The sleeper hit of the decade — for me anyway — is Searching for Sugar Man, the new bio-pic about the artist we have all called simply Rodriguez … we saw it at the Palace Brighton Bay last week. I bought his 70s classic Cold Fact on vinyl back in the 80s and now I’m frantically searching for a copy on CD because the vinyl player has gone to the great jam session in the sky.
Tell us your favourite Rodriguez hits (please leave a comment …)
I’ve always wanted a black Fedora hat and yesterday was the big day … here’s my new “Bogart” from the Akubra range at City Hatters in Flinders Street, Melbourne.
