“Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed’s first major label release is as potent a classic R&B set
as this century is likely to deliver… recognition flashes might suggest Otis Redding,
Wilson Pickett or Sam Cooke, but this is absorption and reimagination, not imitation…
this is one ‘Paperboy’ who delivers.” (««««)—MOJO

“There’s an exuberance and integrity that prove irresistible. And boy the fellow can sing.”—UNCUT

“Everything here is expertly performed, and Reed has a raspy, yearning voice that recalls Wilson Pickett, or on the breathless ‘Just Like Me,’ a rougher Marvin Gaye.”—The Guardian

“…his voice has become a powerhouse somewhere between Al Green and Otis Redding.”—Q

“In times like this when R&B and soul comes in the form of Beyonce Knowles, Keyshia Cole and Rihanna, the existence of Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed and his music is highly appreciated. ‘Come and Get It’ is a complete vintage soul album filled with rocking, swaggering mood-laden numbers and old-school, romance-themed lyrics that will remind you of the good old days. This is definitely worth digging.”—FILTER
