#67 - Percy Sledge - When A Man Loves A Woman

The title of this 1966 album should just be 'When A Man Loves A Woman'. 'The Ultimate Collection' is a 1986 compilation. So...the (2) chart entries from the 1980's should be removed from here. Also this album made the Billboard charts - 37 - 21 weeks.

Data fixed, thanks
