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.”

Finally, check out some press praise that our boy has been getting with the new record.

“Recognition flashes might suggest Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett or Sam Cooke but this is absorption and re-imagination not imitation. Surrounded by punchy horns [and] crackling guitar licks… this is one Paperboy who delivers” – Mojo

“By giving 60s soul a White Stripes like no-nonsense makeover he’s made an unholy racket that sounds like Rocket From The Crypt in a barroom brawl with the James Brown Band” – Classic Rock

“His voice has become a powerhouse somewhere between Al Green and Otis Redding… the horn-filled arrangements, his driving Stax-fuelled band and that voice carry him through” – Q

“Irresistible. And boy, the fellow can sing” – Uncut
