One of underground rock’s most unusual stories of the 1970s, the tale of an obscure debut LP by a Detroit singer-songwriter named Rodriguez becoming a source of hope and inspiration to the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa, is the basis for the thought-provoking new film, SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN.   The original motion picture soundtrack album is available now through Legacy Recordings, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. The vinyl version of the soundtrack will be released by Light In The Attic Records.
