Rodriguez – Hate Street Dialogue (Round Table Knights Searching For Sugar Man Edit)

Round Table Knights re-rub Detroit folk hero Rodriguez’s Hate Street Dialogue (taken from the 1970’s album Cold Fact) into a smooth groove, that’s laced by extra percussive grooves and extra handclaps. A hazy, easy listening track that’ll warm the spirits.

Searching For Sugar Man South African TV Advert | YouTube

Searching For Sugar Man (South Africa)

The TV advert  says that the “Searching For Sugar Man” soundtrack “includes 3 previously unreleased songs” but this is not true.

“Street Boy”, “Can’t Get Away” and “I’ll Slip Away”, recorded in 1972/73, were first released on the Australian “At His Best” album. They are also included as bonus tracks on the 2009 US release of “Coming From Reality” (which is known as “After The Fact” to South Africans).

The “Searching For Sugar Man” soundtrack album also leaves off “Rich Folks Hoax” which contains the classic opening line “the moon is hanging in the purple sky”. Sugar Man – The Best Of Rodriguez is a better collection for rounding up his best and most popular songs.

Rockville 2069

Had a great evening on Saturday night at the launch of Rockville 2069.

Rockville 2069 is a futuristic rock musical that is at heart a love story set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world and steeped in the philosophies that characterise the rebellion of the sixties, the seventies and those that are currently shaping our world.
