Song of the day 6/7/10

Rich Folks Hoax By Rodriguez
Rodriguez (AKA Sixto Diaz Rodriguez) was once famous…in Australia. His song “sugar man” was a hit in the early 70’s. Even though he was from detroit, his career never really took off in the states. This is unfortunate cause his album “cold fact” is a pretty great piece of work. He blended folk with a bugged out (IE DRUGS) psych rock edge. This song is a great example of it cause it starts out as a typical folk song but half way through it’s already somewhere different , musically.
