1 - RODRIGUEZ - COLD FACT - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


It's one of the lost classics of the '60s, a psychedelic masterpiece drenched in colour and inspired by life, love, poverty, rebellion. The album is Cold Fact, and what's more intriguing is that its maker - a shadowy figure known as Rodriguez - was, for many years, lost too. A decade ago, he was rediscovered working as a menial day laborer in Detroit, Michigan. He was unaware that his defining album had become not only a cult classic, but for the people of South Africa, a beacon of revolution. Rodriguez recorded Cold Fact - his debut album - in 1969, and released it in March 1970. It's crushingly good stuff, filled with tales of bad drugs, lost love, and itchy-footed songs about life in late '60s inner-city America. 'Gun sales are soaring/Housewives find life boring/Divorce the only answer/Smoking causes cancer,' says the Dylan-esque Establishment Blues.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sugar Man 02. Only Good For Conversation 03. Crucify 04. Establishment Blues 05. Hate Street Dialogue 06. Forget It 07. Inner City Blues 08. I Wonder 09. Like Janis 10. Gommorah 11. Rich Folks Hoax 12. Jane S Diddy

5 - RODRIGUEZ - SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


The story remains one of the music worlds 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. Now, the story of Rodriguez and his cult album Cold Fact is the basis for Searching For Sugar Man, a riveting new documentary by filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul. Light In The Attic Records in partnership with Sony Legacy are releasing the original motion picture soundtrack, comprising tracks from Cold Fact and its 1971 follow-up Coming From Reality - both reissued in 2008 and 2009 by Light In The Attic. The soundtrack begins with the otherworldly "Sugar Man" and acts as a primer to this long-overlooked musicians fusion of gritty funk, political poetry and blissful psych-folk.Searching For Sugar Man, a Red Box Films & Passion Pictures Production in association with Canfield Pictures & The Documentary Company, distributed by Sony Pictures Classics in the U.S., was a big hit at this years Sundance Film Festival where it won the world documentary audience award and a special jury award, and then went on to screen at SXSW, Tribeca, and the Sheffield Doc Fest.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sugar Man 02. Crucify Your Mind 03. Cause 04. I Wonder 05. Like Janis 06. This Is Not A Song, It's An Outburst: Or,the Establishment Blues 07. Can't Get Away 08. I Think Of You 09. Inner City Blues 10. Lifestyles - Sandrevan Lullaby 11. Street Boy 12. A Most Disgusting Song 13. I'll Slip Away 14. Jane S.
