Sixto Rodriguez - Hate Street Dialogue

Rodriguez is a Detroit native, whose recent visibility owes something to the internet and digital sampling.  Long rumored to be dead, his music only really found an audience in Australia and South Africa (odd!) until his old songs began to get picked up by DJs. A documentary on his long, strange (still, ongoing) career comes out this summer ("Searching for Sugar Man").
