Carolyn Ann Franklin spent her singing and song writing career somewhat in the shadow of her hugely successful sister, The First Lady Of Soul, Aretha Franklin, having followed both her older siblings Aretha and Erma from the church into a secular recording career in the mid to late sixties. Although, Like Erma, Carolyn had modest success compared to Aretha she recorded with her sister many times and proved herself as an excellent songwriter penning hits for Aretha such as Ain''t No Way, Save Me and the stunning Angel. From 1969-1973 Franklin released three albums in produced by Jimmy Radcliffe which provided the R&B hits All I Want To Be Is Your Woman and It''s True I''m Gonna Miss You, proving Carolyn was an exceptional vocalist in her own right. "If You Want Me" was Franklin's fourth and last studio album released in 1976 on RCA. Carolyn displays incredibly subtlety and control on this excellent album on which also she provides many of the song writing credits. From The Bottom Of My Heart (To The Bottom Of Yours) sets the smooth, honeyed tone for the rest of this under-appreciated album. The beautifully sung and arranged ballad "I Can't Help My Feeling So Blue" should have dented the R&B chart but went under the radar.
