BIO

Plain and simple, Rodriguez spits the cold facts. He drops acute humanistic observations gleamed from a Detroit born and bred existence. And though this talented singer-songwriter’s primary recorded output reaches back to the late sixties and early seventies, its enduring legacy has manifested itself in the most unexpected, far reaching, and mind-blowing of ways. While heads have been passing Rodriguez LPs around for a number of years in the American underground, a wave of mainstream acceptance in Australia and South Africa dating back to the 1970s has opened up new fragments of reality for the man born as Sixto Diaz Rodriguez…

  • Cold Fact

    Rodriguez

    Cold Fact

    LITA 036

    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 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.

  • Coming From Reality

    Rodriguez

    Coming From Reality

    LITA 038

    Back in 1971, Coming From Reality was Rodriguez’s last gasp, the follow-up to Cold Fact and the final album he was allowed to record for the Sussex label. Unearthed, once again, by Light In The Attic Records, it’s another treat for fans new and old, designed – at the time – as Rodriguez’s vision of a perfect pop album.

    Inner City Blues b/w I'm Gonna Live Till I Die (DELUXE EDITON)

    -LITA 45-018

    We are celebrating Record Store Day 2010 with this 7" release of two live performances by Rodriguez taped during his 2009 tour. The A side features a recording of “Inner City Blues” performed on the streets of Paris. The B side is a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “I’m Gonna Live Till I Die” recorded during his date at The Triple Door in Seattle. Rodriguez continues to prove that when it comes to music, age really is nothing but a number.

    Searching For Sugar Man - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    LITA 089

    The story remains one of the music world’s 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 honored to announce the release of the original motion picture soundtrack.
