Frances Burnett - Sweetie  (45) 

Thanks to Greg O for the dancin' disc.  Anybody know anything about Frances Burnett?  I'd love to hear more.

Burnett was associated with pre-Motown Berry Gordy in some fashion. Most of her output is made up of early Gordy songs [several co-authored with Smokey Robinson]. Flip that 45 over and you'll see what I mean.

It's my understanding that at least some of Burnett's recordings are essentially Motown productions made before Motown existed and then leased out. Gordy probably held paper on her.

As far as I know, there's only a small handful of 45s by Burnett, 3-4-5, something like that. So if you were hoping for a bunch of tunes, you may be out of luck.
