    Percy Sledge & Dee Dee Sharp Signed Take Time to Know Her & Do the Bird LPs (1963). (Atlantic SC-8180, 1968/ Cameo C-1050, 1963). Two wonderful LPs, each a stellar example of 1960s R&B, and each signed and inscribed in black felt pen by the artist! Percy Sledge's hit 1968 offering, Take Time to Know Her, is a stereo copy with a green and blue label. Here Sledge signs "To David/ 'My Good Friend'/ Percy Sledge". On this mono pressing of Dee Dee Sharp's 1963 album, Do The Bird, she autographs the LP cover "Love to 'David' for Being Wonderful/ Dee Dee Sharp". Due to the inclusion of these fantastic autographs, both are treasures! Condition: Take Time to Know Her - EX 7.5 (sleeve)/NM 8 (disc); Do the Bird - NM 8 (sleeve)/NM 8 (disc). COA from Heritage Auctions. From the David Gest Memorabilia Archive.
