1970 – Cold Fact – Sussex

We feel a bit nostalgic today and thought of Sixto Rodriguez and his amazing story. Have a try below at a very decent live recording of I wonder.

Did you know?
Rodriguez has an amazing story. Starting his carrier during the 70′ he does not meet a great success in North America despite the good Cold fact album. At some point, he gave up and disappeared from the scene (some rumors even argued he committed suicide on stage). Few years later, Cold Fact was released in South Africa where it became a symbol for those fighting Apartheid. This guy became a super star without even noticing it! Two South African fans decided in 2009 to look for this mysterious man and succeeded. They found a humble man most amazed of his own fame and immortalized their encounter through Searching for sugar man documentary (2012).
