THE NEW CLARENCE REID – Cadillac Annie / Tired Blood – 7″ [RSD2020-AUG29]
On sale online from 18.00 hours August 29th
Reproduced for the first time since its 1967 release as only the second record on Phil-LA of Soul Records, Cadillac Annie / 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 / Cadillac Annie, his homage down to the chorus and horn riff to Wilson Pickett’s Mustang Sally.
