It’s about time someone made a Sundance-endorsed documentary and catalog-skimming soundtrack about the strange-but-true life story of Sixto Rodriguez, a Detroit native who disappeared into a life of demolition work after releasing two cult records in the early ‘70s. They're cult records in the States, at least. On the Internet, Rodriguez's daughter discovered her dad's genuine star status in South Africa: his working-class-hero songs had become a platinum-plated voice of the '90s anti-apartheid movement. That’s when his long-out-of-print Cold Fact and Coming from Reality LPs received a proper CD pressing, setting the stage for Light in the Attic’s own reissue campaign in the U.S. more than a decade later. “Sugar Man” is a woozy psych-pop single with the same withdrawal symptoms as The Velvet Underground’s “Waiting for the Man.” It perfectly sets the scene of Searching for Sugar Man, raising the curtain on a best-of collection that’s split evenly between Rodriguez’s two studio albums. We’d get more into specific songs, but they’re all essential listening. This is the perfect dust-clearing companion to one of 2012’s most compelling films.
