In 1970, singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez relaesed his debut album to little fanfare in the US. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, he became a phenomenon. The film follows the story of two South African fans who set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation leads them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez.

Community Reviews

this is a cd

Crucify your man is my favorite.

Excellent Work

This album has me hooked on Rodriguez. His lyrics are totally applicable to what's happening with society today. His songs are just beautiful, with guitar, up tempo rhythm and haunting riffs. I recommend the documentary, too. What a great story of how this artist was unknown to us Americans while he was elevated to national hero status in Apartheid South Africa. See the movie then listen to the album!
