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“.
