Rodriguez - At His Best mp3 album

At His Best is a compilation album by American singer/song writer, Rodriguez. It was originally released exclusively in Australia by the Australian record label Blue Goose Music in 1977. Unbeknownst at the time even to Rodriguez himself, bootleg copies of the album subsequently went platinum in South Africa in the late 1970s

Rodriguez remained an elusive figure (even after he performed and recorded live in South Africa during 1998), and fans are still waiting for the great digital-age compilation, but the best of his work is right here.

At His Best is a compilation album by American singer/song writer, Rodriguez. Unbeknownst at the time even to Rodriguez himself, bootleg copies of the album subsequently went platinum in South Africa in the late 1970s. The tracks "Can't Get Away", "I'll Slip Away", and "Street Boy" were originally recorded for his unfinished third studio album; these three were later included as bonus tracks on the 2009 . re-issue of his second studio album, Coming from Reality. Crucify Your Mind" – 2:28 (from Cold Fact ).

After the second album failed, Rodriguez decided to take a break from music and continued to work in construction. He earned meager wages at the physically grueling work. Although Rodriguez was unaware of it, his popularity grew like wildfire. There was little information about Rodriguez, and people in South Africa wanted to know more. In the 1970s in South Africa, it was the height of the Apartheid system. Television was banned, and media was censored and often restricted.

Does anyone have this album where Side 2 track 5 has "Jane S Piddy" on label, but song on record is "Like Janis"? Cheers
Friert
To be fair Like Janis is the better of the two songs
Yanthyr
Mine is also labelled incorrectly. I assume all BGM 001 pressings are? I notice that other pressings of the album also have Jane S. Piddy listed though.
Black_Hawk_Down
Amazing compilation of unique songs. Good starting point for a Rodriguez collector,
