The last decade has seen a surge in soul revivalists. Eli "Paperboy" Reed's music is a throwback to classic Stax records from the 60s. Objectively, his voice can be a bit weak by those standards. I'm not sure that Reed would've been allowed to record back in Stax's hayday. But as a whole the album really works. The tempos are varied, & the production is just lowfi enough to simulate the sound of the 60s. Highly entertaining.
