Classic work from the great DJ Rogers with a soaring, sweeping, righteous soul feel that reminds us of Rance Allen at his best, or of some of the smooth work of Lamont Dozier from the same time. DJ wrote, arranged, and produced all the tracks on this album, and the cuts have a slight nod towards spiritual gospel, with excellent jazzy touches that keep things in a modern vein

D.J. Rogers’ LP On the Road Again featured the single “Let My Life Shine“. With a dazzling arrangement by Jerry Peters, the single managed to chart RB in the fall of 1976, as it lyrically touched on the theme of the gospel standard “This Little Light of Mine“. Other standouts are “One More Day“, “Love Can Be Found“, “Secret Lady“,”Holding On” and “Only While It Lasts“.

    Tried the 1973 album first based on your recommendation (never heard of him before) and you’re right, he’s good so I’m back for more.

    Thanks, for the advice. It’s really a great album, did not known this artist. What a voice, sounds a bit like Donny Hathaway.
    Especially the B side is very good.
    Just bought this album by second hand trade…just for 1 euro.

    Thanks for posting this – I loved this LP, every single track, but especially the title track, ‘One More Day’ and ‘Secret Lady’. I liked it so much that I went and searched out all of DJ’s other records as well and I cannot tell you how much pleasure they’ve given me. Thankyou once again!

    Words cannot express the joy it brings to see someone make available an album so full of joy, by a truly underrated artist. I’ve been following DJ Rogers from the beginning. His obscure gospel albums are a rarity (Hope Songs), but if found, would really be a musical experience beyond belief.
    Many thanks for this.
