The Rose Battiste Story
Ric Tic RECORDS


Ric-Tic was part of Golden World Records, one of Detroit's main recording companies whose studio was at 3246 West Davison. It became Motown Studio B

Her Ric-Tic sides were co-written by Bob Hamilton, who told Rose to sing Holding Hands straight, without infusing any passion, or as he put it, "Blues-ing it up."

This Ric-Tic release immediately followed the successful records Hungry for Love and Edwin Starr's Agent 0-0-Soul, which inevitably shoved Rose's 45 into promotional oblivion.
