The Golden World Story
The Correc-tone Connection

Ed and JoAnne were still prepared to invest in unknown talent however, and Elliot Baron, the Manhattans (not The) and Patti Gilson would all have releases during that same period in 1964. 

Nothing would come of the songs or the artists, however, and all faded into oblivion.

Several months later, the Ric-Tic label would re-appear after a gap of two years. As with Golden World, it would have a new numbering system.

This time the 45, "Gino Is A Coward"/"Puppet On A String", was a re-issue of two classic Correc-tone productions from 1962, performed by the great Gino Washington.

The notion that Ed had some prior involvement with Wilbur Golden may well be true.
