About this release

This new ‘Best Of’ collection gathers together twelve highlights from across the Box Tops’s career.

Formed in Memphis in 1967, the Box Tops were fronted by Alex Chilton (who later went on to lead Big Star) and are best known for their blue-eyed soul and psychedelic pop-rock sound on hits including ‘The Letter’, ‘Cry Like A Baby’, ‘Choo Choo Train’ and ‘Soul Deep’. Alongside those classic singles, this new collection also includes a selection of lesser known fan favourites including ‘Neon Rainbow’, ‘Sweet Cream Ladies, Forward March’, and their cover of Procol Harum’s ‘Whiter Shade Of Pale’.

Pressed on 140g black vinyl and housed in a printed inner sleeve featuring new liner notes by Alan Robinson. Also available as a comprehensive 2CD edition.
