Sixto Diaz Rodriguez is a Mexican-American folk musician, born on July 10, 1942 in Detroit, Michigan. In most of his songs he takes a political stance on the cruelties facing the inner city poor. In 1966 he released the single entitled I’ll Slip Away through the small record label Impact. He did not produce anything for another three years until he was signed with Sussex Records. Rodriguez recorded two albums with Sussex- Cold Fact in 1970, and Coming from Reality in 1971. The label released his two studio albums plus a compilation album At His Best (featuring unreleased recordings from 1976 Can’t Get Away, I’ll Slip Away, and Street Boy ). Unbeknownst to Rodriguez, it went platinum in South Africa, where he achieved cult status. South Africa at one stage was the major disk-press interest supplying his music to the rest of the world.
