Ann Peebles I daresay is the uncrowned queen of Memphis soul. What Carla Thomas is to STAX, Ann Peebles is to Hi Records.
Here’s a clip of her most popular song which was later covered by many another artists: I Can’t Stand The Rain. She co-wrote the song with her husband Don Bryant, a staff writer at Hi Records.
My playlist contains less popular, but in my opinion, equally great songs — and a favorite of mine by her.
I’ve Been There Before
I Can’t Let You Go
Until You Came Into My Life
Doctor Love Power
