Young-Holt Unlimited succeeded in mixing jazz and R&B into songs helped define the the music of late 60s and early 70s.

Eldee Young and Redd Holt were former members of the Ramsey Lewis Trio. In 1966 they started up the Young-Holt Unlimited establishing themselves as one of the best-known instrumental groups mixing jazz and R&B into songs that captured the essence of the late '60s and early 70's music.

The group are best known for their 1968 top 10 hit "Soulful Strut" and recorded 9 albums over their career with this 1973 album capturing many the soul hits of the moments.

This 9-track set is a crate digger and DJ's delight with classic period packaging capturing the Blaxploitation film sounds and style of the time.

This was the final album Young-Hold Unlimited recorded Curtis Mayfield versions of "Freddie's Dead" hit #4, "Superfly" hit #8 on Billboard "Soulful Strut" by Young-Holt hit #3 on Billboard The cover alone screams 70s blaxploiation and will jump off the shelf For fans of Curtis Mayfield, Ray Charles, Jazz Crusaders Eldee Young and Redd Holt were former members of the Ramsey Lewis Trio "Plays Super Fly is the rare cash-in record with integrity and invention to spare" _Jason Ankeny, AllMusic Guide
