"Despite opinions to the contrary, this may be the best John Prine album of all. His rockabilly supporting band lets loose on this album in party mode. The album transcends John's simple fingerpicking and restrained arrangements on his older stuff, and he sounds like he is truly having fun. Highly recommended to John's fans and lovers of rockabilly."
Prine Finds The Music. And The Music Finds Him.

"John Prine's best album, no doubt. Recorded in the land of The King with Knox, Jerry, and yes, Mr. Sam Phillips. You want to hear the genius of Sam Phillips? Listen to "Saigon", a draaaaaged out track that stopped even Alex Chilton in his tracks. This is pure rockabilly music, the real thing. The Prine fans that hate this album, I dunno, maybe they wanted him to keep singing "Illegal Smile". John has said that this is his favorite album--listen to it with an open mind and you'll see why. "Down By The Side Of The Road" may be Prine's finest moment, and the covers, oh man, from Roly Salleys "Killing The Blues" to a dead on version of "This Cold War With You", this is one of the purest records you'll hear. Brilliant all the way around. One of the best records I own. I hope you'll think so, too."
A Party Album for Die-Hard Prine Fans

"Pink Cadillac sounds like Prine got together a few buddies and a bunch of beer and recorded an album meant to be played loud. For fans looking to expand on their collections, this is a great album to show how serious Prine was about not being pidgeon-holed in one type of music. On the downside, because the recording is of a lower quality and the mixing favors the guitars and drums over the words, listeners have to dig a little deeper to find those tear-jerk gems and nuggets of wit and wisdom. He can still break your heart (how Lucky) and crack you up (the irreverent Chinatown) but most of these tracks are meant to be just plain fun. For those who are looking to round out their collection, this album is about as raw as Prine's music gets. For those who are just starting out, I'd suggest getting some of his earlier albums, or the grammy winning Missing Years, first."
