TERRY KNIGHT AND THE PACK - I (Who Have Nothing)

TERRY KNIGHT AND THE PACK - 'I (Who Have Nothing)'/'Numbers' (Lucky Eleven LE-230) Oct 1966

An underated garage rock band from Flint, Michigan who are in desperate need of a re-evaluation. I don't think any Terry Knight and the Pack retrospective has ever been released on CD and their compilation appearances are few and far between.

'I (Who Have Nothing)' is a version of the Leiber and Stoller tune probably better known as a hit by Ben E King. Ex Detroit DJ, Terry Knapp or (Knight) handles the soul searchin' vocals and the addition of strings added to the mix makes for an interesting reading. So much so, that the 45 was a big regional hit for the band and made the lower 40s of Billboard.

The flip 'Numbers' written by Knight is a crunchin' garage rock mover that smokes, great fuzztone sound also.

Terry Knight was murdered in November 2004. He was stabbed multiple times in a fight with his daughters boyfriend.

  2. A lot of the old TK & the Pack tunes are available on Mark Farner's web site under, "The Pack Anthology". If you were around in the Mid 60's in the Flint area, you will remember these songs.
