  Ann Peebles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Louis, Missouri, USA, Peebles was discovered as a talent by Gene "Bowlegs" Miller of Hi Records during a 1968 trip to sit in singing with him at a Memphis, Tennessee, nightclub.
Peebles released a number of commercially successful and critically well received albums produced by Willie Mitchell on Hi Records throughout the 1970s, until the rise of the disco fad in the late 1970s took her music out of the limelight.
Hi Records was sold in 1977, but Peebles reunited with Willie Mitchell in 1989 to produce her comeback album, Call Me.

The records were also easy to load, unlike the standard phonograph the tone arm was not lifted then lowered onto the start of the record.
Moving the tone arm over the record would start it spinning, when the bottom of the red button would hit a stop next to the turntable the button would be released and the needle would be placed in the starting groove.
As the record was finished playing the tone arm would move out of the way, that record would drop to the bottom of the spindle and the next record would start playing.

 THERE - The Virtual Destination   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Hi Times is a chronological compilation, with Disc 1 revealing the gradually increasing weight of Mitchell's influence, including his own first R&B hit, "Buster Browne" from 1965 and his 1968 success with "Soul Serenade".
But Mitchell was producing records outside Hi, as well, with such singers as Otis Clay, Syl Johnson, and O.V. Wright, and when he was given more leeway by Cuoghi in the late '60s, he began recruiting the vocalists who would give Hi its indelible musical personality.
When Joe Cuoghi died in 1970, Mitchell virtually took control of Hi, perfecting a sound that was at once earthy and suave, retaining the blues and gospel at the root of Memphis soul but pointing the way to the "smooth grooves" of the '70s.

 Syl Johnson : The Best of Syl Johnson: The Hi Records Years - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The Mississippi-born Syl Johnson first broke on the scene in the late '60s and early '70s, and had a few hits including, "Is It Because I'm Black" and "Concrete Reservation." He signed with Hi Records in 1971, and enjoyed a nine-year stint with the label, from which this set grabs 22 tracks.
Musically speaking, to some Johnson may not have been the recipient of the magical aspect of the Hi sound, but a few tracks here prove that isn't the case.
The Best of Syl Johnson: The Hi Records Years is an illuminating look at one of R&B's most underrated talents.

 O.V. Wright : The Complete O.V. Wright on Hi Records, Vol. 1: In the Studio - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
The first volume of the two-disc set The Complete O.V. Wright on Hi Records concentrates on In the Studio, which means this is the stuff that hit the charts and the stuff that made the albums.
Wright was one of the gutsiest vocalists on the tight, smooth, soulful Hi label, as this collection proves, and he often had material to match his talents, thanks to such fine songwriters as the Mitchell/Randle team.
It is true that 30 tracks may be a bit much for a certain breed of listener, since there are some cuts that are merely good genre pieces, but for the soul aficionado, this is a welcome addition to the library.

Northern Souljers Meet Hi Rhythm captures a ‘60s soul-centric moment when Willie Mitchell’s Royal Recording Studios achieved a nation-wide reputation for being able to provide not only studio time but stellar studio musicians who would go on to become the legendary Hi Rhythm section.
The electro-rock phenomenon in hip-hop was a fleeting but extraordinary moment in which the faster tempos of the dance community met with the sound and fury of hip-hop.
While most recordings that were popular then and have survived to this date reflect the downtown (i.e: white) approach to this music, the body of work that comprises Captain Rock “To The Future Shock” is very special for its representing the uptown take on this music.

Hi Times: The R and B Years (The Right Stuff 1995) - With this 68-track set, Hi Records claims its rightful place in the holy trinity of Memphis-based labels.
This lavish three-disc set, which is centered around hitmaker Al Green, proves that the classic Hi Record sound developed by engineer Willie Mitchell has stood the test of time.
The R and B Years focuses on the second part of the Hi story, and opens with a stalwart 1959 instrumental, the horn-driven "Smokie Part 2" by the Bill Black Combo.
