Soul Tracks review ELI ‘PAPERBOY’ REED

August 11, 2010

Soul Tracks have reviewed Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed’s album Come And Get It, in advance of the U.S release … and overall, they’re impressed!

They write:

“Over the past few years, Amy Winehouse and Sharon Jones have opened the door for retro artists like James Hunter, Duffy and Ryan Shaw to enter, but few have busted through with such effervescence and energy as Reed. For both classic R&B purists and folks looking for an out-of-the-ordinary escape, Come And Get It is the perfect title for a disc that is a joy from front to back. Recommended.”


Glad they see what we see in this record!

ELI talks to Blues & Soul

May 27, 2010

Check out this great new interview with Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed talking to our friends at Blues & Soul.

As ever, scribe Pete Lewis gets the most from the artists he interviews!

Here’s a choice excerpt:

“…when I was making ‘Come And Get It!’ I was listening to a lot of the late-Sixties/early-Seventies soul music from Chicago, like Tyrone Davis and Mel & Tim”, begins a knowledgeable Eli from his New York home: “So, while recording I was particularly going for the way that they were able to orchestrate those records back then and kind of balance out the really dirty, funky elements of the rhythm section – and sometimes the vocal – with the beautiful string sections, the horns and backing vocal harmonies. Which I always thought was really, really interesting.”
