TRY (JUST A LITTLE BIT HARDER)

Latest update on 27/01/2010

Artist: Lorraine Ellison
Author: Jerry Ragovoy/Chip Taylor
Label: LoMa
Year: 1968

Philadelphia gospel & soul singer. Written a few years earlier for Garnett Mimms as a ballad. Lorraine also cut Ragovoy's Stay With Me Baby (see there) first, with a 46 piece orchestra waiting in vain for Frank Sinatra.

Covers:

1969:

Janis Joplin [her motto; more Ragovoy songs she covered: Cry Baby and Piece Of My Heart (see there)]

1996:

Chip Taylor [coauthor]

1997:

Cathy Richardson with Sugar Blue

No one didn't even think of out-doing Janis Joplin's performance, explaining the lack of covers.
