Peculiar Situation is a smooth jazz studio album by Earl Klugh released in 1999. This release features Klugh on both guitar and keyboard, and contains Klugh's first ever vocal track, as he "takes the role of a sideman to a vocalist for the first time in his recording career, breezing in behind Roberta Flack on 'Now and Again' ". Klugh's first and only album for Windham Hill Jazz (03 2), his 20th studio album overall, finds him for the most part mining familiar and friendly territory

They couldn't have placed a surer bet than on Earl Klugh, whose snappy acoustic style first hit the airwaves in the mid-'70s. While he's experimented a few times in recent years with orchestral projects, his Peculiar Situation finds him for the most part mining familiar and friendly territory. The sharp crisp melody over a thick, rolling bass groove on the title cut (with the occasional synth flourish at the end of the chorus part) characterizes his overall funk approach, while the graceful high-toned melody that leads "Southern Dog" is classic Klugh balladry.
