Sunday shorts: The Letter

Apparently Alex Chilton was only 16 when they recorded this. Imagine that. His voice sounds older.


  1. 55 years on and Alex could look almost contemporary (not so much the rest of them). There was pre-1967 and post 1967 when everything changed. One of the things that struck me about the Get Back mini-series was that the Beatles looked a lot like some of the bands of today in terms of the hair/clothes (George had some wacky outfits - shiny pink suit and furry boots) and of course the remastered film made it so current.

    Great song too.

    1. You're right about Alex, and I thought the same about Get Back too. I guess fashions change but cool is always cool...
