D. J. Rogers' 1975 RCA debut, It's Good to Be Alive is a lost soul gem that has thankfully found new life in hip hop and rare groove circles combined. That rugged, mid-70s Southern L.A. soul timbre is all over this album, with nice sparse funk grooves to boot. Sly Stone's Rhythm King drum machine influence is laid thick on here as well. "If You Didn't Love Me (Don't Go Away) sounds like something Sly Stone and Shuggie Otis would cook up if they were stranded in a nearby Baptist church in L.A. and jammed together with a female choral group. "Love You Forever" and the ultra sampled "Faithful to the End" is soul ear candy. Mellow funk bliss. Its follow-ups, On the Road Again and Love, Music & Life are must-hears for any self-proclaimed classic soul enthusiast who thinks they've heard it all. Highly recommended.
