The definitive compilation of Ebo Taylor's seminal 1970s recordings.

"a thrilling, relentlessly upbeat ride through some of the finest highlife and Afrobeat ever made" (Okayplayer)

This compilation revisits this heyday of Taylor's work, focusing on his solo albums and some of his lesser known side projects including the dynamite Apagya Show Band and short-lived Taylor-led combos Assase Ase, Super Sounds Namba and The Pelikans. The selection also touches on his writing and production work for C.K. Mann and a collaboration recording with fellow member of early ‘70s nightclub band Blue Monks, Pat Thomas.
