iTunes Editors’ Notes

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. Devotees of Big Star will adore the early Chilton-penned numbers here too, such as the brassy-cool “Together” and the soul-psych popper “I See Only Sunshine.”

Customer Reviews

The Box Tops -1960's manna

With the recent passing of Alex Chilton, it brought to mind songs that are permanently etched in my brain...Cry Like a Baby and The Letter take me back to West Market Street in Philadelphia, with the sun filtering through the El tracks...there is nothing that will ever replace the sounds of 1960's AM radio and this stuff is the mother lode.

If you like the Rascals, you will love Alex Chilton!

Anyone who thinks this band is a one-hit wonder cannot count. I know, I know. The Letter. But if you listen to this album and don't find a new musical hero in Alex Chilton, then I will kill myself. Go ahead. I dare you. This is life and death.

Good Music!!! (please bring back the Box Tops)

Nothing brings back fond memories like old music, and the Box Tops take me back to my early teens, no worries and thanking God that I wasn't in Viet Nam! Get The Letter of course, but Soul Deep and Cry Like A Baby were just as great!!

During their brief lifespan, the Box Tops earned a reputation as one of the best blue-eyed soul groups of the '60s, even if their recorded legacy wasn't as large or consistent as, say, the Righteous Brothers or the Rascals. Today they're remembered not only for their smashes "The Letter" and "Cry Like a Baby," but as the launching pad for singer Alex Chilton, who went on to become one of rock's most revered cult figures thanks to his groundbreaking power pop unit Big Star. In his teenage years, Chilton...
