THE SONNETTES - I'VE GOTTEN OVER YOU


Written (and probably produced by as well) Detroit genius Norman Whitfield (writer of oodles of classic Motown tracks as well as the acknowledged "inventor" of psychedelic soul), this record is a bit of a mystery. One would think that information would be readily available on a record with the involvement of one of Detroit's major figures, but all that seems to be known is that the two releases on the KO label were both by the Sonnettes (this is the only one I've heard).

A delightful track that reminds me of early Mary Wells (kinda like "Beat Me To The Punch"), this is a record that should have been a hit; perfect arrangement, catchy song and sublime vocals. I am taking a wild guess at the year.

As always, if anyone knows more, please do me a favor and write.

Very interesting record - I do hear that early Mary Wells sound - especially from the session musicians. Thank you again.
