Ebo Taylor - Peace On Earth
(Free MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2011-04-19

We've been spreading the gospel about Ghanean singer/guitarist Ebo Taylor for years now. Some lucky ones were there at the 2009 show we produced for Ebo at La Bellevilloise. The others should definitively check all the upcoming live dates in June... Ebo Taylor released at the end of 2010 a new album, Life And Death, and his label Strut Records followed this release with a double anthology of Highlife & Afrobeat Classics, covering the years from 1973 to 1980, Life Stories, which you absolutely NEED to get/buy/download/hear/etc!! Here's a track extracted from this compilation to download for free, Peace On Earth, for those who still don't believe in the emotional power of Ebo Taylor's music.

From the Life Stories liner notes :
Ebo acknowledges the influence of US jazz rockers Blood Sweat & Tears and – less obviously, perhaps – Deep Purple on this easy going mid-tempo piece, written a few years before it was recorded, when Osibisa and various 'blaxploitation' themes were hip. "I was trying to fuse rock and jazz together with highlife", Ebo recalls. "This kind of music was ahead of its time – not very popular when we recorded it!"
