Knight cut "I've Been Lonely for So Long" in Birmingham, Alabama, with a seasoned southern soul crew behind him, and hit again in 1975 with "I Betcha Didn't Know That. The song "Be For Real", written by Knight and originally performed by Marlena Shaw, was covered by Leonard Cohen for his album The Future and subsequently by The Afghan Whigs for the movie Beautiful Girls. He only released 4 albums under his name; 1987's "Knight Kap" being the last.
Frederick Knight (born August 15, 1944, Birmingham, Alabama) is an American R&B singer, songwriter and record producer. He had his only UK hit single, "I've Been Lonely For So Long," in 1972. The song was on the chart for 10 weeks and reached number 22. Lack of further chart activity leaves him labelled as a one-hit wonder. However, Knight did appear in the documentary film, Wattstax, which was released in 1973.

Frederick Knight may be mostly known for penning Anita Ward's massive "Ring My Bell" in 1979, the Alabamian was a multi-talented soul singer, writer, musician, arranger and producer who never preferred a singing career, but wound up churning out one of Southern Soul's most appetizing album, aptly released by Stax. Having originally written it for someone else, Knight decided to lay down a rough version of it using acoustic guitars, bass, hi-hat drums and a wooden plank thumping on top off a bar-stool. Overdubbing his own vocals (harmonies, high falsetto, bass leads and in-song spoken intermezzo), Knight created a multi-layered, warm, delightful soul venture that has rightfully become a classic within the genre. But in all honesty, the entire album (his only one for Stax) is a masterpiece of deep Soul, funky rhythms, quirky beats and snappy lyrics.
