When I drove cross-country, I made a point of going through Memphis because I wanted to visit the Stax Museum, possibly the best non-art museum I've ever been to. I'm a longtime moneymaker shaker at the Rhythm Revue's dance parties. I even produced a reference CD-ROM about soul music.
So my new-found affection for Eli "Paperboy" Reed and the True Loves is worth taking seriously. And his backup singers, The Sweet Divines, wear false eyelashes and matching outfits!
