Reproduced for the first time since its 1967 release as only the second record on Phil-LA of Soul Records, “Cadillac Annie” b/w “Tired Blood” showed off the writing, producing and singing skills of this multi-talented progenitor of Miami Soul. The New Clarence Reid was the first undisguised incarnation of the character he invented only a couple of years later as Blowfly. Preceding those amusing filthy parodies of soul songs complete with cape, mask, and high-heeled , Clarence Reid showed both his imitative and original skills with this single, the doleful and plaintive “Tired Blood” b/w “Cadillac Annie,” his homage down to the chorus and horn riff to Wilson Pickett’s “Mustang Sally.”
