Hattie Littles

Apologies if this has been discussed before, but I am astounded by the quality of MU62: Girls, especially the Hattie Littles cuts.

Anyone know why she didn't get more singles released during her motown [[gordy) tenure?

IMO enough material for a decent album, and better than some similar releases of the period....

Songs with dances in the title

Mickey's Monkey
Twistin' Postman
Come On Do the Jerk
Can You Jerk Like Me?

All of the above songs were original compositions released on various Motown labels, and all contain the names of dances.

I know there are more. Can you name more songs released by Motown that contain the names of dances that are NOT covers?

Did Smokey ever record covers of songs he wrote for others?

Or even original demos

Is there a Smokey/miracles version of My Girl, First I look at the purse, You beat me to the punch, the way you do the things you do, Ainít that peculiar or any of the others?
