Vinyl? Check! #3 Valentines Soul

(picture posted not actual album cover)
As soon as I put this album on, I knew that I would find a treat worth posting. Entirely written and produced by DJ Rogers, "It's Good to be Alive" (1975 RCA) is a treasure to behold. "It's Good to Be Alive" is Roger's first album and was anchored by the single, "Say You Love Me." Also, included on this album is the sample that Common used for BE's, "Faithful."

"Love You Forever," is a mellow mid tempo track with a funky bassline. He's professing love for the mother of his child (again), DJ Rogers Jr. Jr followed his father's footsteps writing for the likes of Faith Evans and Carl Thomas, and eventually releasing a "neo soul" album, Emosoul, in 2002. Rogers' voice, writing and production pool together to create a sense of sincerity unparalleled in today's music world: I promise you love, baby, without pain / no mental strain / everything to gain / Baby, no rain! Come on people, love the one you with tonight, Happy Love Day!

Yes, yes, I love this track...the first few bars and the chorus was just calling for me to chop...

A great listen, thanks for posting.
