A lean, tough set that was not only a triumph for Peebles, but illustrated how the Hi label had surpassed its crosstown Stax rival for quality Memphis soul in the early ’70s. The guitars are spare, funky, and bluesy, the horn section punchy, and the material far earthier and down-home than the increasingly formulaic grooves at Stax. There were three modest R&B hits on the album (“Slipped, Tripped and Fell in Love,” “I Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home,” “Somebody’s on Your Case”), much of which was penned by Peebles or her husband Don Bryant. Peebles’ vocals were convincingly biting, and she never, unlike many other singers of the era, tried too hard for her own good.

Two of her better known songs are "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" and "I Can't Stand the Rain", popularised by cover versions by Paul Young and Eruption respectively


a marvelous version of Joe Simon's '(You Keep Me) Hangin' On,' and perfect reading of a  Earl Randle song  'I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down.'
