Ebo Taylor – Life Stories

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

Life Stories revisits the 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.

Tracks include the anthemic Heaven, sampled by Usher on his hit with Ludacris, She Don’t Know, the original version of the poignant Love And Death and the rare 15-minute nugget, Aba Yaa. The package features rare photos, original album artwork and sleeve notes by Soundway Records’ Miles Cleret. Available April 12th
