Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed & The True Loves – ‘It’s Easier’
I can’t quite believe what I’m hearing here. Not only is this a 2008 recording, but that geeky guy in the picture is responsible for that voice. Still only 24, Reed decided to give himself a crash course in the blues by way of Mississippi and Chicago, culminating in an album of impressively slick Rhythm & Blues numbers with The True Loves as his backing band.
