Another August STAX coincidence: FREDERICK KNIGHT ...

Another August STAX coincidence:

FREDERICK KNIGHT had a big Stax hit in the early 1970s with "I've Been Lonely For So Long"; he was born on August 15, 1944.

LARRY GRAHAM, the former bassist of Sly and the Family Song, did a song with Graham Central Station, "I've Been Waiting", which swipes, big-time, "I've Been Lonely"; he was born on August 14, 1946.

I really need to dive into the whole Motown-Harlem black music history, because I suspect there is a line that runs from the great bluesman to early pioneers in jazz into do-wop to "progressive" jazz (like Bitches Brew) to small portions of disco to hip-hop and the like.

I enjoyed your story of the time share, but vacations with 3 year olds CAN be tough! And y'know, I somehow missed the Stax set! I have some old Motown box set collections (NOT the complete singles series that's coming out currently, at least overseas (I keep reading about them in Mojo and uncut, but haven't seem 'em here)) and a series of Atlantic singles, but no Stax! Nice thought regarding Julie, but her current obsession? Abba! The Greatest Hits--over and over! And I have all the other CDs, but no, just that one, over and over ( I dig Abba the most as well, I should point out. They'd be in my top 10 bands somewhere, beleive it or not...)
