Latest update on 05/11/2015

Instrumental soul group from Chicago with Eldee Young and Isaac Holt, two thirds of the Ramsey Lewis Trio.

Coauthor Eugene Record also led the Chi-Lites. Two of their originals, Too Good To Be Forgotten and Have You Seen Her, Eugene cowrote with Barbara Acklin (see there). In fact Barbara's Am I The Same Girl came out before Soulful Strut. She also cut it for Brunswick, but that company preferred the instrumental version by Young-Holt Unlimited. You can't blame them: Soulful Strut became a millionseller.
