2LP Vinyl – STRUT72LP

Following his first international release, 'Love And Death', Strut offer a long overdue definitive compilation of Ebo's seminal 1970s recordings.

'Life Stories' revisits the heyday of Taylor's work, focusing on his solo albums and lesser known side projects such as the dynamite Apagya Show Band and short-lived Taylor-led combos Assase Ase, Super Sounds Namba and The Pelikans.

It also touches on his writing and production work for C.K. Mann and a collaboration with fellow member of early '70s nightclub band Blue Monks, Pat Thomas. Make sure to check the rare 15-minute excursion 'Aba Yaa', the original version of the poignant 'Love And Death' and the smudged Afrobeat Disco of 'Ene Nyame 'A' Mensuro.
