This Memphis group included some excellent vocalists, although they didn't enjoy as much success as some other Stax artists. Ollie Nightingale (born Ollie Hoskins), Quincy Clifton Billops, Jr., Nelson Lesure, Bill Davis, and Rochester Neal were the original members. Billops had been in the Mad Lads. Their biggest single was "I Got a Sure Thing" in 1968, which made the R&B Top 20. It was also their lone hit. Nightingale left in 1970 and was replaced by Sir Mack Rice. Neal, Billops, and Davis became the Ovations in 1972. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide

Ollie "Nightingale" Hoskins died October 26, 1997 in a hospital in Germantown, TN, just outside of Memphis. You can see his grave in West Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery at the findagrave website.
