In his own time, rough-voiced Lee Sain found precious little success, despite being discovered by Tom Nixon and Josephine Bridges as an opening act for the Temprees in Flint, MI. He was signed to their independent We Produce label just as the latter was picked up for distribution by Stax/Volt, but even with the Memphis label behind "Them Hot Pants" in 1971 and "She's My Old Lady Too" in 1972, neither record managed to chart. Sain's "I Can't Fight It," however, has turned up on volume four of Northern Soul Fever, and he is featured on the third of the Complete Stax/Volt Soul Singles.
