Saw the movie "Searching for Sugarman" about the legendary artist Sixto Rodriguez and his amazing story and unrecognized superstardom in apartheid South Africa. Then amazingly enough the double vinyl soundtrack became available at Ernies.........And Then... amazingly enough he is now playing the Warfield on May 27 and 28th.
An amazing artist worth checking for. Incredible story!!!!!!

Great movie. Fascinating how music can travel so far and have such a great impact on it's own terms. Real emotional impact is the true currency of great music. Where it hits, no one can say.

Haile recommended.

mayor hides the crime rate
council woman hesitates
Public gets irate but forget the vote date
Weatherman complaining, predicted sun, it's raining
Everyone's protesting, boyfriend keeps suggesting
you're not like all of the rest.

Garbage ain't collected, women ain't protected
Politicians using people, they've been abusing
The mafia's getting bigger, like pollution in the river
And you tell me that this is where it's at.

Woke up this moming with an ache in my head
Splashed on my clothes as I spilled out of bed
Opened the window to listen to the news
But all I heard was the Establishment's Blues.

Gun sales are soaring, housewives find life boring
Divorce the only answer smoking causes cancer
This system's gonna fall soon, to an angry young tune
And that's a concrete cold fact.

The pope digs population, freedom from taxation
Teeny Bops are up tight, drinking at a stoplight
Miniskirt is flirting I can't stop so I'm hurting
Spinster sells her hopeless chest.

Adultery plays the kitchen, bigot cops non-fiction
The little man gets shafted, sons and monies drafted
Living by a time piece, new war in the far east.
Can you pass the Rorschach test?

It's a hassle is an educated guess.
Well, frankly I couldn't care less.
