Ann Peebles, the American singer-songwriter, began working with the Hi Record label songwriter Don Bryant in 1971. One of the first songs her wrote for her was the northern soul standard "99 Pounds" in 1971, and by 1974 they were both married. She continued to have R&B hits in the early 1970s including "I Pity the Fool", "Slipped, Tripped and Fell in Love", "Breaking Up Somebody's Home", "Somebody's on Your Case" and "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down", (later a hit for Paul Young). She was also the only female singer on Hi Records to release a string of albums, including "Straight from the Heart" and "I Can't Stand the Rain", which contained many tracks that she co-wrote with Bryant. The title track of the latter album, written by Peebles and Bryant with DJ Bernard Miller, was her biggest commercial success, reaching #6 on the U.S. R&B chart and #38 on Billboard's pop chart in 1973.
