Frances Nero has the distinction of being the only ex-Motowner produced by Ian Levine to have a record that made any significant impact on a chart. Her "Footsteps Keep Following Me" charted at number 17 on Billboard's UK chart and was number three on Radio One's play list, holding steady for nine weeks. British DJs in 1992 named it "The Soul Anthem of the Nineties." Before this, Frances' claim to fame consisted of one obscure solo release on Motown in 1966, "Keep on Lovin' Me;" the record sold the grand total of 10,000 copies. This, unlike Levine's productions for more well-known Motown acts, is a worthy release since you have no past hits by Nero for comparison.
