It is written that King Floyd and Jean Knight travelled north to Malaco Recording Studios in Jackson, MS to record their million seller songs. Floyd’s “Groove Me” and Knight’s “Mr. Big Stuff”. The major record companies were not interested in these two artists, saw Floyd song was released independently and Knight’s song was finally picked up by Stax but it took some convincing because Stax’s executives “were’nt hearing it”. Once Floyd and Knight started climbing the charts, Atlantic would pick up distribution for Floyd and Knight would play a part in keeping Stax afloat.
