Ebenezer Obey & his International
Brothers Band – In the 60’s vol. 1
Decca (West Africa) 1980


Closing the juju marathon we’ve got us this album of sixties
songs by the great Ebenezer Obey. It was released in 1980
but covers twelve songs from the sixties. Those were the days
he was leading the band under the name Chief Commander Obey
and his International Brothers Band and before changing into the
Inter-Reformers Dance Band. Ebenezer Obey’s real name is
Ebenezer Fabiyi. The 12 songs on this record were all best
sellers throughout the 1960’s, listen and share.
The chief is 76 jaar old at the moment..

Vandaag sluiten we de juju marathon af met dit album vol songs
uit de zestiger jaren van Ebenezer Obey. Hij kwam uit in 1980 maar
de nummers zijn uit de 60’s. Dat waren de dagen dat Ebenezer de
band nog leidde onder de naam Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey
and his International Brothers Band en voordat hij die veranderde
in the Inter-Reformers Dance Band. Ebenezer Obey’s echte naam is
Ebenezer Fabiyi. De twaalf songs op deze plaat waren allemaal
best sellers in de zestiger jaren, luister en geef weer door.
De chief is vandaag de dag 76 jaar oud..

    Thanks for the juju marathon moos! Did you deliberately cover all the generations? I noticed you posted an album from each decade – the 60s through the 90s.

    Great to have another Obey album, and one that doesn’t shove anybody’s particular religion at you, either. Thanks!
