"The Letter" by the "Box tops" was one of the best CD's I think I have heard in a long...long time! Naturally, I was attracted to the CD because of their famous song, "The Letter," that just happened to be playing... as I waited for the helicopter to whisk me off that ancient LST that had been my home for an entire year in the Mekong Delta of S. Vietnam in August of 1968.

Not only was "The Letter" fondly remembered but every song on this CD is a work of Rocking-Soul that will take you back to time when words and music still went hand in hand.

This CD is well worth the price, and if you liked music from the 60's you won't be sorry you're ordered this one!! Buy it, Play it, and Enjoy it!!!

My copy of this has a different cover, but the same great music.I really believe the Box Tops were the most underated group of the 60's. The "Letter" brings back so many memories of girls, tight jeans, mini skirts and flower power, and VW vans. My favorite of all the Boxtops singles is "Neon Rainbow". It is a haunting melody,but the vocals were what I liked,that deep sulky voice of Alex Chilton was hypnotizing to a 15 yr. old boy, I never get tired of it. All of the songs are classics, "I Met Her In Church" is another truly great song. My album actually wore out after a few thousand plays, had to find another. Now I'm ready to listen a few thousand times more

Rock 'n' roll cult hero /'eccentric' Alex Chilton got famous leading The Box Tops (1967 - 70), but, sadly, 'artistic credibility' eluded him until
the debut album by Big Star (1972 - 75). Big Star recorded for the obscure Ardent label out of Memphis, sounded like 1966 AND the future, and are among the few groups worthy of membership in any r & r Hall Of Fame that NEVER cracked the Billboard Top 200 LP chart (Television and, less surprisingly, Pere Ubu also missed, by the way). Yes even "White Light/White Heat" climbed to #199, and several Captain Beefheart albums spent weeks in the # 100 - 200 neighborhood. This has never seemed quite right to me. Heck back when he was a critic Jon Landau famously, portentiously, wrote "I have seen the future of Rock and Roll and his name is Bruce Springsteen..." (quoted from memory), and you must understand kids actually READ rock 'n' roll writing in 1974, and Landau's line helped heighten expectations for the long-awaited Born To Run" (1975), the album that made Bruce a superstar (to this day can't listen to it myself). So why couldn't Lenny Kaye, Creem, Robert Christgau, Rolling Stone, etc help Big Star become big stars? And yet, something worked, sort of. Big Star were not only lavishly, and deservedly, praised in tha' day, but since "Third" was issued 30 years ago (in Europe first, natch) we've had tribute albums and a stream of cover versions (recall wishing it was the original 'September Gurls' getting all that airplay?), a song about Big Star by the Replacements recorded when THAT band was still "punk" AND at their popular peak. Post "Alex Chilton" scores of younger bands emrged who have clearly been touched by the rare, raw sensibility evident in nearly every song Big Star recorded.
