Lee Michaels + Frosty

C9akPAaXYAAUV6XOne of the most forgotten innovators of the early rock years was one Lee Michaels

Steve Winwood is often mentioned near the top of any list of early rock organists (Rick Wakeman, Ray Manzarek, Keith Emerson and Ken Hensley deserve their due, to be sure).

But, Lee Michaels deserves props because he did it with just his sensational voice and a drummer named Frosty. That's it. And on his first album, he broke serious ground.

His big hit came later, with "Do You Know What I Mean."

But, on this Music Friday, we link to the first album, start to finish. Yes, it has the obligatory drum solo (if you're not into them, jump from the 5:50 mark to the 16:00 minute mark).  But, the pure soul is something precious.
