Reggae Covers: Delroy Wilson – Is It Because I’m Black (Syl Johnson)

Posted on Updated on

Delroy Wilson covers Syl Johnson’s 1969 Top 20 classic:

The dark brown shades of my skin only add color to my tears.
That splash against my hollow bones, that rocks my soul.
Something is holding me back:
is it because I’m black?

Well, the Delroy Wilson version is currently deprecated on YouTube. Oh well. I’ll keep an eye on it.
