What In The World Does 1960′s Pop Music Group The ‘Box Tops’ Have To Do With Classic Country Music?

 

The Pop/Rock Band ‘The Box Tops’ will never be confused with The Beatles or The Rolling Stones.  But in the world of Pop Music in 1967 and 1968, they were one of the biggest Bands in the world, thanks to hit’s like the one above, ‘The Letter’.

They also had major hits with songs like ‘Cry Like A Baby’ and ‘Soul Deep’.  I’ll bet my Brother, a little older than me, probably had the Boxtops blaring from the radio in his 1958 Chevy at the time.

OK, that may be mildly interesting, but what in the world do they have to do with Classic Country Music??

Well, one of their hits was a song called ‘Break My Mind’, featured in the video below.  Give it a listen.
