Here’s something really cool from LP cover lover, Anthony Hulme: Hi Matthew, This is reportedly the earliest recording by the late Joe Cocker. Joe came from Sheffield, England and Sheffield University produced this EP of local bands in 1967 during University Rag Week in order to raise funds for local charities. The tracks on the EP were recorded at ‘The Mojo’ a Sheffield nightclub founded by Pete Stringfellow. (He of ‘Stringfellows’, London fame). The rest is history.

The Letter The Box Tops EMI/Stateside Records (Australia) (1967) Nice cover art for this huge #1 song sung by 16 year-old Alex Chilton. Love that opening drumbeat and classic first line “Give me a ticket for an Aero-plane”! It’s been covered many times. I’m most fond of Al Green’s early recording.
