Product Description

Rodriguez Rocks Live in Australia

This Album provides a glimpse of Rodriguez’ Live Shows on his successful tour of Australia in 2014. Included on the album are four cover tunes that he makes his own. Because this is a live album, like his show, there is a mixture of his own songs and those written by others – for instance Cole Porter and Jefferson  Airplane.

The lead song – “Climb Up On My Music” was on Rodriguez’ second studio album (“Coming from Reality”) originally released in 1971. It is a perennial favorite.

“Street Boy” was originally released in 1981 on the Australian Live album “Alive” and re-released by Light in the Attic Records on their CD “Coming from Reality” as a bonus track. Because it’s relatively poorly known its inclusion on this album is nothing but a bonus.

“Somebody to Love” a Jefferson Airplane tune shows the all encompassing nature of Rodriguez’ musical taste – he takes a 1967 tune from the “counterculture scene” in San Francisco and makes it his own.

The final tune on the album is also somebody else’s work – “Learnin’ the Blues” which was made famous by Frank Sinatra – but again Rodriguez makes it his own.

One should note that Rodriguez has played all over the world, not just in Australia. At the beginning of 2016 he had a tour of South Africa playing Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. Also in 2016 he played 8 cities in Europe, 9 shows in Canada and 3 shows in the US – usually to sold-out crowds – all in his ‘70’s…….
