Young-Holt Unlimited was a soul-R&B-jazz instrumental group from Chicago that became famous in the late 1960s. First known as the Young-Holt Trio, the original founding members were Eldee Young, Issac "Red" Holt (both formerly with the Ramsey Lewis Trio), and pianist Don Walker, who remained with the group until 1968. In 1968, the ensemble became known as Young-Holt Unlimited.
Young-Holt Unlimited/Trio is best remembered for "Wack Wack" (1967) and "Soulful Strut" (1969), both of which became Top 40 hits on both the R&B and Pop/Rock charts. The latter song was used as the instrumental backing for Barbara Acklin's 1969 hit, "Am I The Same Girl."
