The enigma immortalized in THAT doco we all cried over; Rodriguez has vocal chords immune to age or punishment.
Recorded during his Oz tour in 2014 (apparently eons ahead of his most recent), it’s clear that his sing-along ballads of bittersweet love and observation transcend the myth to still touch our inner child. All the staples are here including I Wonder and Sugar Man, as well as Sinatra’s Learnin’ The Blues and Jefferson Airplane’s Somebody To Love, just to mix it up and show off his taste and ability. Crappy cover art and a somewhat flat production value aside, this is still a Sunday arvo treat to wipe away fears of the working week ahead.
