The Rose Battiste Story

Rose's fifth and last 45 also suffered from bad timing.

The Parliament's Top 20 smash I Wanna Testify (Revilot 207), was released simultaneously to her underrated I'll Still Wait For You and unkindly condemned it to the land of flops. Rose's fine vocal delivery and the polished work of Mike Terry and Leon Ware deserved better.

Rose backed away from recording and started working as a receptionist at Solid Hitbound's small office on Puritan Street, but soon moved to a job in the advertising department at General Motors.
