2013 repress on 180 gram black vinyl; deluxe "tip-on" gatefold jacket with two double-sided inserts. "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, comprising tracks from Cold Fact and its 1971 follow-up Coming from Reality - both reissued in 2008 and 2009 by Light in the Attic. The soundtrack begins with the otherworldly 'Sugar Man' and acts as a primer to this long-overlooked musician's fusion of gritty funk, political poetry and blissful psych-folk. Searching for Sugar Man, a Red Box Films & Passion Pictures Production in association with Canfield Pictures & The Documentary Company, distributed by Sony Pictures Classics in the U.S., was a big hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival where it won the world documentary audience award and a special jury award."
