Eli "Paperboy" Reed & The True Loves

Master AUD recording

**mp3 samples provided (as always) in the Comments section**

Here's another nice recording thanks to our main man, Tony (a/k/a imageman2005). I previously shared a June 2010 Paperboy show from the North Star Bar that Tony recorded, and compariing the two shows, the setlist is unfortunately pretty similar. However, if you don't have the June 11 show already, then this one should do the trick.

For the uninitiated, Eli "Paperboy" Reed & The True Loves sound reminiscent of the R&B/Soul greats from yesteryear: Smokey Robinson, Wilson Pickett, Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Al Green, etc. The only "catch" is that Eli's a white, 20-something Jewish kid from Brookline, Massachusetts.

As I wrote on the earlier torrent, Eli "Paperboy" Reed & The True Loves aren't necessarily ORIGINAL, but their music sure is a lot of fun! Check 'em out!

** Editing (of WAV file):
1) Used Nero's wave editor to: (1) add a small fade-in/fade-out on the first/last tracks, (2) remove a few small "pops" in the first two tracks, and (3) raised the overall volume of the entire show

If you like the show, please post a comment on the show's board. It takes a lot longer to record and share a show than it does to download one. And once again please consider thanking imageman2005 for recording and sharing this nice show with all of us.
