Ann Peebles I Can't Stand The Rain Limited Vinyl LP

· This wonderful album, originally released in 1974
on the Memphis-based Hi Records label, deserved
a wider audience than it ended up getting at the
time. It played to Ann Peebles’ great strength, her
poised and sultry voice, and surrounded by the
sparse, easy funkiness of the trademark Hi rhythm
section, and producer Willie Mitchell’s perfect use
of horns and strings, she sings like a resilient but
disappointed angel on this impressive set of songs
about the darker side of love.
· Ann’s best known song is here, the eccentric but
brilliant ‘I Can’t Stand The Rain’, along with a
marvellous version of Joe Simon’s ‘(You Keep Me)
Hangin’ On’, and perfect readings of a pair of Earl
Randle songs, ‘If We Can’t Trust Each Other’ and
‘I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down’.
· Peebles sings her heart out, and with those
somehow bright sounding Hi grooves behind her,
it all comes together to make a classic album of
dark, bouncy, beautiful Southern soul.
