Alex Chilton - revered frontman for The Boxtops and Big Star - was always known to surprise his fans with the different directions he took over the years. Songs From Robin Hood Lane finds Chilton tackling a variety of numbers from the great American songbook. Many of the songs he learned from his jazz trumpeter/pianist father Sidney Chilton, while growing up in the Memphis suburbs in the 1950s. The 12-track collection features some of his most expressive singing from his time as a solo artist. This set includes four previously unreleased recordings and others that are quite rare. All have been out of print for some time. This is a great lazy Sunday afternoon record to listen to and curl up with someone you love.
