 Ann Peebles Bio (Part 3)
Ann made a few more singles for Hi during the late seventies and early eighties, when most of the other artists had left the sinking ship, but unlike what you may hear from the artists that recorded for Stax, Ann only has warm recollections of the Hi-days.
Ann's return was of course warmly greeted by her old fans, but in all honesty, the CD was a bit disappointing, but only because of the rather stiff, electronic instrumentation.
As active as ever, Ann continues to perform both in and out of the U.S. and in keeping with her conviction that "real and live" is how music should be played, her band encompasses ten musicians, two dancers and even has a horn section, a rare thing these days.

 ear fuzz: Straight From the Heart With Ann Peebles
Born at the end of the 1940's, Ann grew up with a background in gospel singing which was no doubt part of the reason she possessed such a powerful voice in such a petite frame.
Ann's voice is full of a kind of aching pain and passion that, correct me if I'm wrong, you just don't really get anymore.
Ann's voice here is in pure contrast to the previous track, offering a more considered, laidback quality.

 Miss Funkyflyy's Ann Peebles Pages
A thunderstorm was raging over Memphis, Tennessee, as singer/songwriter and Hi recording artist Ann Peebles, her boyfriend Don Bryant (himself a Hi artist and prolific composer) and their mutual friend, local D.J. Bernard "Mister B" Miller, were getting ready to go to a concert in the city.
Ann, Don and Bernard never made it to the concert, instead they finished the track that same night and the very next day "I Can't Stand The Rain" was cut, in just one take.
Although it was not Ann's first hit on the legendary Hi record label, nor her last, it was the one that established her as an international star and which defined the Hi-sound world-wide.

The feminine counterpart to Al Green on producer Willie Mitchell's Hi label, Peebles had a strong run through the '70s during which she put out a string of R&B hits, many of which have since been revived by famed fans of the singer and the Memphis style.
I was lucky enough to see Peebles when she toured in the mid-'90s (in San Francisco) and have to say, though I missed the incredible background singers (those *white* Chalmers-Rhodes-Chalmers girls) and Willie Mitchell's crackling arrangements, she was still in great form.
Peebles is not a flashy singer with unbelievable chops like Aretha or Mavis Staples, but she has a grit and an absolute authority that puts her in their class.

 ANN PEEBLES / I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN
If Al Green was the king of '70s Southern Soul, then Ann Peebles was his queen.
Written in partnership with her husband Don Bryant and Memphis deejay Bernard Miller, "Until You Came Into My Life" features Peebles softly singing of a happier kind of love to be shared with the right man. Fortunately for us, her contentment with love is brief.
Peebles is at her gritty best when singing bittersweet songs on love's blues--a fact made amply clear in her riveting masterpiece of heartbreak, "I Can't Stand The Rain." Called the "greatest record ever" by John Lennon, "I Can't Stand The Rain" deliciously blends blues, gospel and pop into an incomparable Memphis soul stew.

Peebles" style was more fully shaped with "Part Time Love" (1970), an irresistibly punchy reworking of the Clay Hammond-penned standard, while powerful original songs, including "Slipped Tripped And Fell In Love" (1972) and "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" (1973), later recorded by Paul Young and Graham Parker, confirmed her promise.
After a return to the gospel fold in the mid-80s, Peebles bounced back in 1990 with Call Me. In 1992 the fine, back-to-the-Memphis-sound Full Time Love was issued.
She appeared that summer at the Porretta Terme Soul Festival in Italy and her riveting performance was captured on a CD of the festival, Sweet Soul Music - Live!, released by Italian label 103.

To most music listeners, there's a distant memory of a hit song called "Can't Stand the Rain," which had one of the most unique arrangements of its time, and was covered by many other singers, including Lowell George on his one solo album.
That song is on the disk, along with the entireity of three albums Peebles released from 1969-73, all of them produced by Willie Mitchell, and sounding enough like Al Green to draw you in, but establishing their own specific hold on you.
One exception (and of course it's hard to generalize about a two disk set that gives you almost 40 songs, so there are many exceptions) is the great "Until You Came Into My Life," which is a full-blooded embodiment of a woman who has found love after a long struggle.

Last year, she rocked the Porretta Soul Festival in Italy along with soulsters Sam Moore, Ann Peebles and the Sweet Inspirations.
In 2002, she garnered acclaim from jaded critics as a result of her sizzling performance at the Chicago Blues Festival prompting Mark Guarino of the Daily Herald to quip "LaVette was the brightest surprise of the Festival...a dynamic singer."

River of Song caught the Horns in a familiar setting, a Memphis recording studio, but the session was anything but typical.
After laying down horn tracks on a record by Ann Peebles, the soul diva who came to Memphis from St. Louis in the early 1970s and burned up the charts with "Can't Stand the Rain," they sat back and joined her on an acoustic blues, backed only by piano.
In this setting, they stepped out of the riff-centered approach for which they are famous, and blew gorgeous jazz solos, Jackson's trumpet recalling Louis Armstrong while Love's tenor sax growled, warm and sexy, wrapping itself around Peebles's powerhouse vocals.
