Ann Peebles - Straight From The Heart

If Al Green is heads on the Hi Records coin, ANN PEEBLES is tails. The signature female artist on the legendary Memphis soul and R&B label, Ann Peebles rocked the pre-disco '70s with songs of love, lost love, and love straight up taken. Released in 1972, Straight From The Heart preceded by just two years Peebles' über-classic, I Can't Stand The Rain, proving the young, soon to be American R&B icon didn't need worldwide fame and record sales for a license to be fierce and provocative (see the album track "I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home Tonight").
