The Soul Guy is a non-profit website dedicated to promoting the artists, DJs, and radio stations involved with soul music and other related genres. There are many articles to explore within the site and lots of links which will lead you to other sites and radio stations of interest. The site also seeks to encourage new generations to engage with the music and makes no distinction between the quality of soul tracks based upon the often subjective valuations of original 45s. The Soul Guy website continues to support soul radio online and you can find a short list of recommended shows and stations in the right-hand sidebar of this page.

The Soul Pack Sound, Northern Soul Hall Of Fame featuring many well known DJs, Billy Butler Rules - Okeh, Northern Soul Improves Your Bustline, plus Northern Soul Horoscopes - to name but a few.

Credited with the invention of the 12 inch single, New York record producer Tom Moulton originally worked in sales and promotions at Syd Nathan's King Records label between 1959 and 1961.

 

Tom has produced many great remixes over the years and the one highlighted here is certainly one of his best. This version of New York City's 1973 classic 'I'm Doing Fine Now' gives the listener the opportunity to hear more of the orchestration they may not have noticed in the original song.

HAVE I LIVED BEFORE? WAS I A DERANGED KILLER IN A PAST LIFE? COULD I COMMIT A VIOLENT, BLOODY MURDER AND NOT REMEMBER IT?

 

Ceeoni Jones asks herself these bizarre questions soon after arriving in Starcross, Georgia to manage the restored Civil War Era Starcross Theatre. Within hours, she encounters the first mutilated corpse, killed by a relentless, illusive perpetrator who leaves no clues. One attack follows another as Ceeoni secretly grapples with an eerie episode of déjà vu that reveals her own vivid memories of 19th Century Starcross. When charismatic concert pianist Adam Delayno disappears without a trace, Past Life Therapist, Nasrene Asher probes the past lives of the Souls gathered at Starcross. Each testimony uncovers more clues to a 100-year-old tangled web of unresolved intrigue, deception and murder. A psychopathic killer, 'arrayed in some new flesh disguise' is once again stalking the Starcross Complex, seeking revenge. Tension escalates in a frantic race to unmask the killer's present identity, before he--or she--strikes again. Who will be the next victim? And most of all, who among them is a brutal murderer?

Judy Joy Jones: Amazing! Ms. Graham is an excellent story teller and I could not put the book down from start to finish!

 

Claudette Shannon: This novel educates while it entertains from its masterful opening pages to the breathtaking conclusion. Ms Graham is a gifted storyteller.

 

Albert Williams: I highly recommend Karma Rising as a tantalizing page turning mystery thriller.

 

Marla Feeney: Rita Graham has created a wonderful story, full of mystery and suspense, and a "whodunnit" murder case! She has a very descriptive writing style and many historical references to places and events in Georgia.

 

Jean Harris: The book was such a fun read. it really moves along with plenty of twists and turns and the resolution did surprise me.
