Cover of a best-of album by R&B, soul and gospel singer Percy Sledge (1940–2015) released by Atlantic Records in 1969. It opens up with Sledge’s number one hit from 1966, “When a Man Loves a Woman”.

The design is by Loring Eutemey, who divided the canvas vertically: the left field has a photographic portrait of the artist smiling, by Joel Brodsky. The right holds the type. Harvey Stromberg’s Stromberg Graphic is used for the album title, and Anzeigen-Grotesk for the song titles. Both are set center-aligned, in all caps.
