AllMusic Review by James Chrispell
Combining old-fashioned swing, western swing, country ballads, Cajun and good ol' rock & roll, Asleep at the Wheel turns a wonderful performance on Wheelin' and Dealin'. Highlights include "Route 66," done in fine rockabilly style, "Cajun Stripper," full of fiddles and accordions, "The Trouble with Lovin' Today," a real country tearjerker, and the bawdy "They Raided the Joint." With Wheelin' and Dealin', Asleep at the Wheel covers all of the bases and wins the ballgame to boot!
