Eli "Paperboy" Reed, Come and Get It (Capitol)

Come and Get It
Critical Mass
Label: Capitol

by Kenny Herzog

The third album (and first for a major) from this Boston-born, Mississippi- and Chicago-bred singer-guitarist is bound to inspire Sam Cooke comparisons, but Get It just as frequently stirs up Jackson 5 dance fever ("Come and Get It") and cribs CCR grit ("Tell Me What I Want to Hear"). Reed's blue-eyed soul ballads can lack passion, and the album's subject matter is fairly generic, but on "Just Like Me," his boyishly furious rasp transforms familiar blues tropes into something simultaneously self-effacing and brash.
