    Percy Sledge "When a Man Loves a Woman" RIAA White Mat Gold Record Sales Award (Atlantic 45-2326, 1966). A wonderful rarity; not only is this a scarce white mat gold record award, it's presented to the legendary artist himself, Percy Sledge, to, as the plaque beneath the gold disc states, "Commemorate the Sale of More Than One Million Copies of the Atlantic Records Pop Single Record 'When a Man Loves a Woman'". Framed to an overall 13" x 17". In Very Fine condition, with light wear to the wood frame. From the David Gest Memorabilia Archive.

    Covered by Bette Midler, Michael Bolton, Kenny Rogers, and several others over the years, "When a Man Loves a Woman" is an instantly-recognizable R&B/Soul classic, and no version surpasses Sledge's emotional, immortal original.
