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.

Women/Breaking Point
Twinight, Late 60s. Very Good-
Obscure and wonderful! The single's one of the many rare sides produced by Syl Johnson for Twinight, and it's very much in the vein of his own work! "Breaking Point" begins with fast fast choppy guitar – riffing away madly, while horns blare over the top, and Johnny sings in a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of our all-time favorite solo tracks by Michael Jackson – that incredibly catchy tune from the Thriller album – the one with that groovy vocal "Mama Say Mama Sa Mama Sa Ku Sa" chorus! It always sounds a bit silly, but that's part of the appeal – and the tune has a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Two of Horace's best late 60s groovers – both done with a hard-rolling soul jazz approach! "Psychedelic Sally" is particularly nice – with a strutting little hook that made the track one of the bigger Blue Notes of the time! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, 1971. Very Good
Funky funky Rufus! This one's a monster – with great drums, rolling bass, and riffing guitar that scratches up the whole dark track to keep it nice and funky! Rufus' vocals hardly get in the way, and the cut's one of his funkiest ever! 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Early 60s. Very Good
This is Hank's first version of the track, not the one produced by James Brown. That doesn't stop it from being nice and soulful, though – with a great rolling R&B groove that made it one of his best early moments! Killer vocals on both sides, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
