Have you ever awaken to the realization that there was a spectacular singer out there that you never knew about, and that is everything you dig about singer/songwriters? If so, here goes another one for you.
Rodriquez! He was a singer who put out two American recordings back in the 1970’s that are just now coming into the fray in America but the thing is, he was hot-poop in South Africa. His music led the Apartheid movement and is apparently more popular — in South Africa — than Elvis.
60 Minutes filmed a segment about his story and I’m sure that every music-lover out there was practically astounded that they hadn’t heard about him, or at least his 2 recordings, Cold Fact and Coming From Reality.
Not only is it an astounding piece of life, but it is a touching story. I’m waiting for the documentary to hit Netflix.
