Eli "Paperboy" Reed Covers Steely Dan

Here's a sentence I never thought I'd type: You really need to check out neo-soul singer Eli "Paperboy" Reed's cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again." We're pretty faithful fans of Reed's, but I can say I've never gotten into Steely Dan. I'm just from that part of Generation X that completely dismissed bands like Steely Dan and never went back to check them out as I've gotten older. But Reed's take on "Do It Again?" Fantastic. As you would assume with anything Eli "Paperboy" Reed does, he takes the soft rock standard and re-imagines it as a neo-soul classic.

You can listen to Eli "Paperboy" Reed's version of "Do It Again" below. The song is available as a single via Yep Roc Records. You can get a copy on Bandcamp. It also comes with a B-side cover of Latimore's "Let's Straighten It Out." For more on Eli "Paperboy Reed," check out his website.
