    Articles: The Richard Caiton Story

    What a great article. A nice reminder to enjoy Richard's music which I'm doing as I type. The positivity and soul in Richard's songs endures. He more than emulated his heroes mentioned and is distinctive in his own right. 'Where is the love' is on now and creates an impression of Curtis at Philadelphia International, which sounds Richard's ideal along with Motown.

    Poll: Cd Buying in 2018
