In 1968, after nearly two decades in gospel music, the Nightingales switched to pop music at Stax Records. Working with such producers as Booker T. Jones, Isaac Hayes, David Porter, Al Bell, Homer Banks, and Sir Mack Rice, they created an inspired combination of hard gospel quartet-style harmony and molten Memphis soul. This compilation brings together the group's hard-to-find Stax album with four equally rare singles. The first thirteen tracks feature the tortured, needle-sharp vocals of original leader Ollie Hoskins, while the remainder find replacement Tommy Tate digging in with raw passion.
