Chips Moman and Dan Penn split up in 1969, and Moman took direct charge of the Box Tops, taking no guff from Alex Chilton. Wayne Carson collected another gold record for his shelf.

Note the key change from A to E at 1:12 for the Middle 8 and the brilliant way Carson gets back to A Major at 1:31. This song is a masterpiece.

The Box Tops: “Soul Deep”

This marked the end of the Box Tops and Alex Chilton’s work with Chips Moman. Years later, Chilton would form a band, Big Star, that would explore some of the Hot Country territory he had missed by getting on the wrong side of Moman. In a typically pigheaded move, Chilton insisted that his early records, recorded in the UK, not be sold in the US. Afficionados of Chilton had to buy bootlegged editions of his albums for a number of years.

Chilton died in 2010 at the age of 59, still showing total disrespect for his fans.

Taps Played for 15 forgotten Vets today as their ashes were identified and placed in the Southern Arizona Veteran Memorial Cemetery with full military Honors before a large crowd of citizens.

We were told that the ashes of 1000 more vets have been ID’d.

When you’re an established hit songwriter, a lot of material that might otherwise be forgotten gets recorded. Wayne Carson doesn’t include this in his official list of songs, which is unfortunate, because it’s one of his better entries. This song was a regional hit in the South in the summer of 1969 and deserves a listen. Carson had nothing to be ashamed of.

Merging Traffic: “Bit by Bit”

What a day! I only worked 2 hours, but GOOD GRIEF!! I was a bit late cuz I had to clear what I was working on, but the timing getting to the blood draw place was flexible. It was sorta funny.

My Mom can’t see well enough to fill out paperwork, so as I filled it out for her, my Dad was working on his and not hearing the lady’s question. Got both squared away, their blood work done by the nicest lady.

Then trouble as they worked on getting back into the car. My Mom’s knees buckled as she was partially on the running board. My Dad hasn’t the strength to help, so I rushed around. Got her lowered to the ground, rested a few minutes, and worked together to get her up and finally in the car. She pretty much only goes out to get her hair cut, but I think I’m going to have to think seriously about maybe a mini-van...the suburban is just too hard to get into. My Dad is tall enough to sit on the edge of the seat and work at getting his legs in....not so for my Mom. Then off to the DMV to get a state ID card for her so we could get her signature notarized (we tried yesterday to no avail as her driver’s license was expired).

I had to help her out of the car and into the DMV...very crowded, but got good seats for them while I found the proper paperwork and got it filled out. I was able to talk to the lady calling “next” and explain the mobility issue and that we would wait past our turn to get the station closest to the picture taking station.

Exited with a brand spanking new ID card. Now off to drop a bag of stuff off at one of their friends.

Then to the credit union to get her signature notarized. Another getting out of and into the car, but with help we managed. She said, I’m ready to go home! Got everything done on their list, but she wants to stay home, and was already feeling the effects of the “fall”. I will pick up their test results when ready.

Mark James had been signed by Chips Moman as a songwriter, and in 1969 he produced his first hit for close friend Billy Joe Thomas. That eight bar intro is absolute perfection. This is a good hint of what Hot Country was to become.

B. J. Thomas: “Hooked on a Feeling”

The measure of a song’s success is whether it lives on beyond its first recording. Jonathan King had a good run in the UK, but only one song, “Everyone’s Gone to the Moon”, became an American hit. King recorded James’ song in 1971 and was the first to add the “ooga-shocka-ooga-ooga” to the lyric line.

Jonathan King: “Hooked on a Feeling”

In 1974, Blue Swede followed up on King’s recording and made it a worldwide hit all over again.

Chips Moman gave Mark James the placement of a lifetime when he assigned a song of his to Elvis Presley in 1969. It became a monstrous hit and showed that Elvis was back for real. This was to be the high water mark for James until 1972 when he teamed with Wayne Carson for musical immortality.
