2012 repress. "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. Coming From Reality found Rodriguez decamping from Detroit to London's Lansdowne Studios, where the album was recorded with some of the UK's top talent including Chris Spedding (Sex Pistols, Dusty Springfield, Harry Nilsson) and producer Steve Rowland (The Pretty Things, PJ Proby, and the man who discovered The Cure), who recalls Coming From Reality as his favorite ever recording project. Highlights include the super poppy 'To Whom It May Concern,' the 'Rocky Raccoon'-inspired 'A Most Disgusting Song' and period piece 'Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour.' The CD reissue also includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded in Detroit in 1972 with Cold Fact collaborators Mike Theodore & Dennis Coffey, representing the last thing they ever did together." Includes 24-page booklet.
