✨✧ Redd Holt UnlimitedOther Side Of The Moon ... LP
Paula, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
This was Redd's second album after the breakup of the Young-Holt team – and it's also the tightest. The best cuts have this hard funk sound that features tightly stepping drums by Redd, and a classic choppy groove that's best summed up in the cut "Do It Baby", a favorite with hip hoppers back in the 80s, with a classic sample riff that you'll recognize instantly. Other nice short funky numbers include "Gimme Some Mo" and "I Shot The Sherrif" – and the album also features some nice spacey jazz numbers, like "Tica Chita", "Beware Little Girls of The Cannibals", and "Rhu". Wild and crazy – with a mad mad mix of breaks, grooves, and off-kilter drum action! LP, Vinyl record album

Young-Holt UnlimitedJust A Melody (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
One of a great run of grooves from the legendary team of bassist Eldee Young and drummer Redd Holt – a smoking batch of instrumentals done in the best Chicago soul style of the time! Young and Holt got their start in the early trio of Ramsey Lewis – but here, they've fully expanded to their "Unlimited" mode with larger backings from Sonny Sanders and Willie Henderson – which often feature a tippling soulful piano out front of some larger Chicago soul charts with a mighty nice groove. The album follows their hit Soulful Strut set, and has a very similar feel – with a mix of instrumental readings of soul hits, and a few sweet originals too. Titles include the standout cut "Young and Holtful", a great cover of "Light My Fire", which has been sampled more than once over the years – and the tracks "When I'm Not Around", "I Wish You Love", "Just A Melody", "Gotta Find Me A Lover", and "Give It Away". CD features bonus tracks – "Soulful Samba", "Straight Ahead", "California Montage", and "Horoscope". CD

✨✧ Young-Holt UnlimitedOh Girl ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wicked electric funk from Young Holt Unlimited – and a real departure from the sound of their 60s albums, and a step into a groove that's very 70s-styled overall! The album's heavy on Fender Rhodes – played not just by group member Ken Chaney, but also by a young Bobby Lyle – making an excellent appearance here, and already blowing our mind with his talents! Of course, the hip rhythms from Eldee Young and Redd Holt make the album crackle – but it's the keyboards here that we really love – played with a slightly offbeat vibe that's unlike most mainstream use of the instrument. The groove gets nice and slow and the album's got a very dope lineup that features more than a few nice sample tracks! Titles include "Yes We Can Can", "Rubber Lips", "Oh Girl", "Food Stamps", and the massive "Bumpin On Young Street". LP, Vinyl record album

Young-Holt UnlimitedYoung-Holt Unlimited Plays Super Fly ... LP
Paula, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Fantastic! Young and Holt lay down a monster set of grooves from Curtis Mayfield's Superfly soundtrack (all the good ones – like "Freddie's Dead", "Give Me Your Love", "Pusher Man", and "Superfly"), and they also get into some funky tracks of their own (like "Hey Pancho" and "Mystical Man"), and do a super-dope cover of "People Make the World Go Round". The album's nice and stripped down – perhaps closest to their Oh Girl LP on Atlantic in feel, with loads of cool electric piano by Ken Chaney, laid out over the group's harder funky grooves! One of their rarest in the original, too – and an essential bit of early G-funk! LP, Vinyl record album
