Coming from South Africa and being of a certain age, I grew up listening to Rodriguez. I was shocked to learn that it was only SA who had discovered and loved his awesome music - he is nothing short of genius!

while a lot of people have said how good he is after seeing the film, i for one, was playing his tracks on my radio show in sydney in the 70s. so glad now that i was proved right..."who the hell is rodriguez?" the most comonly asked question!
he only did 2 albums, both on blue goose music in aussie, but they really are gems of the time. most of his songs are observations of his surroundings etc & they give a unique inside into the mind of a musical genius (like dylan, cohen etc).having been to south africa in the 70s, i was struck by how often i heard his music coming from windows etc.
many times "i wondered" what ever happened to him. many tall tales were told of his demise. how lovely that he shunned all the bull involved in the music industry & still lives a very simple plain life.
buy both his cds & you will not be disappointed. wonderfully crafted songs sung with an angst & plaintive voice perfectly captures the inner city life of detroit in the 70s. thewizardfromaus

Rodriguez was a very big part of my life, growing up in South Africa. He is the humblest of rock icons who for more than 2 decades, didn't realise he was a rock icon. If you wnat to know more, watch the movie Searching For Sugar Man. Learn to love this genius' music and buy his 2 albums, because they will affect your soul and enrich your world.

If you are a fan of Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, you MUST listen to Rodriguez!

i loved the first album and this one is great too but it lacks any killer tracks like sugar man or the one about how many times shed had sex... Still, saw the documentary, loved the fairy tale story and am enkoying the album

He is absolutely fantastic. I cannot understand how he did not become a great star in the US at the time.

Have had this LP since the 70's and never stopped playing it. The songs are melodic without being syrupy and the lyrics are punchy with a message. The music and the backing are excellent. I get goose bumps when I play this album still after all these years. Went to see him at the Barbican a few years back and it was sold out I think. The reception he got was marvellous and he was and is in great vocal form.
Pity, the record companies are still not paying him the money that he was dues fro sales in South Africa. What a lot of fraudsters these business people are.
The documentary "Searching for Sugarman" is so moving. Watch it highly recommended. There are so many unsung heroes in the music business and I am glad that he has at least gained recognition at last for his music, his poetry and his integrity.
