 CD Review - Take Out Out Takes, Atomic Magazine
"It may seem like an oxymoron to use the terms "joyous" and "blues" in the same sentence. But you can't help putting the two together when describing the live set from Bellevue Cadillac on Take Out Out Takes: Live at Chan's Jazz Club. The Live format of the disc works perfectly for the band, since a studio recording may have cleaned the grease from under their nails and extinguished the fire under their tails. As is, the horns are dripping and the rhythm section is ripping." -- Gary Miller
 CD Review Prozac Nation, blues review magazine
"doug bell is a brilliant songwriter, this one would make a great raymond chandler soundtrack. we love pay pay pay, a real new orleans vibe, and the stellar calaypso of blow wind blow, a stunner".
