Music today has been The Box Tops – Cry Like a Baby (1968). The first time Alex Chilton appeared to the mainstream public with the debut Box Tops album The Letter/Neon Rainbow (1967) and their No. 1 single The Letter, followed only four months later by Cry Like a Baby. He was just 16 years old and singing hit records. We all know what happened next. I saw him live twice over the years, both times in New York and years apart, both times the shows had few people. The last time I saw him, he said “This is a Michael Jackson song…no really” and he sang Rock with You (written by The Invisible Man, Rod Temperton)
