  Erma Franklin
Erma was later devastated when she learned that three songs originally intended for her to sing were recorded by others: Marv Johnson, "You Got What It Takes;" "All I Could Do Was Cry" by Etta James and "Sweetest Feeling" by Jackie Wilson.
Erma said she heard "Piece of My Heart" on the radio by Janis Joplin when it was released and didn't recognize it because of the vocal arrangement.
Erma and Aretha, along with Aretha's background singers, performed a medley of songs they had sung for their father as children.

 Aretha-Franklin.com - The Queen Of Soul
Aretha Franklin is one of the giants of soul music, and indeed of American pop as a whole.
Ultimately, however, Franklin ended up with Columbia, to which she was signed by the renowned talent scout John Hammond.
It's undeniably true, though, that her work at Columbia was considerably tamer than what was to follow, and suffered in general from a lack of direction and an apparent emphasis on trying to develop her as an all-around entertainer, rather than as an RandB/soul singer.

 Erma Franklin : OLDIES.com
The older sister of Aretha Franklin and Carolyn Franklin, this excellent singer's career was overshadowed by her illustrious sibling.
Erma's most celebrated moment came in 1967 with "Piece Of My Heart', an intense uptown soul ballad co-written, produced and released by Bert Berns of Shout Records.
The song was adopted by Janis Joplin, but Franklin's own progress faltered with the collapse of the Shout label after Berns" untimely death.

As the liner notes to this compilation are nothing more than a reprint of some old LP sleeve notes with nothing in the way of dates or recording info, there's no way to confirm when these tracks were recorded or who wrote them.
And like Aretha Franklin's sisters, Dee Dee had to struggle with the shadow of a superstar sibling, Dionne Warwick.
Certainly she had the talent to compete as an artist in her own right, but she only had a sporadic run of small hits in the 1960s and early '70s, and benefited from neither frequent recording opportunities nor substantial promotion from her labels.

 Golden Classics - Erma Franklin - Pandora Internet Radio
The original version of "Piece of My Heart" is here, and is the only song that will be familiar (and usually in the Janis Joplin cover version, at that) to most listeners.
Most of the rest, however, is quality overlooked soul with a slight uptown feel, not all that much like her famous sister Aretha's work.
Now if someone could take the essence of this disc and give the package the annotation and design it deserves, Franklin's legacy would be much better served.

 Dusty Groove America - Erma Franklin: Super Soul Sister
An expanded version of Erma Franklin's sockin album for Brunswick in the late 60s -- the well-named Soul Sister!
Erma's Aretha Franklin's lesser-known sister, and she's got a hard-hitting style that's right up there with Aretha's best for Atlantic at the time.
Erma's vocals are incredible -- equally at home with the original tracks on the record, as well as some late 60s hits that are nicely soulized by the boys in the band!

 ERMA FRANKLIN TRIBUTE
Erma read the article politely and did offer some comments - mostly in her sister's defense - but just what she said is lost in the mists of time!
Erma had formed a group in her teens named the Cleopatrettes and laughingly revealed how Aretha was not a member because she always wanted to sing in a particular key that didn’t necessarily blend with the harmonies of others in the group.
Erma cut an entire album for the label, “Her Name Is Erma” which focused mostly on standards (such as “Time After Time” and “Everytime We Say Goodbye”) with covers of a couple of Johnny Ace hits (“Pledging My Love” and “Never Let Me Go”) thrown in for good measure.

Let's set the record straight here: this is not a Janis Joplin song.
Jopin had the higher-charting hit with her version but the original version was done by Erma Franklin who delivered, in my opinion, a far more amazing and gut-wrenching performance.
Erma was overshadowed by sister Aretha but she completely owned this song in heart and soul.
