Artists telling us what makes their lives more bearable is becoming a bit of a tradition in this section. Small pleasures, intimate tastes, artificial paradises. And Eli “Paperboy” Reed, the wonderful vintage soul man, is no exception: his list is all about his favourit things that make his daily life pleasant. Coinciding with his imminent visit to Spain, he gives us a peek of what rests in his heart. We could have said soul, but that would be a bit too much wordplay, wouldn’t it?
