Percy Sledge - When A Man Loves A Woman

Saturday night is music night on this blog. After a massive amount of media attention regarding the untimely death of Prince, may he rest in peace, I thought I would put this track up, far more suited to my musical taste than Prince (it's an age thing I reckon). Percy sadly passed away just over a week ago, and for me one of the all time greats RIP. Eddie

"Before his music career, Sledge worked in the cotton fields around his hometown of Leighton in northwest Alabama, before taking a job as a hospital nurse in the early 1960s.

A patient heard him singing while he worked and recommended him to record producer Quin Ivy.

The singer was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005 and was a member of the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame". More from the BBC here.

We have lost some excellent musicians and entertainers recently.
The music lives on.
Good choice :)

RIP Prince, Percy, and all others
