Another tune from the 2009 Hoboken Spring Arts & Music Festival in Hoboken, New Jersey! This time The Box Tops perform their only flower power hit "Neon Rainbow." Watch this at your own risk as it "may induce flashbacks" ...
TV horror-host John Zacherley's "Disc-O-Teen" 1967 Halloween dance party episode, featuring an appearance by The BOX TOPS. Alex Chilton and the band don't actually perform, but their hit single "The Letter" is played twice during the dance show. The band endures Zach's jibes, including lessons on how to flirt with teenage girls from New Jersey. The Box Tops chat it up with the horror-host while they plug their album, an upcoming European tour and a show at the Cheetah Club in NYC!
