MY LOVE AND MUSIC was originally released in 1975 on Gapophone Records, George Prah's label, hailing from Ghana. Only available in very limited quantity (reportedly 500 copies) due to the musical vacuum imposed by the military dictatorship in the country at the time.
Laid back, lush, highlife vibrations from start to finish, with noticeable reggae influences throughout.
Ebo Taylor is one of Ghana's finest producer/arrangers. Taylor was heavily influential in the unique sound that emerged from the country in the 70's, a combination of traditional Ghanaian with Afro-beat, jazz, and funk rhythms.
He worked with bands including Stargazers Band, Broadway Dance Band, Black Star Highlife Band (with Teddy Osei and Sol Amarfio who later joined Osibisa), Apagya Show Band and fellow musicians C.K. Mann, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and the legendary Pat Thomas.
2016 see's Ebo celebrate his 80th birthday - still touring! - and we are very proud to release two of his stand-out, classic albums – MY LOVE AND MUSIC and TWER NYAME, following on from the EBO TAYLOR and CONFLICT re-issues. Available from 08.04.2016
