Biography

“It’s been a wild ride, that’s for sure,” admits Eli “Paperboy” Reed, looking back at the incredible journey that took the boyish-looking yet preternaturally mature soul belter from a Boston high school band room to a Mississippi Delta juke joint, from Sunday morning gigs behind the organ at a tiny South Side Chicago church to headlining the coolest clubs in ...

5.0 out of 5 stars THE REBIRTH OF "REAL" SOUL! 19 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have read some pretty patronisisng reviews of this album in "some" of the British Press, sneering over their intelectual arrogance at the fact that this record is deeply influenced by the soul sound of the 60's and early 70's.

THAT'S A BAD THING? No, no it isn't!!! Eli and his amazing tight band The True Loves have produced yet another feel good, foot stomping, straight from the heart soul album. ALL music is derivitive in some way, there are only so many chords you can play, so if you are gonna draw influence from anywhere, why not the uplifting honesty and soaring emotion of the "real" soul of Stax etc., that filled the airwaves with joy in the 60s and 70s?

Eli is singing a style of music that has always been graced by amazing singers, such as Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett et al, and the fact that he will face comparison with those legends makes him a very brave man to tackle this style of music in his own original songs. And boy, does he pull it off. The voice is great, whether he is tenderley whispering his thoughts on keeping a steady happy relationship in "Pick Your Battles", or when he fully rips it up with a very impressive soul scream reminiscent of James Brown on the final track "Explosion".

Stand outs for me would be "Just Like Me", "I Found You Out", "Time Will Tell" and the single "Come And Get It".

He makes you feel good, he makes you dance, he takes you back to a time when music was "home-made" and from the heart. Go and see him live and you will be completely blown away!

I hope this is the start of a massive soul revival, and that in the years to come, Eli is seen as a standard bearer of the rebirth of soul!

By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I agree that this is a smoother record than "Roll With You" but for me this is very much a good thing - I think that both Eli and the band sound less shrill and more relaxed and self-assured, which gives a much more authentic sound. Mike Elizondo, who has previously worked with Dr. Dre, Eminem and 50 Cent, seems an odd choice as producer but I think he does an excellent job and resists the temptation to add any hip-hop/rap stylings. I also found the songs here more original than the 60s soul clones on "Roll With You". I particularly liked the slow soul ballad "Time Will Tell", the rocking "Tell Me What I Wanna Hear" and the Soul Stirrers-style gospel of 'You Can Run On'. Eli and the band also tackle smooth Motown northern soul, southern Stax-style soul and on the closer "Explosion" James Brown-style funk.

This is a really good album that has fully realised the potential of "Roll With You".

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought I'd missed someone in the 1960s! 30 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first heard Eli Reed on the radio, I thought I was listening to an 'oldie' from my 1960s soul days, when I listened to nothing but Motown, Stax and Atlantic etc following such artistes as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, James Carr plus many others. So I was surprised, when I researched, to find that Eli Reed is a modern noughties boy, brought up on Gospel Music like the greats of the past.If you love your soul and Motown, you'll love this CD especially the tracks 'Come and Get It', 'Young Girl' and 'Name Calling'. Honestly, you'll think you're listening to someone from that marvellous decade that I and others of my generation were lucky enough to experience. The price is good too!

3.0 out of 5 stars A very good soulful album, but lacks longevity 20 Jun 2010
By Mr. M. L. Hawes VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I heard 'Come and Get it' from a compilation CD and knew that I had to investigate further.

Eli has a superb voice number one, back in the traditions of Al Green, Percy Sledge and dare I say it the Young Stevie Wonder. Tied up with the better songs on this album it makes for a winning combination that's pretty much irresistable.

My only question is its longevity. I've been through the album 5 times or so now and the stand out tracks really are crackers ( I wont name them to annoy those who'd only take the odd number as downloads ) but for me there are one or two fillers that just don't quite hack it.

But, having said that overall it is a very satisfying and genuinely exciting listen that doesn't ape the 60's soul sounds of Motown and Philly, but adds a bit of naughties magic.

Definitely a worthy purchase and a lovely compliment to any music lovers collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars New/Familiar 1 May 2014

This is a guy with a superb voice, the production is excellent. The whole feel of the album is of familiarity (old Tamla/Soul) but all original songs which become immediately favourites!

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern take on a 60's sound 24 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
This recording could have been made 50 years ago - but it wasn't, and that makes all the difference. Think James Brown meets Otis Reading. The energy, the sentiment, the voice: Eli has it all.
