A rare LP from the afrofunk master.
Ebo Taylor’s Ebo Taylor and the Pelikans is being rereleased on vinyl by Mr Bongo, ahead of a new studio album from the eighty-year-old musician in 2018.
Originally released by Ghanian Abookyi label in 1976, Ebo Taylor and the Pelicans is one of Taylor’s most elusive releases, and marked the first time he sang on tracks, like ‘Come Along’ which was later sampled on Sadat X’s ‘Remember That’.
The album saw the legendary musician, producer, composer and arranger joining forces with 12-piece Cape Coast Ghanian band ‘The Pelikans’ led by Bessa Simmona with rhythm guitarist Fifi Orleans Lindsay.
