Product Description

Product Description

It's one of the lost classics of the '60s, a psychedelic masterpiece drenched in colour and inspired by life, love, poverty, rebellion, and, of course, "jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane". The album is Cold Fact, and what's more intriguing is that its maker, a shadowy figure known as Rodriguez was, for many years, lost too. A decade ago, he was rediscovered working on a Detroit building site, unaware that his defining album had become not only a cult classic, but for the people of South Africa, a beacon of revolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Wonderful Aug. 28 2008
By carlos vala jr TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Once again the good folks at Light In The Attic records have unearthed and reissued a lost gem, a true masterpiece. How this album was ignored and sold poorly upon release in 1970 is beyond me. I can't stop listening to it. Smart lyrics, terrific playing led by Dennis Coffey on electric guitar of Motown fame and subtle string arrangements and that voice of Rodriguez makes me come back to this cd again and again. Cold Fact is a mix of rock, pop, folk, soul, and some psychedelic touches. All these genres thrown into the mix usually spell disaster, but not on this album. Here they make a wonderful backdrop for Rodriguez's passionate singing. I can't find a weak track on the cd, in fact the cd gets stronger song after song. At times you can hear some Bob Dyaln and Leonard Cohen influences, i even hear some Cat Stevens, which makes it all the more surprising that this album didn't sell when first released, considering that the age of the singer songwriter was just starting to take off. Rodriguez would release one more album and then dissappear, more on his life and the incredible story of how the album became a cult classic in Africa is included in the great packaging. A side note, Light In The Attic plan on releasing Rodriguez's second album at a later date, but in the mean time do yourself a huge favour and buy Cold Fact now. Money and time well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cold Fact Dec 17 2012
By Stan
Format:Audio CD
A wonderful collection of songs. Each has a catchy melody and the words are poetic, reflecting questions deep within us all, while remaining very simple and unpretentious, no doubt echoing the artist himself

Great for South Africans who listened to Rodriguez back in the '70s. Simple, pure, sometimes hard hitting lyrics with great melodies and rhythms

5.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to your music library April 16 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A consistently good album with only 2-3 tracks that I did not care for. I think it will be more enjoyable for one to watch Searching for Sugarman, then buy this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Gem Feb. 23 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Superb music; sadly under-rated. People have recently re-discovered Rodriguez. In fact, most people have only just discovered him in the first place. If you like this music (and you will), I strongly recommend the very moving movie about how this artist was ripped off by his producer - it's called Searching for Sugarman, and I believe it;s also available on Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars CD Cold Fact
This is Rodriguez's first album, it is wonderful, he should be in everyone's collection. I just wish that I knew of him when he first started, everyone that hears him, wants more.
