Music documentary review: unraveling the enigma of Rodriguez | Music Documentary Monday

Rodriguez

In the late 1960s, two record company producers were on the search for fresh talent in Detroit. In a smoky, unassuming dockside bar, they discovered Sixto Rodriguez, an enormously talented singer who wrote songs about inner city life with a lyrical complexity that outstripped many of his contemporaries. Everyone thought they had a star on their hands, and two albums were released, 1970′s Cold Fact and 1971′s Coming from Reality. Neither made even the slightest dent on the the American market, and Rodriguez and his music disappeared into obscurity.
