Music today has been Carolyn Franklin, Aretha’s younger sister. Carolyn was the youngest of three sisters, Erma, the oldest, also sang and had a hit with Piece Of My Heart before Janis Joplin recorded it. Nobody I know seems to remember Carolyn or Erma, Aretha was the star people know, although Carolyn contributed songs to Aretha’s repertoire. From 1969-1976 she made five albums. All three sisters died of different cancers but Carolyn was only 43 when she succumbed to breast cancer. If you like sixties and seventies style Soul/R&B then this might be for you.
