The LA Carnival Would Like To Pose A Question on 2LP
The L.A. Carnival's (formerly the Les Smith Soul Band) Would Like To Pose A Question was one of the first previously-unreleased funk and soul albums issued by Now-Again, way back in 2003, and it still sounds amazing today. Well, it would have to, it's the brainchild of bandleader/drummer/singer/songwriter Lester Abrams who crafted hit singles like "Minute by Minute" by the Doobie Brothers. Back in early-70s Omaha, however, he brought a multiracial band into the Pacific Avenue studio to cut an album's worth of material. Only one single – "Color" b/w "Blink Man" – was ever issued, and this album sat on master tapes in Abrams' closet until Egon dug them up in 2001!
