CD Reviews

You Have To Have This One
W. Ravenel | living with Maggie in Austin, TX | 10/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Lennon said Ann Peebles' brilliant "I Can't Stand The Rain" was one of the best songs ever recorded; but even it pales to the magnificence of "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" and the sheer genius of "I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home", which is one of my five favorite songs of all time. This is a thoughtful and comprehensive collection of her best work."
