Soulful Strut



In 1968, the group renamed itself Young-Holt Unlimited, and replaced Walker with Ken Chaney. Under their new name, the group scored a number three Hot 100 hit with "Soulful Strut," the backing instrumental track from Barbara Acklin's "Am I the Same Girl." "Soulful Strut" sold a million copies with the gold record awarded by the RIAA in January 1969, less than 3 months after the track's release.[1] Unfortunately, follow-up releases failed to match "Soulful Strut"'s commercial success, and the group had disbanded by 1974, with Young and Holt continuing to play in Chicago small bands.
