Is It Because I'm Black/Let Them Hang High

7-inch (Item 15209) Twinight, Late 60s — Condition: Good
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

Beautiful original single of Syl's classic track about racial disenfranchisement. The track's filled with deep deep Chicago soul, and it's a stunning set of haunting guitar-based arrangements that are beyond compare! The flip's a nice original, also written by Syl.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Red label pressing. Plays with some surface noise and crackles on "Is It Because I'm Black". The b-side is pretty noisy.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Event, 1973. Near Mint-
A great funky instrumental, with lots of moog in it – a little like "Popcorn", but funkier! "Pinch Of Salt" is pretty nice too – uptempo and instrumental, with a nice dose of organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

It Must Be Love/From The Top of My Heart
Torrid, Late 60s. Near Mint-
The Steelers were one of the best harmony groups to ever come out of Chicago, and although they never broke as big as some of their east coast counterparts, they cut some pretty darn nice singles in their day – including this one! The record's arranged by the great Floyd Morris, and the cut ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Newmiss, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Sublime stuff! "I Don't Know" is a great deep soul harmony cut – rolling into a midtempo groove from the intro like a rare Stax gem, with some great guitar and organ riffing along with the vocals, which are sung in a mode that's raspy and sweet at the same time! "Look What ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
