Soul Deep / boxtops S5

Is Alex Chilton still alive? He did a killer demo cover "Jumpin' Jack Flash" when he was trying to revive his career after the Boxtops. Recorded it in a studio bathroom in Memphis right before he formed Big Star, named after a grocery store chain in the upper South.

The Big Star stores used to leave their produce in wooden display cases out front during the summer, which led to a lot of watermelons getting up and walking away in the middle of the night. Don't ask me how I know that.

Thanks! I just sent in my reception report now, I was going to wait until I had my recording ready but both YouTube and the Internet Archive are being uncooperative.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.
