Eli "Paperboy" Reed "Roll With You" (2008)

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.
