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. This album is 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 favourite 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".
Sixto Rodriguez, then. Still coming from reality, and bigger than ever before.
