In addition to both albums’ new CD and black vinyl editions, a new picture disc vinyl LP for Cold Fact replicates the “Rodriguez in a crystal ball” image from its cover, and Coming from Reality is showcased with a new bottle-clear color vinyl LP, referencing the bottle in the album’s cover photo.
The CD for Coming from Reality features three additional bonus tracks, originally recorded in 1972-’73 for a third album that was never completed. The tracks were co-produced by Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore, who also co-produced Cold Fact. The tracks were first issued in 2009 on the Light in the Attic CD release, and they were also featured on the Searching for Sugar Man soundtrack.
“Having my albums back in the world is incredible. What a ride! These are amazing times.”
