Listening Instructions:  A lot has been said about Sixto Rodriguez recently with the release of the documentary "Searching for Sugar Man", this following the re-release and rising popularity of his music in recent years.  We are talking about 40-year-old music that was almost completely lost had it not been for a family member that stumbled upon a popular website dedicated to the music, unbeknownst to Sixto himself.  Truth is, the music he released in the early 70s was timeless and clearly came from a place that resonates with listeners still today.  Refresh yourself with Cold Fact and a Southern Cucumber on your next casual afternoon off and you won’t be disappointed.
