Background: Released in 1966, When a Man Loves a Woman was the debut LP by Percy Sledge.
The album reached #37 on the U.S. album charts and #2 on the U.S. R&B charts, helped by the title track, which reached #1 on the U.S. singles chart.
A country-soul masterpiece. The title track remains among the most beloved, anthemic explanations of love’s impact and travails ever written or performed. Had Sledge never made another song, he would still deserve kudos just for that one. But he continued to score with more simple, heartfelt, unsophisticated stories about disappointment, pain, rejection, and perseverance.
