A delicate, slinky figure with a powerhouse voice, Ann Peebles occupied a special place among the many great talents that roamed the halls of Memphis' iconic R&B label Hi Records in the 1960s and 1970s. While producer Willie Mitchell was the company's heart, musicians the Hodges brothers its soul, and Al Green its top star, it was Peebles who gave the label its first national success, and a lasting female identity. Released in the fall of 1973, "I Can't Stand the Rain" would provide the title track and foundation for Peebles' breakthrough LP. Defined by Mitchell's evocative production touches - including the mesmerizing raindrop intro, played on a newly purchased studio gizmo, the electronic timbale - and some of Hi Rhythm's most supple grooves, the song was transformed into magic.
