Although it wasn't unusual for Quad 8's to have reshuffled sequencing compared to the vinyl version, this one seems a bit more radical than normal, even for Columbia.

This album did make the charts, but Lee only connected with the public once, with "Do You Know What I Mean" from 1971, and that took time to build radio play. Given that it was on A&M, suppose it's just as well they never did a quad on him, who knows how that woulda turned out...

5th and Do You Know What I Mean were Lee's moment in the sun. Most of his A&M albums got a good amount of airplay on FM stations. His third album "Lee Michaels" was written up in Hi-Fi mags as synthesizing well. It does.

About 15 years ago, all his A&M albums were released on CD by One-Way. Neither Nice Day nor Tailface were reissued. Both were on Columbia. Absolute Lee, an independent project was promised on CD, but never materialized.
