The good, the ugly, the shadows and the light. I've come to realize that in order for us to grow and to understand and accept each other we have to recognize the complexity of ourselves. We have to be able to talk about it and meet each other where we are, HERE."

Eli 'Paperboy' Reed

My Way Home

CD: $16.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $10.99 Download

Eli Paperboy Reed has returned to the studio and crafted a new album that is at once back-to-basics and startlingly current. Album opener Hold Out kicks things off at full-volume, embodying the classic gospel ethos that everythings going to work out fine if you just keep the faith. Its a notion that turns up throughout the record, from the title track My Way Home to Tomorrow's Not Promised to Movin', and it reflects Reeds resilient spirit in the face of disappointment. Elsewhere on the album, he nods to the music's church roots, singing of fear of the devil on The Strangest Thing and damnation on Cut Ya Down (the only non-original on the record and a song he learned performing with Boston s Silver Leaf Gospel Singers, founded in 1945). What Have We Done is something of a secular hymn for the environment, and I'd Rather Be Alone serves as a meditation on following your own path to salvation. MOJO called the Boston-via-Mississippi singer the king of rhythm & soul, while Rolling Stone hailed his classic soul and horn-heavy R&B soaked with the blues, and NPR raved that he conveys the heart-wrenching emotion of Southern predecessors such as Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding. My Way Home represents a return to the sonic character that Reeds career began with, but it does more than that: It captures the essence of his sound. A sound that, over everything else, prizes feeling, energy, and, yes, Soul.

The Chi-Lites' third album, "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People", finds the group tapping into the social consciousness movement of the early '70s, presumably influenced by contemporaries like Sly & the Family Stone and fellow Chicagoan Curtis Mayfield. They had one of sweetest voices in soul music with Eugene Record, but their 1971 release showed a different side of the band, both in terms of lyrical content and production on tracks like "We Are Neighbors". Ironically, the biggest single on the album was "Have You Seen Her?", a sweet soul ballad which topped the R&B charts. "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People" was the best album the Chi-Lites ever released, and it's finally coming back to vinyl for the first time in decades. The music sounds better than ever on this 180gram audiophile-grade vinyl pressing, mastered from original analog tapes.
