They met with modest success, including the minor hit, "Wack-Wack", which charted at number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.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."
