BACK IN! "Back in 1971, Coming From Reality
was Rodriguez’s last gasp, the follow-up to Cold Fact
and the final album he was allowed to record for the Sussex label.
Unearthed, once again, by Light In The Attic Records, it’s another treat
for fans new and old, designed – at the time – as Rodriguez’s vision of
a perfect pop album.
Coming From Reality found Rodriguez decamping from Detroit
to London’s Lansdowne Studios, where the album was recorded with some of
the UK’s top talent including Chris Spedding (Sex Pistols, Dusty
Springfield, Harry Nilsson) and producer Steve Rowland (The Pretty
Things, PJ Proby and the man who discovered The Cure), who recalls Coming From Reality as his favourite ever recording project.
Highlights include the super-poppy “To Whom It May Concern”, the
“Rocky Raccoon”-inspired “A Most Disgusting Song” and period piece
“Heikki’s Suburbia Bus Tour”. The CD reissue also includes three
previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded in Detroit in 1972 with Cold Fact collaborators Mike Theodore & Dennis Coffey, representing the last thing they ever did together." LITA
