The Lions Share | Back from Reality – Rodriguez Live in Vicar Street, Dublin

Rodriguez

Rodriguez

It hardly needs saying but it’s quite an odd thing to have a venue packed out in Dublin to see the performance of a 70 year old guy on the basis of 2 albums he released over 40 years. Admittedly one of those albums, Cold Fact, is fantastic but the other one is pretty patchy. But here we in Vicar Street (upgraded from the Button Factory) to see Rodriguez who’s on riding high of the new wave of interest generated by the ‘Searching for Sugar Man’ documentary.

    Good to see him going strong in Europe. We want to see him in Chicago. Love the man!

  2. Andru Reeve says:

    COMING FROM REALITY is only “patchy” because the sequencing is flawed. (“A Most Disgusting Song” as the second track? Really??). However, it also benefits — on CD — by including the 3 songs that Rodriguez was working on for his aborted 3rd albums. All three songs are excellent, including “Can’t Get Away”, which should’ve been a hit.
