Sixto Rodriguez has three albums in the top 30 of this week’s Australian sales chart, fuelled by the announcement of his upcoming national tour and the free-to-air TV broadcast of the Oscar-winning documentary Looking for Sugar Man.
The first Rodriguez album Cold Fact (Inertia) from 1969 is currently at No. 11, outpacing its previous chart peak of No. 23. Also on this week’s ARIA Albums chart, the Searching for Sugar Man (Legacy/Sony) soundtrack is at No. 22 and his second and final studio set Coming From Reality from 1971 (Light in the Attic/Inertia) is at No. 25. The chart is led this week by Ariana Grande’s My Everything (Universal), while Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” (Big Machine/Universal) leads the singles chart.
