PLEASE GET THE DOOR
Frederick Knight wrote this song for Stacy Lattisaw. Frederick changed some of the words and made it more "sex" than "teen". This female singer wasn't that pleased with the song but her record company release it as her first single. Guess what? It took the number one spot on the Disco,Pop,and Soul charts in 1979 the same time Donna Summer and Sister Sledge were in the top 5 pop charts.This song also stayed in on the charts for 5 months.This female singer never had another top 40 hit. She also was a teacher before she released her LP. Can you name this song and the female singer. (Extra Points if you can tell me her record label and who founded it.)

PLEASE GET THE DOOR
TK Records was one of the record labels started by Henry Stone. It distributed disco stars KC and the Sunshine Band until 1981.

TK Records is closely associated with the early rise of disco music, being the label on which the first disco song to become a #1 hit on the pop music charts was released, "Rock Your Baby" by George McCrae in 1974. Shortly after McCrae's hit the record label struck gold with KC & The Sunshine Band with 5 #1 songs including "Get Down Tonight", "That's the Way I Like It", "Shake Your Booty", "I'm Your Boogie Man" and "Please Don't Go". Other artists who had an impact on the label or on one of its many subsidiary labels include Peter Brown (Drive), Foxy (Dash), Jimmy "Bo" Horne (Sunshine Sound), Gwen McCrae (Cat), T-Connection (Dash) and Anita Ward (Juana). Within a couple of years, TK's notability in disco music would be surpassed by other labels such as Casablanca Records and RSO Records, but in the early years of disco TK was undoubtedly in the top tier of record labels in the genre.

In 1980 TK Records encountered financial problems and the label was acquired by Morris Levy's Roulette Records, and the unification of the labels formed Sunnyview Records. The last single to be released on the TK label was "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Another One Rides the Bus". Once Morris Levy was forced to leave the country in 1986, Henry Stone formed Hot Productions with Paul Klein and continued to re-release the TK catalog until its acquisition by Rhino Records.
