Different Strokes b/w Is It Because I'm Black (New 7")Syl Johnson
Label: Numero Group
Two of Syl Johnson’s biggest cuts, appearing on the same 45 for the first time. Syl’s infinitely sampled 1968 sock-soul smash “Different Strokes” takes up the A-side, while 1969’s moody, political deep soul burner “Is It Because I’m Black” hogs the flip in its original single edit. Available on limited Numero Gold or standard black vinyl and housed in a handsome houndstooth-style sleeve.
