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.
