The Queen of record label Hi!
Ann Peebles is an internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter, best known for her popular Memphis Soul albums of the ’70s.
Two of her better-known tunes are I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down and I Can’t Stand The Rain.
Originally released in 1973 on the label Hi (the same label as Al Green), I Can’t Stand The Rain was the name of the album, and the song was the title track.
Since then, I Can’t Stand The Rain has increased in popularity, Tina Turner covered it which must have helped, but unfortunately the same can’t necessarily be said for the artist behind it.
She did have some success behind the scenes writing Breaking Up Somebody’s Home, covered by Albert King and later, Betty Midler.
As the rise of Disco happened, Ann took a backseat for a while, emerging again in 1989, releasing material during the ’90s, now on Rounder Records instead. No significant tunes came out of this to help her reach the same heights.
Ann’s final release came as a collaboration on Cyndi Lauper‘s 2008 album Memphis Blues.
She was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall Of Fame in 2014, but by now she was already retired after suffering a stroke in 2012.
