Connie Price & The Keystones teamed up with two of the finest vocalists from funk’s old guard to offer up a banging 12” – “Wildflowers.” For “Wildflowers,” The Keystones brought in vocalists Lester Abrams and Leslie Smith from L.A. Carnival, the legendary funk ensemble that saw their 1970s opus “Pose A Question” released on Now Again in 2003.

The result is a timeless capsule of gorgeous soul, arranged with complexity and executed with dangerous precision. This twelve inch contains the extended version of “Wildflowers,” and instrumental and a stripped down version of only the dirty, raw drums for samplers and DJs alike.

12″ single. 2005. NA5013.

Various – Midwest Funk
