Everyone knows Percy Sledge for his number one hit "When a Man Loves a Woman," but if you're curious about some of his other songs, you get nine more on this collection from his recordings for the Atlantic label. Take Time to Know Her," "My Special Prayer," and "Just Out of Reach" are also poignant and sweetly rendered, and reveal Sledge as a singer who always rivaled Sam Cooke and Otis Redding

Percy Sledges einziger nennenswerter Charterfolg ist gleichzeitig eines der bekanntesten Soul stücke überhaupt, die Soulballade par excellence: 'When a Man Loves a Woman' (1966). Für Soulkenner ist dieses Stück des Sängers aus den amerikanischen Südstaaten eher uninteressant. Ganz im Gegensatz zum sonstigen Output von Percy Sledge, insbesondere den Folgesingles 'It Tears Me Up' (1966) und 'Out of the Left Field' (1967), die kommerziell zwar untergingen, aber zu den Höhepunkten des Southern Soul zählen.
Percy Sledge’s very first recording was far and away his biggest, but what a recording it was. The yearning, churchy ballad When a Man Loves a Woman was a Number One smash in 1966, and the song has enjoyed routine revivals in commercials, on soundtracks and in the variably talented hands of tribute singers from Bette Midler to Michael Bolton. Sledge, recording for Atlantic Records in the label’s late-Sixties heyday, had his second biggest hit with Take Time to Know Her, which just missed the Top Ten in 1968. But after that initial flurry, recording opportunities dwindled for the Golden Voice of Soul. He never left the road, however, and he recently released his first album in ten years. True to the artist’s free-ranging tastes, Shining Through the Rain features songs by Steve Earle and the Bee Gees. Percy Sledge lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
