Rodriguez Coming From Reality LP

€ 21.50

Availability: Out of stock

Back in 1971, Coming From Reality was Rodriguez’s last gasp, the follow-up to Cold Fact and the final album he was allowed to record for the Sussex label.

The story remains one of the music world’s most unusual tales of the 1970s: an obscure debut LP by a Detroit singer-songwriter becomes a source of hope and inspiration to the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa.

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 (Sex Pistols, Dusty Springfield, Harry Nilsson) and producer Steve Rowland (The Pretty Things, PJ Proby and the man who discovered The Cure), who recalls Coming From Reality as his favourite ever recording project.

  • First Official re-release of the follow up to Cold Fact!
  • Recorded in 1970 with legendary producer Steve Rowland (Pretty Things, The Cure)
  • Includes songs featured in the award-winning documentary film Searching For Sugar Man
  • LP features old-school tip on jacket, special die-cut sleeve, insert w/ liner notes, rare photos, lyrics, and 180 gram vinyl


Rodriguez receives royalties from the sale of this release.
