Mike,  You picked another Great one to cover!  Nice guitar tone.  What Chilton "thing" are you referring to?  I've been a fan of his since I was a teenager.  Seen him live a number of  times, including when he reformed The Box Tops in, (was it 2007?) - have to look it up.  Time passes so quickly.
While I was there checked some of the other tunes on your channel.  Listened to your Nilsson/Hartford track again.  Soothing over here in non-Smileyland.  A good get-away from all the negativity on the main board lately.  I'm trying not to go off on any rants, but the moaning gets to be a bit much.  Too many posters don't seem to like The Beach Boys much.
Anyway, you are definitely one of the best posting in the music section.  Did you write "It's You" or should I know that song?  Didn't say it was a cover.   Good Luck, and keep adding tracks.  peace Brother Woody, Will

EDIT:  Looked it up.  The Box Tops shows were 7 August 2005 at The Ulster County Fair in New Paltz, NY.  2 shows, I stayed for both.

Thanks Will. Its for a tribute radio show broadcast every year around the anniversary of Alex's death. I think the "It's You" you are referring to was written by another Mike who posts as "FOTM".
