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!

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!

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

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

While living in Cape Town in 1998 I saw posters for Rodriquez'-knowing nothing about him- and was at his epic lost and found concert in the city. His music and lyrics spoke volumes about life, struggle and lost dreams but these words are nothing compared to the back story about this remarkable and enigmatic personality and performer. See the film and you will learn more and surely be inspired. Listen to his music and words and they will hopefully resonate deeply and remain with you as they have for decades with me. The music still manages to evoke some of the happiest times of my life in Cape Town - a city in a country that in 1998 was itself struggling with a lost legacy under the oppression of apatheid and was finally, finding its true soul and direction. I love Rodriguez and his music - its strange how his words about his home city of Detroit could find such relevance in a distant continent. May be its the simple humanity of his music that creates those common bonds??

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
