Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Sixto Rodriguez (vocals, acoustic guitar).
  • Audio Remixer: Ray Hall.
  • Arrangers: Dennis Coffey; Mike Theodore.
  • The folks at the modest Seattle imprint Light In The Attic have dedicated themselves to providing the public with carefully assembled re-issues of forgotten soul, reggae, and psychedelic albums, and have scored yet another triumph with their reissue of Rodirguez's neglected psychedelic folk masterpiece, COLD FACT.
  • Born to a Mexican immigrant family in Detroit, Sixto Diaz Rodriguez honed his guitar playing skills in between shifts at Detroit's larger auto plants. In the late `60s he attracted the attention of guitar-slinger extraordinaire Dennis Coffey and soon thereafter recorded COLD FACT for Coffey's Sussex label. COLD FACT is a singular amalgamation of gentle folk and dreamy psychedelic production touches that sounds today like a more soulful variant of Donovan's psych-pop excursions of the late `60s.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.104) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "COLD FACT is a psych-folk time capsule from a dark era of dreams destroyed."

Blender (Magazine) (p.85) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Motown studio musicians made the songs weirdly elegant and lent this cracked classic enough cheap synthesizer wheezes, trombones and inner-city psychedelica to earn its place in the freak-folk pantheon."
