Memphis’ Box Tops tore in and out of pop consciousness between 1967 and 1971. This superb collection documents the young blue-eyed soul group’s ride, from hit-song wonders ( Cry Like a Baby, The Letter, and Soul Deep ) to glorious near-misses (especially the chugging Choo Choo Train and beautiful takes on Dylan’s I Shall Be Released and Lee Dorsey’s People Gonna Talk ). It’s easy to marvel at the teenaged Alex Chilton, whose cigarette-husky voice sounded like it belonged to a years-older black soul shouter.

The number one classic "The Letter" features the amazing and distinctive vocals of Alex Chilton sadly no longer with us. The Box Tops songs remind us of the great and fun times of the sixties.
