Just crank it up. One of the best chart singles in my lifetime. My other favorites are Livin' For The City and Family Affair.

I remember my one song singing lead was on a cover of Know What I Mean in the early 80's in a good band I was in then

Saw him and Frosty in late '69 or or early '70 with Albert King and Zephyr (with Tommy Bolin on guitar). I enjoyed Michaels but he definitely did not steal that show.

Lee Michaels was one of the 1st to get some Boogie amps [Barry Melton of C. Joe & the Fish mighta been 1st].
[Just trying to add some TGP angle there...] :^)

Right! He issued a challenge to amp makers to supply him with some loud-as-sh*t amplification and set up an audition at a S.F. ballroom (Avalon?), inviting amp makers to bring their products, set 'em up, and see if Michaels could blow 'em up. I guess Randy Smith's goods withstood the test. What I can't figure: weren't SVTs around then? Were they not loud enought??! Or did he blow 'em up??

I saw him once in LA in '72 with Freddy King opening. Had not heard of King then, but was suitably impressed and terminally infected! Michaels and Frosty were deafening!!!
