ANY DAY NOW * PERCY SLEDGE * ATLANTIC 584264 * UK
Percy Sledge was born in Leighton, Alabama in 1941, he started out, musically, touring the Southeast in the mid 1960s with the Esquires Combo on weekends, and working full time at a hospital during the week. It was while working in the hospital that he was able to gain an introduction to the disk jockey/producer Quin Ivy. His first recorded song was When A Man Loves A Woman which became an international hit and, surprisingly, is reputed to be Atlantic's first gold record.
