Searching For Sugar Man is a film about hope, inspiration and the resonating power of music. In the late '60s, two celebrated producers who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics discovered a musician in a Detroit bar. They recorded an album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. In fact, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, it became a phenomenon. Two South African fans then set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez. This soundtrack consists of a selection of songs featured in the film but originally found on Rodriguez's records Cold Fact and Coming From Reality.
Fabulous music by a true lyric poet. Too bad he is not more widely known, the music is timeless.Published 4 months ago by PJTM

We haven't been able to take this off our CD player, has such a great classic sound, hard to believe he was not more recognized at time of recording. Best movie I saw last year.Published 5 months ago by Jane Murray
