  • A brief intro...
    Eli “Paperboy” Reed is a survivor. He was one of the first of the new wave of singers and songwriters to embrace unabashedly soulful music and he has been tearing up stages all over the world with his heart-stopping falsetto screams for close to a decade with no plans to slow down. From humble musical beginnings growing up outside of Boston, at 18 Reed moved to Clarksdale, Mississippi and cut his teeth playing and singing in juke joints all over the Delta. From there he took the well-trod path to Chicago where he spent a year as minister of music the Southside church of Soul legend Mitty Collier.   Soon after returning to Boston, he was bit by the songwriting bug and released his first full length, “Roll with You” in 2008. Reed’s combination of powerful soulful vocals coupled with his strong pop sensibility as a songwriter made people all over the world stand up and take notice. Soon there were calls coming in from everywhere; television shows in the UK, festivals in Australia, and a jaw-dropping schedule of national and international tour dates. Major record labels came calling, deals were signed and Reed’s star kept rising, now with the help of song placements in major movies, television shows and commercials. The albums “Come and Get it” (Capitol - 2010) and “Nights Like This” (Warner Brothers - 2014) went on to do more than $2.5 million in total licensing, while Reed and his crack band continued to wow audiences on five continents. In 2016, after some much-needed time off from the road, Reed returned to the studio to cut “My Way Home” (Yep Roc - 2016); an album that is at once back-to-basics and startlingly current. Now approaching the ten-year mark in his career and back in the studio to record his 6th full-length, Reed has improbably become an elder statesman of the genre, and he’s begun seeing new artists who are taking inspiration from his unique sound. A sound that, over everything else, prizes feeling, energy, and, yes, Soul.

  1. Hey all, I have a stack of 10 of these Major Lance handbills from 1969. 6'' x 9'' and look really nice in a frame. Since they're so light the shipping from the USA is only $6! $35 each plus shipping. Get em before they're gone!
  2. Mckinley Mitchell - You're Not Gonna Break My Heart One of the greatest of all time! Nice VG copy, some greying in the grooves but plays really strongly. Huge on a big system. Has drill hole but labels are otherwise nice and clean. $325 including worldwide shipping. Clip not mine
  3. Hey friends, My birthday is coming up this week and I'm asking for donations to help my friend and mentor Roscoe Robinson. Roscoe is 91 and still living on his own with very little help. He just needs some financial assistance for living expenses and basic medical care. I've started things off with a donation of $200 myself. Even if you don't know his music or his records, I urge you to please lend a hand. Thanks! - Eli https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-soul-legend-roscoe-robinson?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
  4. Vikki Styles - Tears Won't Stop Falling - Odex Rare and killer northern from Mississippi Condition on this isn't amazing. I'd say conservatively G+, but plays more like VG-. Honestly when the music comes in the crackle isn't really noticeable to my ears and I think it's still a good DJing copy. Asking $400
  5. Rare Texas Deep Soul Major Tones - Palladium VG+ $75
  6. Beautiful store stock copy of this classic Play grades at VG+ $350
  7. Taking offers on this incredible piece of Soul history! Bettye Swann / Buck Owens - Unreleased Acetate This is the famed Bettye Swann / Buck Owens duet version of "Today I Started Loving You Again." It was cut for Capitol in 1969 under the supervision of Wayne Shuler, but not released at time due to the racial climate. Only a couple of acetates are known to exist. This one comes with Wayne Shuler's handwritten notes, both on the sleeve and on his monogrammed stationary. I would conservatively grade this as VG+. It is beautiful with stunning lacquer and plays just the same. You c
  8. One of the toughest to find Deep Soul 45s, on the legendary 521 label out of Brooklyn of Paul Walters fame. Noo recorded sales as far as I can tell, probably the rarest on the label. Freeman Williams - Wonderful Love / Pt. 2 - 521 This copy is conservatively a strong VG, but plays better. $500
  9. If you're still looking for the Freeman Williams 45, I have one to sell
