Take Time to Know Her - Percy Sledge

Percy Sledge's second best record , a cautionary tale and suburban tragedy

with its graphic epiphany:

"and there she was kissin' on another man" indeed.

Listen to those horns, that churchy hammond, the fabulous backing ladies and the heavenly, heavenly drumming from the Muscle Shoals' man Roger Hawkins. What you have is wedding background music echoing the fateful day when she walked down the aisle to him. Mama was right as you can bet she was about most things. Like this terrific track, you're missing a trick (and a treat) if you ignore either of them.
