Al Green was the only artist who could outshine Ann Peebles' star on legendary producer Willie Mitchell's record label Hi Records.
Peebles' raw, Southern Soul touched a nerve by opposing the sugar sweet female mold that many other Soul icons had been forced into.
Instead, Ann and her husband David Bryant wrote hits such as 'I Can't Stand The Rain', 'I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down' and 'Breaking Up Someone's Home'.
Peebles' authentic and raw sound, which defined the Memphis Soul movement, was unfortunately drowned out by the Disco movement of the '70s and the sale of Hi Records in '77, but luckily the soul revival of latter years meant that there was a reason to dig up all her singles and compile them on The Hi Singles A's and B's.
The Hi Singles gives a chronological overview of all her singles from 1969 to 1981, and therefore this release gives one of the most comprehensive overviews of her career.
