Pat Thomas is a Ghanaian highlife musician. Born in Agona, Ghana in 1946, Thomas early inspiration to become a singer was a vocalist Joss Aikins. Thomas started his musical career in 1960s when he collaborated with Ebo Taylor. In 1974 he formed the band Sweet Beans and with them he recorded his first album False lover. He recorded his second album Pat Thomas Introduces Marijata with the band Marijata. After the coup in Ghana in 1979 he relocated to Berlin and later settled in Canada.

Ghanaian highlife master and The Golden Voice Of Africa, Pat Thomas, returns with his first full career retrospective on Strut this Autumn, covering his late ‘60s big band highlife recordings through to the burger highlife movement of the early ‘80s. Growing up with music around him ( my uncle, King Onyina, was an important highlife musician ), Thomas was inspired to become a singer after hearing vocalist Joss Aikins: He sang with Broadway Dance Band and Decca in Ghana chose him to sing with any group that came into their studios. So, tracks like ‘Coming Home’ came about that way, written on the spot. A second Marijata album followed before a damaging coup in Ghana in 1979. Jerry Rawlings’ house-cleaning was designed to stop corruption but it seriously damaged our country’s music culture.

Notes

"Ghanaian highlife master and “The Golden Voice Of Africa”, Pat Thomas, with his first full career retrospective covering his late ‘60s big band highlife recordings through to the “burger highlife” movement of the early ‘80s." (From Strut press release)
The spine and disks state 1967-1981 while the front cover states 1964-1981. The Strut website (https://strut.greedbag.com/buy/coming-home-181/) implies that 1967 would be correct "When a new incarnation of Broadway Dance Band was created in ‘67, led by Ebo Taylor, Thomas received his first big break."
