Cold Fact (CD)
It's one of the lost classics of the '60s, a psychedelic masterpiece drenched in color and inspired by life, love, poverty, rebellion, and, of course, 'jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane.' 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 on a Detroit building site, unaware that his defining album had become not only a cult classic, but for the people of South Africa, a beacon of revolution. Sixto Diaz Rodriguez was born in 1942 to Mexican immigrant parents in Detroit, Michigan. He 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. Now, Light In The Attic is set to commit Cold Fact to CD for audiences in North America, UK, Europe, and Asia, who can finally find out why -- halfway across the world -- Rodriguez is spoken of in the same reverent tones as The Doors, Love and Jimi Hendrix."
