Song Of The Day

10/9/14 – The Box Tops – The Letter – 1967

The blue-eyed soul of 1967 was immortalised in this classic tune featuring future member of unsuccessful seventies cult band Big Star, Alex Chilton as a 16 year old singer with a raspy voice. The band are performing on the American TV show Upbeat out of Cleveland and cannot take it seriously (teenagers having fun). Hailing from […]

The Manfred Mann story is long and complex with different lead vocalists, different band members and different styles of music as the years went by. But by 1967 with Mike d’Abo as lead singer they were still seemingly effortlessly having hits even after Paul Jones their original and distinctive lead singer had left to go solo. The band was started by […]
