Eli "Paperboy" Reed is a soul frontman of the old school, his singing full of dramatic yelps and howls. The young Boston man's voice evokes Otis Redding, yet he has a light touch that can seem oddly feminine. Here, he uses his burgeoning fame to draw attention to a nearly forgotten soul legend, Roscoe Robinson, whose potent gospel-soaked pipes earned him a spot in the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi.
