Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey & his Inter-Reformers Band, Decca 1977

Being a blogger you keep learning things all the time.
Today we found out that very long titles sometimes frustrate
the process. I now understand why I was unable to rip this LP
before. It has all titles at the A-side glued together and at
the B-side, same story. So I wrote all titles in a row but
Winamp-Pro that I use to rip with, could also not handle this.
Now I found out what caused it I can finally post this LP.

Here’s another great album of Juju music from Nigeria.
Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey & his Inter-Reformers Band,
( Africans don’t like short names ) comes in at Global Groove.
Track 1 contains 6 songs in one, track 2 same thing, enjoy this.
Juju is sweet !

  1. Hi Moos.

    I’m not going to comment this particular record but the overall feeling on this blog.

    It’s a very special place and for me, as a musician, it is a source of inspiration. I have never been a fan of mainstream reggae for example and when I discovered your blog I realized how many GREAT reggae recordings were waiting for me in the underground. U-Roy’s album is now making my days, it’s amazingly positive. As well as all the other albums you post here. They all have that special atmosphere hidden inside. I still have loads of stuff waiting here for me as I discovered your blog just two weeks ago or something like that. But I’ll do my homework and listen to it all. And I’ll keep visiting this place as long as I’m able to I think.

    Keep it up and bring the great music to the world. There are thousands of fantastic records that should be popular. But they’re not. However there are people who care about those hidden diamonds.

    Don’t stop, wish you all the best,

    R.

    I am very happy to hear that you find so much of your likings.
    It’s a sure thing that we should spread good music throughout the
    world and so that’s what we do !
    Tell everybody.

  11. I second Rad’s comments! I thought I was bored with and tired of reggae until I started listening to your favorites from the 70’s & 80’s. You had good taste in music even as a youngster.

    Thanks for the Commander Ebenezer Obey juju. This is hypnotic trance-dance at its best!

  13. Whoops, I forgot to add:

    You probably already know this, but the problem you had with long titles is not limited to WinAmp or specific applications, but to Windows itself. Windows XP has a limit of 256 characters for the file name + path (and I believe Vista has a similar limit, 260 or so). It is not that hard to reach this limit, especially when applications insist on placing files in c:documents and settingsusernamemy documentsetc, where 48 characters are already used up just before the “etc”.
