The Knight Brothers were Richard Dunbar, who was born on 31 May 1939 and James Leon Diggs who was born on 11 October 1938. (We are not sure who is who in the photo: can anyone help, please?) They first recorded in 1958 as part of a vocal group called The Starfires. They signed to Checker Records in 1963, achieving major success with “Temptation’s about to get me” in 1965. They left Checker in 1968. Dunbar continued singing with The Orioles.
