This soundtrack collects all of Rodriguez's most sublime moments, timeless songs of powerful simplicity and romantic beauty and is destined to become one of the most classic soundtracks of all time.

The blending of articulate protest lyrics with eerie arrangements incorporating strings, synths, horns, and marimba gives tracks liek 'Sugar Man' a unique place in history, while the use of gentle strings to temper Dylanesque diatribes like 'Cause' is a stroke of genius.

As one of the anti-apartheid South Africans who grew up listening to Cold Fact, I urge everyone who reads this review to buy the album. Absolutely fantastic singer, songwriter, poet and musician.

Just when I thought there were no more genuine artists or heros left. Look at the impact Mr. Rodriguez's deep, haunting and soul-searching tunes have had on the ultra conservative and racially torn country of South Africa... and look at what America missed. It's own home grown conscience. I am so grateful to the persistant South African music lover and particularly the journalist who persisted in finding the not so raw bones of Mr. Rodriguez.

A message to Mr Rodriguez: America needs you more than ever...write and sing our souls back home!

Bless you Mr. Rodriguez and your wonderful daughters.

One of the best film documentaries I have ever seen...!!!

As far as I'm concerned this album is a must have for any lover of good music.
I discovered Rodriguez using I-tunes, so knew a bit about him. Having bought this album and seeing the film of the same name I have to say what an inspirational figure I think he is.
Please buy this album even if you're only slightly interested, I'm sure you won't regret it. Also do all you can to see the film, it is brilliant, moving and emotional.
This man deserves all the recognition he can get. at a time when there is so much disposable rubbish released by record companies it is a travesty that Rodriguez is not better known.

Only discovered Rodriguez a week ago after seeing the movie but I'm hooked. Whilst the recordings are obviously very old they have been transferred to CD in a way that won't disappoint audiophiles. A nicely mastered CD - three thumbs up :o)

Rodriguez is unique and his life story is an amazing one. Disappearing into obscurity for a long time, he never received the accolades that his contemporaries did - e.g. Bob Dylan, Neil Young, et al. At least not until he was rediscovered, and even today many have not heard of him. He is one of the greatest, and learning from the film about the type of person he is and how he lives his life only adds to his reputation. As for 'Searching for Sugarman' the album, when was the last time you bought an album with lyrics worth listening to that are political, thought provoking, emotional and more?

Buy an original version, for all the Rodriguez records never sold, concert halls never filled, etc. back in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, when he was denied the global recognition he has always richly deserved.

At last Rodriguez is receiving some of the appreciation he deserves. Bob Dylan, eat your heart out. Lennon would be proud. Wonderful songwriter, musician and poet produced a couple of fine albums. A few equally good previously unrecorded songs are included as well. If you see the movie, you will rush out and buy the CD. Should be listened too with compassion as the music exudes heartfelt simplicity and honesty seldom seen today by many over commercialized artists. The man is a legend !

Watch the movie, enjoy the music, and wonder how this gem of a musician stayed hidden from us all for so many years. Rodriguez should go down in musical history as one of the great unsung legends (who, luckily, has now been rediscovered for the benefit of us all!)
