Ann Peebles - born 27th April, 1947 (St. Louis, Missouri) - YouTube's collection of clips has been well trawled on previous birthdays, but here's an excerpt from her best known song at the 2001 Poretta Soul Festival in Italy that I don't think has been here before. Her husband and co-writer joins in towards the end

A clip of Ann in the studio with the Memphis Horns has previously been posted, but this PBS-TV documentary extract appears to have a different edit and is in excellent quality. Segment starts after four minutes with Rufus Thomas.

Ann Peebles and Irma Thomas are pretty much in a dead heat for being my favourite female soul singers. Thanks for the clips.

Thanks for the link to that PBS documentary. It was wonderful. I forget that I can look for them on YouTube. Thank's be for YouTube. (I'll post what I was going to say in the more appropriate for the subject Economics section.)

Ann’s 70 today. It's sad to see on her wikipedia page that she has not performed since a stroke in 2012.

Here in Holland, lip-syncing her 1975 single ‘Beware’

or alternatively in Spain, seemingly singing live to a pre-recorded backing track which was faded out at around 1:20

‘(I Feel Like) Breaking Up Somebody’s Home’ - 1999 clip of song she recorded first in 1971, later covered by Albert King and many others

‘A Love Vibration’ (2005 clip)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2lsiXY9jpk

‘Stop Arguing Over Me’ by Big Lucky (Carter) seems to have been her first appearance on record, heard in the background putting Big Lucky right on a 1969 Willie Mitchell production

‘I Can’t Stand the Rain’ - TV appearance with just piano accompaniment (no, it was not Jools Holland)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqodHT-w99c

Willie Mitchell thought that she lacked the drive to succeed possessed by other, possibly less talented, singers
