ROSE BATTISTE - HIT & RUN b/w I MISS MY BABY


Another perfect double sider!

Detroit's Rose Battiste was a victim of poor promotion, as the quality of records like this show her to be a VERY capable vocalist (at all of 19 years old when this record was cut) with excellent material and production.

"Hit & Run" is yet another perfect, uptempo Detroit four-on-the-floor stomper, while "I Miss My Baby" features a genius arrangement pitting a dreamy, moody sound against some of the most forceful, aggressive drumming in all of sixties soul.

One word- PERFECT!

from 1966...

HIT & RUN

You've outdone yourself today, Derek!!!! Back in the '80s I had a copy of this myself, but it must be very hard to lay your hands on one these days. A double-sided Detroit masterpiece. Thank you! Marie

The English Northern Brewery has a blonde ale named Hit And Run. And it is delicious.

wish I could get that beer in the states! I'd buy it just upon principle.

Cool, I've never heard I Miss My Baby (with vocals) I've heard it as an instrumental called "The Bari Track" on a few NoSo compilations.

Love 'Hit and Run' too since hearing those compilations that got me into the stuff years ago. Hope to encounter this sometime myself in my digs.
