ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Red Cadillac has been nominated for the Blues Music Awards Soul Blues Album of the Year. Red Cadillac is a major hit for Johnny Rawls. It was #1 for US and International blues radio airplay in August as reported by Living Blues Magazine and stayed in the top 20 for three months. The album has received rave reviews, including both from Blues Revue and Living Blues.
Johnny Rawls recruited some of the best musicians of his career to back him on Red Cadillac, including Texas band, The Rays. When the Rays backed him on No Boundaries, it was the one of the most played blues albums of 2005, making it to #7 on the Living Blues radio airplay charts, staying in the top 10 for two months and the top 25 for four months. Blues Revue wrote "powerful and inspired, replete with top-notch instrumental and vocal performances and a superb, soulful batch of songs." No Boundaries received rave reviews from all the major blues publications and a rare 4 star rating from Downbeat.
All songs on Red Cadillac were written by Johnny Rawls or Rays bassist Bob Trenchard. It is Rawls' best album, a wonderful collection of songs that covers the full range of soul/blues. While not ranging outside the genre as the critically acclaimed No Boundaries did, these are truly original songs performed by an artist at the top of his game.
Red Cadillac has been compared to the great soul music of Stax, Motown and Hi Records but it has a 21st century attitude. It has love songs, cheating and lost love songs, good time party songs but also social commentary about the current condition of our country and our world.

Great Album
Bob Trenchard and Johnny Rawls have done it again with another album of great songs. Loved Trenchard\'s No Boundaries album and this one will be another hit. Highly recommend

Super Soul
I agree that this is Johnny Rawls' best cd. From the Memphis Soul of the title song to the funky last song,Looking For Trouble, this album is strong all the way through. The songs are well-written and each one sounds original, not like most blues today where bad lyrics are put to something you have heard before. Rawls is a singer who knows how to deliver the song which separates him from most blues/soul artists today or, for that matter, most singers of any genre. This is very well-produced and the musical performances are really good. The sax of Andy Roman sounds like Lenny Picket, super keyboard work by Dan Ferguson, the rythm section is strong on all 14 songs with the guitar leads cooking but not over the top. These are songs that I am listening to over and over from a great, underrated artist who has been playing great soul since he was with O.V. Wright and Johnny Taylor in the 60s and 70s. While the music gives that good feeling that we used to get when a new Motown or Stax hit was on the radio, it covers blues from New Orleans to Texas to Chicago in addition to Memphis and the sound is not stuck in the past. Good time songs, love songs, cheating songs and some social commentary in the tradition of Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayafield. Highly recommended, one of the best cds I have heard this year.
