Album: When A Man Loves A Woman (1966). Charted: 2 1. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. As Sledge tells it, one night while performing with The Esquires Combo, he was upset about a woman - a broken relationship - so upset that he couldn't concentrate on the music he was supposed to sing. He was so overcome with emotion as the group started their set in a Sheffield, Alabama club, that he turned to his bass player Calvin Lewis and organ player Andrew Wright and asked them if they could play a slow blues backing - any key, their choice - to which he could sing

Conversation for album: Percy Sledge – 1966 – When a Man Loves a Woman.

When a man loves a woman, Can't keep his mind on nothin' else, He'd change the world for the good thing he's found. If she is bad, he can't see it, She can do no wrong, Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down. When a man loves a woman, He'll spend his very last dime Tryin' to hold on to what he needs. He'd give up all his comforts And sleep out in the rain, If she said that's the way It ought to be. Well, this man loves you, woman. I gave you everything I have, Tryin' to hold on to your heartless love. Baby, please don't treat.

When a Man Loves a Woman" is a song recorded by Percy Sledge in 1966 near Muscle Shoals, Alabama in Sheffield. It was listed 54th in the List of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 greatest songs of all time. The sidemen for this recording included Spooner Oldham, organ; Marlin Greene, guitar; Albert "Junior" Lowe, bass and Roger Hawkins, drums. According to the When A Man Loves A Woman Songfacts, Sledge had worked on the song for months before cutting a "final" version.

Most instrumental covers of "When a Man Loves a Woman" play it pretty straight. Not the version by jazz saxophonist Harris, which opened his 1966 album The Tender Storm. He strips the song down to a handful of melodic fragments and a funky little riff or two, propelled by hard-bop pianist Cedar Walton, and reshuffles them into a six-minute jam. Harris's version marked the beginning of his engagement with soul music and of his experiments with the Varitone, an electronic effects unit that let him tweak the sound of his sax.
