About this release

This new ‘Best Of’ collection gathers together 30 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 fan favourites including ‘Neon Rainbow’, ‘Sweet Cream Ladies, Forward March’, the band’s cover of Procol Harum’s ‘Whiter Shade Of Pale’, and many more.

Includes 30 tracks across two CDs plus a 12-page booklet with photographs, and new liner notes by Alan Robinson. Highlights are also available on a 1LP vinyl edition.
