Ann Peebles' Greatest Hits

LP (Item 29736) Hi Records/MCA, 1970s — Condition: Very Good+

A winning selection of some of Ann Peebles' best work for Hi Records – featuring stellar production by Willie Mitchell, and a stone-mellow Memphis soul approach to the music. Includes the great sample cut "I Can't Stand The Rain", plus "Walk Away", "Breaking Up Somebody's Home", "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down", "Part Time Love", and "If This Is Heaven". Nice notes, too.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Hi Records, 1978. Very Good
A bit late in the classic Hi years, but Ann's still going strong – in a smooth southern style that recalls the best 70s work by singers like Millie Jackson or Shirley Brown. In fact, Ann takes a hit at the "Shirley/Barbara" answer song cycle that kept going on after Shirley's " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ann Peebles

If This Is Heaven
Hi Records, 1977. Near Mint-
Classic Hi material from Ann Peebles! If This Is Heaven is a few years later than the much loved early 70s material, but she's still working in a killer groove – and with sweet. warm arrangements from Willie Mitchell. Ann's voice is teeming with emotion and strength, and track here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rockie Robbins

Rockie Robbins (1985)
MCA, 1985. Very Good+
Rocky's definitely hitting the 80s groove a lot harder here than on some of his earlier albums, but the record still features work by Richard Evans – whose arrangements and production made some of Rocky's earlier records so nice! Evans handles about half the record, and the other half's in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martha Reeves

Martha Reeves
MCA, 1974. Near Mint-
Martha Reeves' first solo album for MCA – an all-out studio affair that's quite different from her classic 60s work for Motown! The album's done in a way that really focuses on the deepest side of Martha's vocals – in a way that goes for the sort of "rootsy" soul that was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Full Of Fire
Hi Records, 1976. Near Mint-
Hi Records perfection from the mighty Al Green – slightly later than some of his key early hits, but a record that shows Green still taking fire on all burners! Production is by the team of Al and Willie Mitchell – in a mode that's slightly fuller and more updated than before, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Merry Clayton

Emotion
MCA, 1979. Near Mint-
Easily our favorite record by singer Merry Clayton – and oddly, because it's a record that actually smoothes out a bit of the emotion referenced in the title, and goes for a welcome mellow groove overall! The Merry heard here is quite different than the belting songstress who first rose to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ready For The World

Ready For The World
MCA, 1985. Very Good+
Classic post-Prince commercial 80s soul! Even though Prince, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and even Andre Cymone are nowhere in sight, this classic 80s LP could just as well have come out of Minneapolis as Flint, Michigan, and we mean that in the best possible way. "Oh Sheila" has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Al Green Is Love
Hi Records, 1975. Sealed
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al Green's at the height of his powers here – working in that wonderfully smooth, wonderfully warm style that made his early 70s material so wonderful! This album's maybe slightly less iconic than some of Green's other titles for Hi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peggie Blue

I Got Love
MCA, 1980. Near Mint-
Peggie's definitely got love on this sparkling debut – but even better than that, she's got Jerry Ragovoy helping out on production, arrangement, and composition for most of the tunes – a top-shelf professional approach that makes the whole album sound a lot richer and more unified than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Green Is Blues
Hi Records, 1972. Near Mint-
Well, we don't know if we'd say that Al Green is blues – because he's still singing in his wonderfully sweet Memphis soul style – but this album definitely has a sound that gives a nod to the classic bluesy soul that inspired Al's work in the years before he put things together with his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Rhythm

On The Loose
Hi Records, 1976. Near Mint-
A great little album of southern funk from the 70s – cut by the team that provided musical backing on many of the classic Hi Records sessions from the time! The groove is a bit different than usual for Hi – not compressed, burning deep soul – but tight, funky, and flanged-out ... LP, Vinyl record album
