Me I’m Supa Fly, Supa Dupa Fly

Graced yesterday afternoon with a little soul, so why not continue the trend today.

Here’s Ann Peebles’ “I Can’t Stand the Rain.”

If any of this sounds familiar, well, this is why:

Peebles is not nearly as celebrated as she should be. It’s easy to marginalize her contributions to soul, because the early 70s were so rich with incredibly talented male and female vocalists, but there’s an earthiness and gravity to her voice that make her tales of lost love and infidelity more impactful. A bonus track after the break as your gift for indulging me in my love for 70s soul.
