or this album, Ebo joined forces with 12-piece band ‘The Pelikans’ from the Cape Coast region of Ghana led by Bessa Simmona, with rhythm guitarist Fifi Orleans Lindsay. A genuine ‘holy-grail’ of Ghanaian music and one of Ebo’s most sought-after, the album was released on the small Abookyi label.

Named after a nightclub they played in called PELIKANS, and sung in English and Fante, this was the first album where Ebo sang on tracks, such as the classic ‘Come Along’, on which he also plays keyboard. This song clearly defined a new direction in highlife and has become a Ghanaian funk anthem. ‘Come Along’ formed the basis of Sadat X’s ‘Remember That’ hip hop jam from 2011. This official Mr Bongo re-issue is packaged in our new & improved heavyweight ‘tip on’sleeves; printed in Japan, pressed on high quality vinyl, with label designs and artwork as per the original release.
