Is It Because I'm Black/ Let Them Hang High by Syl Johnson
Label: Twinight 125 Year: 1969
Condition: M- $15.00
Is It Because I'm Black/ Let Them Hang HighThis single's A side is specially edited from a much longer (7:35) album track. The uptempo, Funky Soul B side didn't appear on any of Johnson's albums. Note: This copy has Near Mint labels with a very light touch of storage wear. The vinyl grades a strong EX, reflecting some noticeable scuffs and some storage wear. The quiet A side grades a strong-EX for audio, reflecting light surface noise audible especially near the beginning, but no distortion. The B side audio is Near Mint, and I'm grading the audio Near Mint overall, because the A side is so close to that grade. (This scan is a representative image from our archives.)
