I am a Djay for a comeback radio show. It's always hit & miss checking out all the comebacks of older bands. This one was a big positive surprise. I like their sound now better than in the 60's, with the exception of the masterpiece"The Letter." The first 4 tracks of this album are super. Wang Dang Doodle is a great blues song that I liked by Koko Taylor and the Box Tops do a terrific version of it here. As I was listening to the album and enjoying it all I thought that the only thing I hoped they'd do is put a more hard rockin jam song in tthe mix, and then they gave me just that with the last track of 6 minutes called Big Bird. I play this album quite a lot and have played 9 of the tracks on my radio show. I've gotten very good feedback about the songs. The Box Tops are still touring and one more album would be nice. This is a great addition to their catalog of great music.

The band has chosen great songs and performs with infectiously high spirits. This album does not revisit the Box Tops; rather, it frees them to truly enjoy the music without the constraints imposed on the band in the '60s. It's looser than Alex's recent solo work, but in the same general vein. Highlights are "It Tears Me Up" and "Flying Saucers Rock and Roll" and "Big Bird" and...forget it; they're all good.

I just found this cd in the cutout bins. Man, what a pleasant surprise this album was! In 1996 The Box Tops got back together after over 25 years apart for this reunion, and they play here like they've never been apart. Alex Chilton sings with what seems like a renewed confidence in his voice, and belts these 14 tunes out like nobody's bidness. Everything here is oldies stuff that ranges from rock n roll, to rockabilly, to rhythm and blues and soul. The album starts out and gets your attention quick with a very energetic version of "Flyin' Saucers Rock N Roll". They do a couple r&b tunes with "I'm In Love" and "Ain't That A Lot Of Love", which sounds a lot like early Mitch Ryder. And speaking of Ryder, they do a very nice version of his song "Little Latin Lupe Lu". Chilton gets down with his bad self and tries out some soul on "Soothe Me", and the beautiful "It Tears Me Up", where he really shows off some impressive tonsils. One of rockers on the album, and my favorite, is a very wicked version of "Wang Dang Doodle". This song has never sounded this good to me before. And neither have the Box Tops. It's great to see a band come back after this much time off, and not just go through the motions. These guys rock, and it's obvious by the music on here, that they had a blast tearing up these oldies. I love this disc! It has stayed in the number #1 slot in the cd changer for a long time now, and doesn't wannna leave. And for that reason alone, this merits 5 stars.

This is not a release from the Box Tops hey-days in the late 1960s... instead the band got back together and knocked off a bunch of cover songs (including a new version of "The Letter")... it isn't bad, but it isn't great, either... I probably won't listen to it again after the initial listen.

The Box Tops new CD, and may I say first release in many too many years, recaptures those same good time feelings that seemed to permeate the late 60s. The music, mostly covers, is exceptionally well executed and Alex sounds more focused than he has in years. If you were the Box Tops fan that I was ( if you're over 45 years old how could you not be )you owe it to yourself to get a copy of this new recording.

As a fan of music from the 60's, this CD takes me back to the Memphis scene, with a new enthusiam. It perfectly captures the feel of that era, with humor, and a soulful honesty. Alex rocks! And it's great to hear the Memphis Horns again.
