my home country.

Have just come home from your Malvern show. Wonderful. This is Catherine Howe. I wrote a song back in 74 which you might know called Harry. It was your and Andy Williams and Bobby Scott's work which set me off. Thanks for a great great show.
