Throwback Thursday: Marie Knight - "I Thought I Told You Not To Tell Them"

Best known for her booming contralto voice and gospel duets with Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Arkansas-to-New Jersey gospel and R&B singer Marie Knight scored a minor hit in 1958 with the secular R&B tune "I Thought I Told You Not To Tell Them", that appeared on the album Soul On Fire. A versatile singer who also dabbled in jazz, pop-soul, some jump-blues and doo wop-flavored R&B throughout her long career, Knight also became known to rock fans after English rock band Manfred Mann covered her 1961 single "Come Tomorrow" for a big UK hit in 1965. .
