Roger Christian was, before he went solo, the singer of The Christians. He appeared on the group's earliest singles, but quit prior to the first Christians album. Roger Christian was just 48 when he died from brain tumour in 1998 but left us this beautiful piece of soul influenced pop album produced by Gary Katz (of Steely Dan fame).

Have this album on vinyl and CD. Still fresh 23 years after its release. Great pop tunes sung with passion. RIP RC; taken too early but what a legacy. Still one of my favourite albums.
