A buried treasure worth its weight in gold.ÓŃAllMusic on RodriguezŐs Cold Fact
One of the most remarkable musical rediscoveries of recent times has been the amazing tale of late-in-life recognition for the soulful Detroit singer/songwriter known simply as Rodriguez (born Sixto Diaz Rodriguez). In 1970 and 1971 he released two truly classic lost albums, Cold Fact and Coming From Reality (both available as Light in the Attic reissues). With messages about life, love, poverty, and anti-authoritarian rebellion, they revealed RodriguezŐs humanistic take on the hard lessons of the street and the social injustice that faced his generation. Rich in instrumental color with Dylanesque lyrical turns, these psychedelic soul/folk rock masterpieces easily rival the iconic records of such contemporaries as Curtis Mayfield, Jimi Hendrix, or Arthur Lee and Love.
