One of the early Blue Eyed Soul bands was Memphis, Tennessee’s The Box Tops though there were many who would not classify them in that genre. Too many, the Box Tops were simply melodic Pop songs, but to those who listened a little more to their music they found a true soulful style of Pop that still seems so disrespected today. The Box Tops was the launching point for Alex Chilton, whose band Big Star remains the most revered Pop band in music history. However, should the Hall feel that they want to induct Chilton in some capacity it may come with the Box Tops; though we haven’t seen any concrete evidence that they are looking to induct Chilton at all.
