Originally released in 1977, Ebo Taylor's self-titled album is a rarity that truly exposes the genius of the Ghanaian producer and arranger. Having spent most of the 1970s involved in Ghana's afro-funk output, working with different bands and musicians alike, Taylor put forward his own unique blend of Ghanaian highlife and afro-beat with this self-titled release. The six songs that make up the album exemplify Taylor's desire to experiment and move beyond the constraints of colonial influences on Highlife and African musical traditions. Saana combines highlife guitars and jazz horns with a funked up rhythm and the sweetest chants, a vibe carried over on Ntsir A with its funky horns and Ghanaian singing. Throughout the album Taylor injects elements of funk, jazz and afrobeat into his compositions without being obvious, instead channelling the experimentation he once referred to as - a way to develop our African music to enable us to get global attention. Heaven is perhaps the album's highlight and widely recognised as one of the finest examples of Ghanaian afrobeat from the late 70s. Its popularity has endured through the decades and the song even found a new lease of life after Usher sampled it. Ebo Taylor is being reissued by Mr Bongo as part of their 'Classic African Recordings' series, giving fans of Afrobeat and the more adventurous Ghanaian music a chance to finally experience the album in all its glory. The LP features artwork restored from original. Produced on heavyweight vinyl. Limited Edition LPs. CD in beautiful digipack format with Obi. Tracklisting 1. Saana 2. Ntsir A 3. Bra 4. Ohye Atar Gyan 5. Heaven 6. Amponsah
