In the late ‘60s, a musician was discovered in a Detroit bar by two celebrated producers who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics. They recorded an album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. But despite critical acclaim it bombed and he faded into obscurity. This is the story of his rebirth as an almost mythical balladeer and if you accept the possible distortion of reality it makes for a mesmerising and poetic tale.
