Rodriguez - Coming From Reality (Light In The Attic)

The poetic Detroit based singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez was transplanted to London to record his second LP in 1970 and the booklet that accompanies this CD reissue shows him having fun in the UK. As with his debut, Cold Fact, this is another folk-rock triumph from Rodriguez that still stands the test of time, with its evocative lyrics and clean musical ideals. Highlights include the resolute Climb Up On My Music, a melancholic number entitled I Think Of You and the string touched Silver Words. Coming From Reality still resonates today, nearly four decades after its original outing.
