Same Ol' Blues (5:09) 11. Tired Of Waiting (3:53) 12. Mercedes Woman (5:04) 13. Double Dealing (4:10) 14. I Gave My Life To The Blues (4:57). The band is in a solid groove with the usual stomps, shuffles, good-time funk and delicious slow blues. During the last few years, Bassett has begun to sound less like '60s-era . King and on this disc he seems to come into full bloom. The band, too, is full of first-class musicians
If this disc has any faults, it may be that Bassett delivers a couple of the hurting songs with too much positive emotion, which seems at odds with his lyrics. A very satisfying disc of shuffles, down-in-the-alley slow blues and funk.

Two in a row for Johnny Bassett and his fine band, the Blues Insurgents. They are the keepers of the flame of straight-ahead, postwar blues. Fellow Detroit musician Johnnie Bassett lays down a more sophisticated, urbane version of the blues with his Blues Insurgents on Cadillac Blues (Cannonball 29103; 57:30). A bit younger than Kirkland at age 62, Bassett is a purveyor of a smoother sound, as on the easy-going title track, the hip, swinging "I Can't Get It Together," the jump blues "Raise The Roof, Raise The Rent" and the humorous shuffle "Dog House Is My Home.
Yes I'm crusin' And I ain't looking back I still got the blues But I got'em in my Fleetwood Cadillac. And listen, I switch on my air conditioning ha ha And hit that cruise control Push in some smoking music And let the good times roll. Yes I'm crusin' And I ain't looking back I still got the blues But I got'em in my Cadillac uh-ha. The hard times ain't all over I still go bills to pay But I can jump into my Caddy And drive my blues away.
