If there is one record that you need to buy in the next month, it undoubtedly needs to be Strut's new retrospective release on Ghana Afrobeat & Highlife legend Ebo Taylor, entitled Life Stories. This new release is solid from start to finish, highlighting a number of great rare tracks by the legendary Ghanaian guitarist during the musicians most productive years from 1973 to 1980. Some of the many amazing tracks that appear on the record include the funky gems "Heaven", "Atwer Abroba", his collaboration with Pat Thomas titled "Ene Nyame Nam 'A' Mensuro", his collaborative effort with Uhuru-Yenzu titled "What is Life", and the funky "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" that he composed and arranged for the group Apagya Showband. Overall, it's hard to capture a legend like Ebo Taylor in just one double vinyl record, however Strut has done an amazing job in bringing together and highlighting this legendary Ghanaian artist's most brilliant work in this "must-own" retrospective record. Without a doubt, one of the year's best releases!
