Ebo Taylor

Hello groovers, yesterday I made a little trip to Belgium.
I visited my friend Kali, he is a collector too and uses to
travell to Africa to find lp’s. We had a nice afternoon
listening to, and talking about music. I came home with
some fresh posting material amongst which this here lp
by a very popular musician. Ebo Taylor is here first time
with ‘Twer Nyame’. The albums a-side is from 1978 and
b-side from 1977. A very nice piece of highlife, give
it a spin and agree, wonderful stuff,
get it & spread it..

Let me show you Afri Kali on Youtube, we see him
searching through dusty and dirty lp’s in Ghana,
take a look and subscribe to his YT channel..
..scratchy but cool..


1 Twer nyame
2 Peace on earth
3 Atwer abroba

    Wow!… Moos, this one right here is a jackpot!… Ebo Taylor is one of the greatest highlife artistes from his era still performing today and appealing to an international audience… hiphop artistes like Ludacris have sampled his songs and he continues to appeal to audiences both young and old today… people pay good money for original copies of this rare LP … its simply amazing to have a chance to hear the original record…this is good promotion right here & I will definitely attend his show the next time he performs anywhere near me…

      Yeah that’s right. I pulled the handle of the fruitmachine and out came
      this treasure. I’m sure to go to his concerts too when having the chance.
      I didn’t even know he’s still performing, saw he must be 78 years of age now,
      an achievement to be proud of.
      Shame about that small jumpskip at the beginning of this record.

    Thanks Moos for this true treasure. The magnificent lead vocals especially on the track “Twer Nyame”, belong to Pat Thomas; a great Ghanaian highlife musician alongside Ebo Taylor. Ebo Taylor would almost always feature Pat Thomas to sing lead in his songs. This is a wonderful album and Sir, I say thank you very much once again for posting it!

    It’s great to hear that another of the highlife giants of the period is still around, and actually out there, performing. A fine sample of his talent, too. Thanks, Moos.
