Percy Sledge's fame will forever rest on the shoulders of his massive 1966 hit, the forlorn ballad "When a Man Loves a Woman." With its funeral pace and churchy organ, coupled with Sledge's pleading, compassionate vocal, "When a Man Loves a Woman" is one of the most fascinatingly desperate songs in pop history. Although he was one of Southern soul's greatest singers, Sledge never got that near the sun again. This brief set has "When a Man Loves a Woman" and his great take on Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn's "It Tears Me Up," but the rest of these tracks are hardly essential.
