Ebenezer Obey—The Horse The Man And His Son?

Side One
Ko Sogbon To Le Da
Baba Oni Ketekete
Ile Aiye Fun Igba Die Ni

Side Two
Eni Ri Nkan He
Agba Ilu Mo Juba
Eso Pele
Ere Ni Tiwa
Tani Ngo Ro Temi Fun
Igba Nba Jo

Ebenezer Obey is one the masters of Nigerian juju music. He made so many records. I just happen to have this one on cassette, and it just kills. If I don't get lost in the Yoruba language vocals, the secret discourse between guitar and drums makes me dance. You know: that really mellow kind of dance that rich people did at socialites' parties in 1970s Lagos? Yeah, you know the one.

Hello from Spain. I want to say you have a WONDERFUL website. Thanks.
