1000 SONGS - DAY 208 SONG # 239

Day 208: A Song from my Childhood

My childhood was a time, when so many people now old or gone were still young. For example Alex Chilton, just 9 years older than me (which means he was 17 when he recorded the song featured here), who died in 2010. The Letter, a song by the Box Tops, Chilton's first(?) band, is a nice memory from my childhood:

The song has been covered by Joe Cocker on his Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour, spastic as he was, supported by some fine musicians, among them the cool guy on the piano, Leon Russell. Both of them were young in 1970, although not as young as poor me:
