The previous album by this white boy singin' soul music -- Roll With You -- was considered a Best of Elsewhere 2008 release but didn't quite make it into mainstream media or thinking.
This time around, for a slightly lesser album, he's been picking up big press . . . and again he certainly deserves it.
Here however he also breaks out the terrific horn section for a blistering r'n'b soul shouting on Just Like Me and Come and Get It (complete with James Brown throat-tearing shouts).
With a terrific band, a winning collection of originals (and a cover of the obscure Young Girl), Eli Paperboy Reed writes the headline large that soul music is in excellent and knowledgeable hands -- and in fine voice.
