Sugarman, the soundtrack
Steve Rowland produced Rodriguez's second and final studio album "Coming From Reality" in 1970, originally released by Sussex Records in 1971. It was later released in South Africa in 1976 with the alternate title "After the Fact".
The production of a third album is currently being discussed...
Sugarman Finds Radio City“Playing mainly the songs heard in the documentary, "Sugar Man," "I Wonder," "Street Boy," "The Establishment Blues," he also added in deeper cuts from his two albums, 1970's Cold Fact and 1972's Coming From Reality like "Climb Up In My Music," "You'd Like To Admit It." While rumors that a new album will arrive in the future, we are still all discovering his music as if it was brand new.
During his 75-minute set, he even took time to give a shout out to South Africa, "Anyone from South Africa here?" With many in attendance, it is South Africa who Rodriguez belonged to first and how he is a global sensation. We must all thank South Africa for finding a piece of buried American treasure that was hidden in the blue-collar parts of Detroit. Now, it raises the question, how many more like Rodriguez are out there that we need to search for?”

TicketMaster Review - october 2013Rodriguez sounded amazing!!! Radio City Music Hall “The concert he had at the beacon theater in April was sold out so I did something I usually don't do and bought this ticket 6 months plus in advance wanting to see him but with no expectations. The seats were great, the sound was excellent and vocally he was closer to the original recordings than I thought he would be given they were done over 40 years ago. The band was excellent though my one issue was he ended several songs by strumming on the guitar out of sync with the band. He may have had issues with tuning or this may have been a cue to the band to end the song or something else but otherwise the concert was excellent and the mostly packed radio city music hall really appeared to enjoy it as well. If you are fan or just like the music I recommend seeing him as soon as the tour comes to a city near you.”
