Carsten Pieper I never heard about Ebo Taylor before stumbling over him here at Bandcamp, so this compilation is a great way to get to know him better. There is newer material by him here on BC, but I went for this collection as I generally have a very soft spot for 70s Afrobeat.

about

Following his recent studio album with Afrobeat Academy, 'Love And Death', his first international release, Ghanaian highlife guitar legend Ebo Taylor teams up again with Strut for a long overdue definitive compilation of his seminal 1970s recordings, 'Life Stories'.

This compilation revisits this heyday of Taylor's work, focusing on his solo albums and some of his lesser known side projects including the dynamite Apagya Show Band and short-lived Taylor-led combos Assase Ase, Super Sounds Namba and The Pelikans. The selection also touches on his writing and production work for C.K. Mann and a collaboration recording with fellow member of early ‘70s nightclub band Blue Monks, Pat Thomas.
