It's no secret that I love Percy Sledge and believe that no one can match him when it comes to interpreting bittersweet love songs. I just came across a cover version of Percy's "When She Touches Me (Nothing Else Matters)" by Mighty Sam that I really like. The original was released in 1966 by Rodge Martin on the Bragg label as the B-side of "Lovin' Machine." Solomon Burke also covered it in 1966.
