Syl Johnson

Is It Because I'm Black ('80 Version) b/w Sock It To Me ('80 Version)

After crashing out of Hi Records in 1979, Syl Johnson returned to his independent roots and reanimated his Shama imprint. A decade removed from his Twinight hits, Syl’s updated takes on “Is It Because I’m Black” and “Sock It To Me” reflect the shimmery production style of the time and a recommitment to the blues.
