Easily our favorite album ever by Ann Peebles not just for the beathead title track, but also because it seems to be the one record where she brings a bit something extra to the studio! The sound is certainly in the classic Hi Records mode here thanks to production by Willie Mitchell but there’s also a deeper groove overall, a stronger burning bottom, and an all-soul sound to most tracks that goes way beyond simple cliches of southern soul. Ann’s vocals are tremendous throughout sometimes sweet, sometimes mean and titles include the sublime “I Can’t Stand The Rain”, plus “Run Run Run”, “One Way Street”, “You Keep Me Hangin On”, and “If We Can’t Trust Eac.
