Ann Peebles - I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home.mp3

Ann Peebles makes music that moves you which is quite a talent to be blessed with. She was the biggest star in the Hi Records firmament with the exception of Al Green and had a voice with a real bite. Yet this stupefying soulstress never forgot to blend that bite with sultry sophistication, always riding lean Memphis charts with class and never overpowering her backings. Sure Peebles had a arousing vocal sound, but her '70s recordings brought deep emotions to the surface for listeners to share. Peebles could be forgiven for being a little miffed at receiveing the recognition she deserved, however she had many minor R&B hits during the Pet Rock and Ungame decade, the most popular of which is "I Can't Stand the Rain." Most of her best work is thankfully now available in this digital age, and her recent recordings are well worth hearing. For a good introduction to Ann and to listen to the pure beauty of her songs check out The Complete Ann Peebles On Hi Vol.1 1969 - 1973.
