Description
This soundtrack to the fascinating documentary about the afterlife of 1970s singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez's music preserves the best moments from his two albums, Cold Fact and Coming From Reality, including "This Is Not a Song, It's an Outburst: Or, The Establishment Blues"; "A Most Disgusting Song"; and the autobiographical "Can't Get Away."

"Against all odds, a bootleg recording of Cold Fact made its way to South Africa, just as the stronghold of apartheid was growing, and Rodriguez's anti-establishment storytelling, filtered through a psychedelia-tinged folk-rock lens, connected deeply with black Africans as well as liberal young Afrikaners. As word of mouth about the singer/songwriter spread, he became a South African sensation (naturally helped along when the government banned his records), eventually going not just platinum but also finding listeners holding him in the same artistic esteem as Bob Dylan and the Beatles."All Music Guide

"Rodriguez's story wouldn't be quite as intriguing were his music not so strong and enduring. The blending of articulate protest lyrics with eerie arrangements incorporating strings, synths, horns and marimba gives tracks like 'Sugar Man' a unique place in pop history, while the use of gentle strings to temper Dylanesque diatribes like 'Cause' is a stroke of genius."The Independent
