Searching for Sugar Man

This is the best documentary ever. If you have not see Searching for Sugarman, take 90 minutes and watch it. You will walk away amazed, uplifted and incredulous. It is amazing. 

As an aside, the documentary reflects the reality of the day. My dad had the Rodriguez albums and he would play it them on Sunday mornings when cooking breakfast. The music takes me back a few years. Crystal clear clarity and authenticity, and strength of voice. 

Has anyone seen it? What were your thoughts?


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Papa Loves Mambo.”

Like many South African families, Rodriguez was a fixture in our home. My dad would slap on the music along with eggs and toast on Sunday mornings and we’d all get to hear his favorites, never forgetting the Stones and his all time hero Rod Stewart. My dad had a huge collection of records, he collected them like I collected books. And of course there was always the mystery of how Rodriguez died for there was no record of it, he just vanished off the face of the Earth. In the absence of hard cold fact, many theories did indeed abound. For any readers who have not seen Searching for Sugarman, it is an amazing documentary! A must-see!
