Pat Thomas & Ebo TaylorPat Thomas & Ebo Taylor ... LP
Terrestrial Funk, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A great singer and a great guitarist – both coming together here in a set that's got way more going on than you'd expect! The group here is tight – lots of congas and bass at the bottom, peppered with horns from a trio, while Ebo Taylor lays down both rhythm and lead guitars – carving out this perfect groove that's richly melodic, but still lean and funky – sometimes with almost a Caribbean sort of vibe, at least in the way the songs explode with color and tone! All tracks are long, and the lead vocals from Pat Thomas are augmented by Paa Joe – on titles that include "Amponsah", "Benya Amanze", "Oye Odo", and "Bue Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Thomas & Ebo TaylorSweeter Than Honey – Calypso Mahuno & High Lifes Celebration ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1980. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
A special collaboration between these two legends of Ghanian music – one that has singer Pat Thomas working with the grooves of Ebo Taylor – in an effort to reclaim the sound of calypso as an African sound! The album's got an unusual mix of Caribbean modes and Ghanian soul – bubbling rhythms that are fitted with highlife touches from Taylor's guitar, and from the warm production of the set – and a mode that's maybe more upbeat and positive than some of the 70s work from either artist. Titles include "Sweeter Than Honey", "Ma Huno", "Ene Nyame Nam A Mensuro", "Hiani Sui Efiri A Oyi Abebrese", and "Keep On Trying". CD

Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas, & Uhuru YenzuHitsville Re-Visited ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Not the Hitsville of Motown fame – but instead a fantastic album of upbeat, hard-grooving highlife – served up by the collaborative efforts of Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas, and Uhuru Yenzu! Taylor is kind of the guiding force here – as he handles arrangements, and uses his guitar to really shape the groove – but Pat Thomas also gets in lots of great vocals too, usually joined by the other singers – in this mode that makes the whole thing maybe feel a bit more spontaneous and personal than other albums of this nature – especially from the time. The date is 1982, but the lean production style makes the whole thing feel like a set from a decade before – with a nicely crispy sound on the long titles "Gyae Su", "Go Slow", "Wiase Ahonya", and "Uhuru Special".

Ebo Taylor/Pat ThomasEnye Woa (original, LeonxLeon keyed up mix)/Atwer Abroba (original, Leo Nanjo rmx) ... 12-inch
Comet (France), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Two rare African funk grooves – each offered up in their original versions, and a mighty cool remix too! First up is "Enye Woa" – a tune by Pat Thomas that builds strongly with a really full energy – percussion snapping under slower-rolling basslines, peppered with horns – really given a sense of soul once the vocals come in! The remix has just a bit more romp in the grooves – a subtle touch, but a nice one – and definitely with some "keyed up" keyboards. "Atwer Abroba" has a skittish rhythm that's somewhere in the Fela Kuti side of the spectrum – but the horns do all sorts of different things, as do the keyboards – and the whole thing rolls out in a fantastic blend raspy vocals and soulful jazz solos! Leon Najo remixes the track with this beaty style that kind of leaps over the top, the dives down to the bottom – encircling the original mix in the process, but almost making it sound farther away. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Pat ThomasComing Home – Original Ghanaian Highlife & Afrobeat Classics 1967 to 1981 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A double-length look at the music of Pat Thomas – a key figure on the scene in Ghana during the 70s, heard here in a variety of settings and styles! The range of sounds promised in the title definitely rings true – as the music starts with early jazzy highlife, then moves through 70s Afro Funk – but Thomas was also always a forward-thinking artist, and some of the final sounds here almost preface changes to come for African artists on the global scene – modes that showcase Pat's work on the European scene after the late 70s coup in Ghana. The vocals are great – as deeply expressive as the rhythms are powerful – and the package features collaborations with Ebo Taylor, work with the famous group Maritata, solo projects, and tracks by the Sweet Beans, Broadway Dance Band, and Ogyatanaa Show Band. Titles include "Super Yaa Amponsah", "Merebre", "Eye Colo", "Yamona", "I Need More", "Who's Free", "Mpaebo", "Revolution", "We Are Coming Home", "Set Me Free", "No Money No Love", "Sack The Devils", "Ma Huno", and "Gyae Su".
