Was the Lucky Eleven label (Terry Knight and the Pack are the only ones I know who recorded for them) out of Detroit?

Hi mackdaddyg.

Good question ( and well observed ) and yes, there were other acts that recorded for the LUCKY 11 label.

Lucky 11 was out of FLINT, Michigan and the reason it did not make the listing is that distribution was through CAMEO / PARKWAY out of Philadelphia.

Other Flint-based labels have made the list because THEY were distributed out of Detroit.

Interestingly, one of the first releases for the label was " Lucky 11 Rock " as by Chuck Slaughter with Buddy Ray and The Shamrocks ( # 1111 )

Another act on the label was Roxie Williams who had two releases for the label, and of course, the late Terry Knight.

Again, good question, thanks for posting.

Aha! Okay, that makes sense.

Hi again mackdaddyg.


Glad you mentioned Terry Knight.

Back in the days of " super producer " and " super-group " Knight led the pack ( no pun intended )
Grand Funk Railroad ( with ex-Pack members including Mark Farner ) and Bloodrock among the acts he produced.

Somebody contacted me (email ) and told me that early in his career, Terry Knight was a D.J. in Flint or Detroit ( again, back in the days when that meant one worked on the radio )

The same individual tells me that Terry Knight's first " real " producing job was at Cameo / Parkway ( with who he also recorded for ) so maybe he was lucky to have started out on a small label distributed by them ( again, no pun intended )

This often happened with recording acts, but was not the norm for a " producer " to arise from a label-switch.

I remember in 1970, during a visit to Capitol Records, he had a small office in the Tower, but he was not in the time of that visit, and I was later told by a Capitol staffer ( about 1974 ) that " he's no longer with us "

Another thing I remember from that period ( again, 1974-1975 ) was the many law-suits ( and counter law-suits ) that were flying back and forth naming Terry Knight at every turn ( nothing new there... for Capitol )

As well, I recall Terry Knight was murdered in Texas trying to protect his daughter from an irate druggie ( her boy friend ? )
He'd gone there to sort things out and lost his life in the process.

Now, a usual unsung talent from days-gone-by, but he is still well-remembered in Flint, Michigan.

My thanks to Ed ' Jack ' Rothstein

Thanks.
