An R&B vocal group from Memphis, Tennessee, USA. The lead singer Louis Williams sounded very much like Sam Cooke, and the group built their career on a merger of the Sam Cooke sound with southern gospel harmonies. Recording for the Goldwax label, their first hit in 1965 was "It's Wonderful To Be In Love" (number 22 R&B, number 61 pop). Although producing a score of southern hits, they had only one other national hit on Goldwax with "Me And My Imagination' (number 40 R&B) in 1967. The original group(Melvin Jones, Nathan 'Pedro' Lewis) soon broke up and Williams formed a new Ovations group with three former members of Ollie And The Nightingales, Rochester Neal, Bill Davis and Quincy Billops Jnr. They reached the charts again with the MGM-subsidiary label Sounds Of Memphis. Reverting to the parent label, the group had its biggest hit in 1973 by fully exploiting Williams" ability to sound like Sam Cooke with a remake of the singer's 1962 hit, "Having A Party" (number 7 R&B, number 56 pop). The group was sadly never able to reach the charts again and soon disbanded.

Louis Williams Jnr. (lead singer) (b. 24th February, 1941, Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A.
d. 13th October 2002, Methodist Healthcare University Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A.)
