Re: The Box Tops versus the Left Banke!

Box Tops. I thought they were much stronger music wise. I met these guys around 1967 at a meet and greet in the (gone but not forgotten) Great Eastern Mills store on Rt. 440 in Jersey City, NJ. This place was like a big box John's Bargain Store. A place definitely for families (like mine at that time) on a budget. They were signing copies of "The Letter".

Left Banke. Alex Chilton aside, Box Tops were more of vehicle or outlet for songwriter Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham's great output (Cry Like a Baby and The Letter, for instance). It didn't really afford members like Chilton creative outlet. Love Big Star, but Left Banke had songwriter Michael Brown. I like their instrumentation and minor keys.

Music Note Re: The Box Tops versus the Left Banke!

Box Tops for me. They have the deeper catalogue.
