YELLOW VINYL. 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 RSD 2022 release is pressed on Mellow Yellow vinyl!

Press Quotes

Plays Super Fly is the rare cash-in record with integrity and invention to spare

     —Jason Ankeny, AllMusic Guide

Half the album consists of covers of the famous Super Fly soundtrack, but they might outdo the originals--Young and Holt's radically different versions accentuate the danceable and jazzy elements of the music, along with its weird, wah-wah'ed side

     —Chicago Reader
