Notes


SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN is a film about hope, inspiration and the resonating power of music. In the late '60s, two celebrated producers who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics discovered a musician in a Detroit bar. They recorded an album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. In fact, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, it became a phenomenon. Two South African fans then set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez. This soundtrack consists of a selection of songs featured in the film but originally found on Rodriguez's records COLD FACT and COMING FROM REALITY


you can read the myths, the rumors and the strange trip that went into making this movie. basically, Rodriguez was a Mexican-American from inner city Detroit who wrote and made two records that were absolutely brilliant but went nowhere. Then when it seemed Rodriguez star had faded, a bootleg found its way to South Africa where it became a rallying point in the anti-Apartheid movement reigniting interest in these two brilliant albums of funky psychedelic folk music from a man called the Latino Dylan. Certainly his songs would feel right at home in a Dylan repetoir.

The myth formed that he had set himself on fire at the end of a show with the lines that ended one of his songs, "Thanks for your time. And you can thank me for mine. And after that's said, Forget it. Bag it, man." and then ended his life in a flash. except that was nothing but legend, part of the myth of this man and how it took a decade for his masterpiece first album to go platnum half way around the world.

The music is brilliant. the song lyrics are still relivant today, and maybe more so. "This system's gonna fall soon, to an angry young tune-and that's a concrete cold fact." and when he sings of Rich Folks Hoax you can only wonder if he isn't the voice of todays 98%.When you hear "Crucify Your Mind", it sounds like the best that Dylan ever wrote. "Sugar Man" is a tale of life in the real inner city. Music like this, and a tale like this won't die.

The film is a great piece of entertainment, a great piece of `musico-politico' history. And now he is out touring again. get the sound track, it concists of music from both albums. See the movie if you can.

Rodriguez - Sugar Man

the bizarre "Sugar Man," a whining ode to a drug dealer which makes surprisingly effective use of an oddball arrangement of bass clarinet, theramined guitar and various sound effects;

Rodriguez - Crucify Your Mind
David Letterman 8-14-12

My favorite song by Rodriguez... The citizens of South Africa were given a long overdue chance at redemption with this movie. Their government was the problem.

Rodriguez - Like Janis


a beautiful arrangement backing some equally beautiful poetry
("Don't try to impress me; you're just pins and paint. And don't try to charm me with things that you ain't.").

Rodriguez - Inner City Blues
((no relation to the Marvin Gaye tune of the same title)

I am very happy he introduced me to Sixto. Having said this, Sixto does not soothe the soul. Sixto is a timeless warning, and forever I will consider him a reminder, and a warning, to take in your surroundings - and to become active when society is in decline/when what is isn't right.

Thank-you for you wisdom, Sixto -

Rodriguez - Cause

This is my favorite Sixto Rodriguez song, razor sharp lyrics, the guitar work has a story of its own, the score behind everything just perfect. This guy's music is going to live on for a long time. I listen to people doing covers of his songs, some of them country, folk, pop, rock...that is how really good music lives on. His music is just as relevant today as it was in the 60's and 70's. Though he wasn't a star christened by US music execs, still he is a star nonetheless.

In this official clip from "Searching For Sugarman" Rodriguez' producer talks about recording "Cause" the last song before the record label dropped him.
