Album of the Day
The Atlantic Recordings
Today in 1966, iconic soul single “When A Man Loves A Woman” topped the Billboard chart; for far too many listeners, that's all they know of the man who made it, Percy Sledge. That the Alabama-born singer had much more to offer than that one song is made abundantly clear on THE ATLANTIC RECORDINGS. The 4-disc Rhino Handmade collection gathers virtually everything the performer waxed during his stint on the label from 1966 to 1974 – more than 100 tracks, including such hits as “Warm And Tender Love,” “It Tears Me Up” and “Take Time To Know Her” as well as rare, live and unreleased cuts. Featuring excellent remastered sound, THE ATLANTIC RECORDINGS is the ideal way to hear the music that put Percy Sledge into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
