PERCY SLEDGE 2ND ALBUM

Original released on LP Atlantic 8132 (mono)
(US, October 1966)

Percy Sledge's sophomore effort, "Warm & Tender Soul", is rarely mentioned in the same breath as its predecessor, "When a Man Loves a Woman", but it should be. Despite the absence of a blockbuster crossover hit, the record still spawned a pair of R&B Top Ten entries ("It Tears Me Up" and the title cut) and further refined the singer's rough-hewn yet strangely sophisticated approach to bottomlessly deep soul. Produced by Quinn Ivy, and boasting several songs from the superlative songwriter Dan Penn, "Warm & Tender Soul" proves Sledge a singer of uncommon range and depth, articulating emotional truths that go far beyond mere words. (Jason Ankeny in AllMusic)
