Digitally remastered and expanded reissue of his 1971 album. Coming From Reality is another treat for fans new and old, designed as Rodriguez's vision of a perfect Pop album. Coming From Reality found Rodriguez decamping from Detroit to London's Lansdowne Studios, where the album was recorded with some of the UK's top talent including Chris Spedding and producer Steve Rowland), who recalls Coming From Reality as his all time favorite recording project. The reissue also includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded in Detroit in 1972 with Cold Fact collaborators Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey, representing the last thing the trio ever did together. 13 tracks.

The movie SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN provided my introduction to this incredible artist: an abject failure to start, who then becomes an iconic hero in alte-apartheid South Africa, and comes into his ownw at almost 70 years of age. What a story, but much mroe important, what terrific music. It's a sort of mixture of Bob DYlan, Leonard COhen and Paul Simon, with sassy lyrics and lovely melodies.
My favorite line:

I wholeheartedly disagree with the many who say Rodrigues is as good as Dylan. Rodrigues is significantly better. Both Coming From Reality and Cold Fact are truly exceptional albums by an exceptional musician. These two albums might be the best in my collection of thousands of CDs.

If you only buy two albums in your lifetime, purchase these two. And if you have not seen the documentary, Searching for Sugar Man, purchase that as well. An incredible story that will move you to tears.

A little more hit and miss than the great Cold Fact, but i still enjoy quite a few tracks on this CD. Needlessly to say, every film/music lover must watch Searching for Sugarman.

I've been playing this and Cold Fact on repeat since I got it, love it. Highly recommended! Watch the documentary Searching for Sugarman will enhance your listening experience.

This is an incredible, poignant album, with a most amazing story to go with it. Rodriguez has this undeniable ability to write lyrics that evoke an emotional response; lyrics the listener can relate to and feel part of. I defy anyone to not be moved by the songs on this record. Coming From Reality is the follow up album from the equally worthy album, Cold Fact.

Add this to your record collection and I promise you it will endure and be as relevant in the future as it was when it was originally released in 1971.

Was quite impress with the movie. Makes realize how a lot of unknown get lost in the shuffle of stardom. He did not get the recognition until someone seek him out and got a resurgence in popularity. He never got the exposure that Bob Dylan got yet it he was just as good if not better than him. Humility is the trademark in is situation something that most artist will forgo for fame and stardom.

I actually prefer this 2nd 'album' to Rodriguez's first, "Cold Fact". A little more 'sophisticated' in style, with great variety from ballads to protest songs, variety of tempos and subject matter. He is a unique mixture of Jim Croce, Jose Felicanco, America, James Taylor and Bob Dylan. So if you like any of those musicians, you'll love this album!
