Album Review

Struggling vocalist Percy Sledge had just been let go from a job working construction in 1965 when his girlfriend left him to pursue a career as a model. A heartbroken Sledge poured his sorrow into a song called "When a Man Loves a Woman," and a year later, the song became a smash that rose to the top of the pop and R&B charts. Sledge would enjoy a handful of hits over the next several years, and Rhino Hi-Five: Percy Sledge features five of his biggest and best-known songs from his mid-'60s heyday, showing off his rich voice and his knack for slow, sad songs about the sweet and bitter sides of love. Selections include "When a Man Loves a Woman," "Warm and Tender Love," "It Tears Me Up," "Cover Me," and "Out of Left Field."

Percy Sledge will forever be associated with "When a Man Loves a Woman," a pleading, soulful ballad he sang with wrenching, convincing anguish and passion. Sledge sang all of his songs that way, delivering them in a powerful rush where he quickly changed from soulful belting to quavering, tearful pleas. It was a voice that made him one of the key figures of deep Southern soul. Sledge recorded at Muscle Shoals studios in Alabama, where he frequently sang songs written by Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn....
