Writings and Notes from Art Jans' Collection,
including photographs and unrecorded lyrics.
Some more lyrics have been added.
Tom Jans' "When the Rebel Come home" is featured in the
in the 2009 film "Lonely Street" directed by Peter Ettinger and starring Jay Mohr.
The story is of an Elvis impersonator and Tom's song is performed in classic
Elvis style. Given Tom Jans' admiration of the Elvis version of "Loving Arms"
we are sure Tom would have loved this cover version of his song which was
originally released on "Champion".
When the Rebel Comes Home can be
heard on YouTube (link is live as at Sept 2010) The Executive music director of the
film is Danny Seraphine of The A's who recorded When the Rebel Comes Home on
the album "A Woman's Got The Power" in 1981. There is a
trailer for the
film (link is live as at September 2010)
