The Box Tops - Cry Like a Baby

I've seen "The Letter" a whole bunch, and the Big Star stuff (and "Alex Chilton," of course) but I don't think I've seen anyone who did this one. Maybe because there just isn't a decent video on youtube but hey, a cat liked this one, so who am I to argue? It's still pretty mind-boggling that that's a teenager singing.

Otis Redding is another guy whose voice belies his age, but not nearly so much as here. What's strange is that Chilton sounds younger when he's fronting Big Star.

Big Star, incidentally -- pretty awesome. Who knew?

This would be a great opportunity for someone to link a few Big Star albums back home in the OGL.

(Just sayin')

Tyler already did. It's in the music thread.
