5.0 out of 5 stars Shivers and chills June 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard the opening bars of "When A Man Loves A Woman" the hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I got cold chills. This is simply the greatest love song in R&B/Soul ever. And when you put "Take Time to Know Her" together with it, even the feminists can listen happy. The years have not changed the great Percy and he is at his peak on this CD. Get it.

3.0 out of 5 stars R&R Hall Of Famer .... And About Time September 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
When I saw that Percy Sledge had been inducted into the R&R Hall Of Fame in 2005, my first thought was "how do these people arrive at their often lame decisions?" I mean, the man's last hit came in 1974 - 31 years before he was honoured - so are they telling us that the impact of those 14 Billboard Pop Hot 100/13 R&B hits for Atlantic (one on Capricorn), along with his albums and personal appearance work, were somehow viewed differently in 2005 than in, say, 1996 when they were busy inducting the likes of The Velvet Underground?

As for this album from Atlantic, it's not quite "ultimate" in that it does not provide Any Day Now (# 35 R&B/# 86 Hot 100 in April 1969) nor Sunshine (# 89 R&B with Sister Sledge in August 1973). This in a 20-track release that contains seven tracks (7, 8, 12, 14, 18, 19 and 20 - over a third) that were not hits for Percy, and one that was an uncharted B-side (It's All Wrong But It's Alright which backed Take Time To Know Her (# 6 R&B/# 11 Hot 100 in early 1968). Now, I know some will criticize me for harping on hits, but this is, after all, labeled "The Ultimate Collection" and it seems to me that, if they wished to limit the tracks to 20, two of those non-hits could have been dropped in favour of the missing ones.

Or, on the other hand, go to 28 to 30 tracks, as is the case with most of the great releases from Ace of London, Jasmine, and Bear Family, and provide more B-sides, along with some background notes and discography, both of which are missing here.

The sound quality is decent enough, but all in all, this is not much better than a 3-star release when compared to others available.

1.0 out of 5 stars What A Disappointment March 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have been searching for a copy of a particular Percy Sledge track 'Thief In the Night' for some time now and to find it on this newly released album was a real treat. Unfortunately the Album is not. The recording quality is appalling, muffled and with waivering intro's. I have heard better on home made vinyl to Cd conversions. There's plenty of Percy Sledge around, so don't dwell too long considering this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The complete Percy Sledge experience at it's best April 10, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Anybody that loves the music of Percy Sledge would find this album a valuable addition to a collection. For a newcomer to the Percy Sledge sound this album probably represents the best, and most complete way to get to know the sound of Percy Sledge.

The first recording is okay, but the rest of the album sounds like it was a black market product. Don't want to ever play it again.
