Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, singer-songwriter Frederick Knight was with a  few other record labels before he came to Stax.

“I’ve Been Lonely For So Long” was his first of two hit singles while with the Stax label.  Composed by Knight and Weaver, the song also appeared on Knight’s  Stax Album of the same name. Released in 1973, the LP charted #58 in 1974.

TRIVIA: Frederick Knight’s  “I’ve Been Lonely For So Long”  LP contained a cover of  “Someday We’ll Be Together,”  the one and the same Johnny Bristol, Jackey Beavers and Harvey Fuqua penned song,  that was the last Supremes 1969  hit recorded by Diana Ross.

After a second hit,  Stax folded and Knight started his own record label Juana Records, where singer Anita Bell had a  1979  #1 Pop and R&B hit with the Knight penned song “Ring My Bell” here in the USA and across the pond in the UK.
