This is a compelling documentary about a long-forgotten musician who, thirty years after he sank into obscurity, discovered that his genius had in fact been heard.
Sixto Rodriquez was singing in a Detroit bar in the 60s, when two celebrated producers saw him perform and became enthralled by his charismatic presence, soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics. They, and many others, were convinced that his albums would establish him as one of the greatest recording artists of his time. Incredibly, both of his releases bombed, he subsequently got dropped by his record label, and then disappeared from the U.S. music scene forever.
