Second Listen: "Piece of My Heart" (Erma Franklin)

Before Janis Joplin as a part of the Big Brother and the Holding Company recorded "Piece of My Heart," Aretha Franklin's eldest sister Erma Franklin recorded and released the joint a year prior.

Peaking in the top ten on the R&B charts, Erma's rendition would later earn the songstress a Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1969, though her sister Aretha would go on to win with her classic hit "Chain of Fools."

With that said, take a second listen to Erma's original version of "Piece of My Heart" below and Enjoy!
