Ashanti Brothers Band - Kill me and Fly,
Philips West African Records 1978

I was trying to find me some usefull information on this topic,
but Ashanti Brothers Band's album 'Kill me and Fly' seemed
( how about this word ) ungoogleable. The leader of the band's called
Osei Vasco, and that's really all I know. Being from 1978, I must
say, the vinyl is in very good condition and spins beautiful.
And then, the music, I have seldom heard such great highlife,
I'm very fund of this sound with warm vocal harmony
and hammond organ !

tracks;

1 Kill me and fly
2 Onipa retu ne nan
3 Saa na yede beye wo
4 Asem bone se hiani
5 Gyae nkonta buo yi
6 Kusa wo bankye
7 Me wu a mo bebre

Here's a song by the Ashanti Brothers Band from a LP titled Phonogram to Polygram - Congratulations - 10th Anniversary 1969-79. Other groups like Teacher and his Africana, Gomoa Afransi Merry Makers, Sweet Talks & Melo Togo Band are showcased. Thanks for the LP Moos.

Also, I've read that members of this band were once part of The African Brothers Band.
