You Think You Really Know Me is the debut album by American experimental music icon Gary Wilson. Originally self-released in 1977 (and re-released again in 1979) to little fanfare, the album eventually gained a cult following. In the late 1990s, Beck namechecked Wilson in one of his most popular songs ("Where It's At"). In 2002, You Think You Really Know Me was reissued by Motel Records.

It is noted as being one of the weirdest and most influential albums released in 1977.[5]
