It's one of the lost classics of the '60s, a psychedelic masterpiece drenched in color and inspired by life, love, poverty, rebellion. The album is Cold Fact, and the artist is Rodriguez, Detroit's answer to Dylan. Although Rodriguez released Cold Fact in 1970, the album sank without trace, thanks in part to some of his more idiosyncratic behavior, like performing at an industry showcase with his back to the audience throughout. When the follow-up, 1972's Coming From Reality, also sold poorly, Rodriguez called an end to his recording career. He'd never even played a proper gig. And he got on with life. Over the years, he turned his hand to local politics, gaining a degree in philosophy, and eventually undertook factory work and manual labor.
