Knock Three Times was not actually credited as a Tony Orlando recording but as a Dawn recording because Orlando secretly recorded the song

without his record label knowing about it as he was working for a competing label at the time as a producer/singer. The song was released as a single in 1970 from his album "Candida"

and made it to #1 in several countries including the UK and the US. 

In 1971 Billy Crash Craddock took the song to #3 on the country charts.

The song hails from the album "Tuneweaving".
