Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey& his International Brothers -Miliki Sound, Decca West Africa 1973

Ebenezer Obey, front

From Bahia, we jump back across the ocean to West Africa
where originally most of Bahia’s inhabitant’s ancesters came from.
It has indeed been some time since we had us some of this
sweet Nigerian sound. Miliki Sound is what Chief Ebenezer
called it in 1973. Nowadays it goes for juju. One way or the
other, mellow but still funky, enjoy Chief Ebenezer Obey &
his International Brothers.

    Thank you! Came across this site via the ‘Obey’ graphic on Owl’s mightily affirming blog and checked this joint (as Owl might say) out. I’m really enjoying it :-) thanks for turning me on to Obey!
