A few months ago I became aware of this film and ran it down and bought it and a few weeks ago it won best Documentary of the year at the oscars.
Its a bit hard to run down but if you can check this movie out-its out now on netflix in disc form.
Searching for Sugarman is the title on DVD
-you can also view online the 60 minutes story on this.

I was moved enough by his music to work the local Theater venue to try and get Sixto Rodriguez next year here locally if he tours again after this current tour.We are way off the beaten track here but do have a international draw of great music to our local collage venue. Everyone involved is excited that this may even happen here.The film I'm told today is playing in out local non mainstream movie theater.
Your post just just reaffirms such a great talent and what a story it is that this man has had during his life.
I'm sticking to my original statement ( to let you know about one of the best stories and films you will get to see in your lifetime-yes thats a huge statement.)
Thanks for posting as I too am learning his songs by heart as I throw pots.
