Rodriguez - Cold Fact (Sussex [US] 1970)



Perhaps you missed all the hype around this record that really took off with the 2012 release of the documentary film Searching For Sugar Man. Well, you're not alone. I myself have not seen the film, nor had I heard the record prior to its reissue by Light In The Attic in '08 or '09. There is a wealth of information elsewhere on the web regarding Sixto Rodriguez, so I'm going to brief. Cold Fact was his debut release; it sold poorly in the States but garnered a following in South Africa and Australia. It was produced by Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey, the latter of whom was a featured artist and regular studio musician for the Sussex label.
