Southern Fried Soul at it's Hottest! 16 Feb. 2004
By Mr. K. Sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This and Vol 1 covers EVERYTHING that Ann ever recorded. To put it quite simply, Ann Peebles is the best of the southern style soul singers. This is as much down to the awesome music (provided by the same backing band that Al Green used) of the Hi Records house band as it is to the lady herself.
There is enough funk on here to please fans of James Brown, enough soul to please fans of 60's Aretha Franklin.
She doesnt quite hit the heights that those 2 reached, perhaps, but Ann is her own woman.
The music is consistently stuck in a soul/funk/ style, but that is part of the appeal.
Ann stayed pretty faithfully to the Hi Records formula and that was not a bad thing. There are a few hints at disco-ish grooves on her second to last album, but some of her strongest soul material on here comes from the awesome 'Handwriting Is On The Wall' album. Despite the fact that it actually came out in 78, it was considered to be retro even then, sounding much rawer and soulful than most music from this time.
Yes the last 2 or 3 singles she did were awful, but there are less than 5/6 weak tracks here. It is as solid as volume 1 and together with that double CD, amount to some of my favourite soul music.
Other people who are recommended if you like this; Ann Sexton, Candi Staton 'Fame Years', Denise La Salle, Betty Wright, Millie Jackson, Betty(e) Lavette.... there are many more, but none better!
Under Rated Gem 27 Dec. 2013
By Annika - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Ann Peebles hails from the Golden Age of Soul, and shared a record label with Al Green. While she can't match the vocal gymnastics of Aretha Franklin (really, who can?") she was the female gem in the Hi Records line up. Best known for her hit "I Can't Stand The Rain," she is definitely more than just a one hit wonder. This 2 CD set is filled with songs you will love discovering if you are a fan of Southern soul music. Ann Peebles taps into that well of pain we all feel at one time or another with gutsy performances about love, loss and anger.

Particularly refreshing to listen to this collection in this day of over produced vocalists. While many of the songs were hits for other artists and other labels, Ann Peebles is a must have for any soul collection.

Interesting 14 Dec. 2013
By Martin Rumsby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Still working through this so my rating is based on initial hearing only - there are some terrific tracks on here though and the two album set really helps to develop a broader appreciation and understanding of Peeble's work. Overall, I am looking forward to spending more time with this album.
