Aretha's younger sister on a super track done in '69 for Carl Davis at Brunswick. Pookie loves this cut, and has found it odd that this one missed being included on Erma's album, 'Soul Sister'. It comes as no suprise that Erma was targeted by Berry Gordy and Billy Davis to be the first artist for Motown. They went so far as to audition her to Leonard Chess, who was to distribute the early Motown releases. Len wasn't that impressed, so Berry and Davis chose The 4 Tops and The Miracles instead. Oh Well!! They all missed the boat. Sadly Erma was to find herself in the same position as Dee Dee Warwick, and Billy Butler, as super talented artists who could never get from under the clould of their superstar siblings. Pookie loves what Carl Davis produced with Erma, and it's too bad that collaberation didn't last longer. Enjoy the merging of a great Detroit talent and that soooo good Chicago Soul Sound.
