We all know the story by now. American singer-songwriter Rodriguez releases his debut LP in 1970 to little fanfare and modest sales. Meanwhile somehow the record gets picked up by music lovers in South Africa and the record goes platinum. The story is covered in life affirming detail in the Searching for the Sugarman film but if you don't have it already, you'll need this re-issue of his classic first album - full of warm sunshine vibes like a Bob Dylan on prozac.

8/10 Penrith Steve 19th November 2014

Anyone who saw the documentary "Searching For Sugar Man" should be compelled to buy this. However, if you haven't seen the film about the hunt for the reclusive Detroit folkie, Sixto Rodriguez then this is one of those "lost classics", unless you live in South Africa or Australia where it's just a classic.

Released in 1970, the album didn't sell very well in the USA but did well in South Africa and Australia leading to better distribution in both countries and being all but forgotten about elsewhere.

This is classic singer/songwriter stuff and will please any fans of the genre and period. The stand out tracks are "Sugar Man" and "I Wonder".
