Peebles' raw, Southern Soul touched a nerve by opposing the sugar sweet female mold that many other Soul icons had been forced into. This 3LP set is an essential collection and features hits such as 'I Can't Stand The Rain' and 'I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down'.
Al Green was one of the first artists who bridged the gap between Southern & Philly Soul. Hi Records collected the singles and Music On Vinyl now released it on a Triple album.
'Vs.' features a rawer and more aggressive sound compared with the band's previous release.
On the album one can find classics like the upbeat 'Rearviewmirror' and 'Dissident' as well as soaring ballads like 'Daughter' and 'Indifference'.
"Cripple Crow" calls forth the memory of Tim Buckley, Marc Bolan, Bob Dylan and Donovan all in one.
These 23 songs will have you riding the pacifist wave of a translucent and slightly psychedelic fellowship of musicians from start to finish.
