Southern Soul Sunday 10

A native of St Louis, Missouri Ann Peebles shot to prominence in the 1970's with a number of hits on the Hi label out of Memphis.
Probably best known for  I Can't Stand the Rain, co-written as were many of her songs by her husband Don Bryant, and I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down.
I would imagine most of you are familiar with these two so I have selected a couple of others from her Greatest Hits collection for your enjoyment.
So famous that a town in the Scottish Borders was named after her - allegedly

Ann Peebles -I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home

Ann Peebles- A Love Vibration
