Counting Down My Top 10 Records of 2009, Pt. 3

This is the third post in a ten-part series. You can view part one here, and part two over here.

This summer, local label Light in the Attic reissued Rodriguez's sophomore recording, Coming From Reality, which the Detroit-based singer-songwriter originally released in 1971.

Reading with the simplistic-yet-refined grace of a Raymond Carver short story and sounding like the Velvet Underground and Donovan having an unexpectedly fruitful meeting of the minds, Coming From Reality may not be as instantly addictive as his debut, Cold Fact, but it reveals itself slowly as a quieter masterpiece. "Think of You" is the standout track for me; clip after the jump.
