In Searching for Sugar Man’s online forum, users share their first discovery of the musician, Rodriguez.

Most users, from across the world, list variations on 2012 and 2013. But, for people with South African links, encounters with Rodriguez (and his album Cold Fact) go way back.

“Arrived in Jo’burg mid 1975 and EVERYONE was playing Rodriguez” … so the stories go, as Sugar Man and I Wonder (for me, it was Establishment Blues) became a staple for all of us raised on music termed alternative, conscious or folk.
