The Paperboy Rocks Nashville

Back in mid-June, the mighty Eli Paperboy Reed posted on his facebook page the tracklisting of a 2-hour DJ set he’d played in Nashville. Being a big Reed fan, and always eager to learn more about sweet soul music, Brother Randy set about collecting as many of the tunes played as possible (he already had about 10%, which is kinda pitiful but it gave him a semi anyway). He couldn’t find them all, but he knocked up a mix of the ones he could. Which was too long for handy CD burning so he trimmed what he had to CD length and uploaded it.
