One of the best movies of last year came in the form of Searching for Sugarman, a masterful account of the two South African fans who committed to tracking down the truth about their long lost musical hero, Sixto Rodriguez.
Back in the 70s, Rodriguez released two great albums that came and went. And while he subsequently fell deep into anonymity, unbeknownst to him, his records had somehow made their way to South Africa where his music made him a pop icon.
The film was released today for purchase, and we’re giving away a special prize pack that includes a DVD copy of the film, CD soundtrack, and a Sugarman T-shirt. All you have to do is let us know who your favorite example of an artist who should have blown up but for whatever reason never did. Leave your answers in the comments!
