5.0 out of 5 stars Great-Sounding Reissue 14 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having bought a (admittedly budget) compilation on Music Club Deluxe recently and been disappointed with the sound quality, and having subsequently read a lot of reviews critical of the sonic treatment of the Hi catalogue in recent years, it was a relief to find that the Fat Possum reissue of this terrific album sounds absolutely fine. I'll be buying more of their reissues of Ann Peebles and Al Green as and when I can afford them!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a listen. 1 Feb 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
After having a browse for some old soul classics, I remembered 'I can't stand the rain' from watching the commitments film several years ago, and I always prefer original artists, there are some great tracks on this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ann Peebles is Al Green's long lost soul sista 3 May 2002
By "aring40" - Published on
Format:Audio CD
For years now I have been yearning to hear more of Al Green at his best: those years that he spent recording for Hi Records. Sadly, I had exhausted his catalog. And then I found Ann Peebles. Here's the reverend Al Green in drag singing like an angel. The horns, the strings, the backup singers, her voice. It's like a very good drug. Buy this album. Songs like "If We Can't Trust Each Other" and "One Way Street" will put a smile on your face and make you consider loving mankind again. Go ahead, get your credit card out of your wallet and place that order. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ann's Positive Vibrations 16 May 2009
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on
Format:Audio CD
It's a short album but it puts it right where you want it.The title song alone is very much a unique form of music;minor 70's electronic mixed with that great HI soul sound.Basically Ann Peebles is the female version of Al Green,even down to her phrasing.But she's good,very good.Everything from the horns,the drumming and the general atmospherics of this recording has that strong sunny soul/R&B sound going that characterized Al's best recordings.There's nothing here that will suprise you much after that but once you get int the neighborhood of "If We Can't Trust Each Other","I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" and "One Way Street" Peebles,who not only sings very genuinely but contributes to much of the songwriting really gets a chance to shin with some excellent adlibs. It's a sound best characterized as "sweet funk";true is doesn't have the kind of rhythmic and harmonic variations harder funk does but it's downhome AND in the groove all at once.Not only will Al Green fans feel right at home with this one but with that electronic burble hissing in the backround on some of these other cuts outside the title track,the sense of musical futurism along with the down to Earth 70's soul sound really helps to create a musical fusion of old and new that is more important to music of the last 5 or 6 years then many might wish to acknowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars In My Opinion 16 Nov 2010
By Alex McMillon - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album by Ann Peebles is an outstanding R&B Soul album. Her soulful sexy easy to the ear voice is just beautiful singing the songs in this album. Simply said Ann's delivery on every song will make a wrong doing man do right and a good man keep on doing good. Buy this album the production quality on every song is well worth it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Looking for radio version 30 Jan 2014
By Mikka - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Her voice is incredibly earthy and moving. She definitely affects you and takes you on an emotional journey with that voice. Magical. I first heard 'I can't stand the rain' on the radio, and while I still love the version on this disc, the radio version was faster. Any way, I am off in search of it now, and if you are too, definitely get this album but you'll have to keep looking for the radio version
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 22 Sep 2013

Digital recording makes it more accessible. She's got a great voice, better than i remembered. Highly recommended for a timeless classic.
