Sure, there may be numerous covers out there of Don Dryant’s “99 Lbs,” but Ann Peebles’ version solidly remains my favorite. In fact, she owns it in a way the original only hints at. I have blogged about the compilation this track is culled from, Original Funk Soul Sister: The Best of Ann Peebles, previously, and continue to urge those with even a passing interest in Peebles (or soul music period) to check it out.
