Rather covers all major aspects of Rogers career from his early days as a singer/bass player with his high school doo-wop quartet the Scholars, his jazz trio the Bobby Doyle Three, folk rock group the New Christy Minstrels and country/rock band First Edition to what led him to start his solo career.
