Soundtrack to the film "Searching For Sugar Man" about Sixto Rodriguez a singer/songwriter from Detroit. Unknown in the USA he dropped out of music. Unknown to him his music was part of the anti apartheid movement in South Africa. Two South African fans set off to find out what happened to him and thus the film. He played SF late September this year. Songs are from two albums released in 1970 & 1971. Great sound with great lyrics. All songs are **** Highly recommend the film.
