I’m a big fan to music dated back in the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s. Some of my favorite artists include Jim Croce, Janis Joplin, John Denver, Bob Marley and The Jackson 5. For me, this music is amazing; there’s no other way to explain it. I just love it so much.
I received the original motion picture soundtrack for Searching For Sugar Man a little over a week ago. Before this I knew nothing about the film or Rodriguez’s music.
Searching For Sugar Man premiered in New York on April 24th at the Tribeca Film Festival and then released to more markets throughout the month of August. The story Searching For Sugar Man tells of the 1970 release of Rodriguez’s debut album, Cold Fact. Austin Chronicle’s Dough Freeman explains, Cold Fact was a fusion of gritty funk with “street-tough lyricism and psychedelic folk arrangements.“
Take a Listen to Rodriguez’s music (and take a moment to read what Searching For Sugar Man, the movie, is all about). It’s inspiring. Plus, I have a feeling you’ll really enjoy his music too (especially if you appreciate music from the 60s, 70s and 80s)…and then you’ll see why he’s now on my list of favorite, right along with Jim Croce, Janis Joplin and the others. Man he’s good!!!
