Young-Holt Unlimited were a soul and jazz instrumental ensemble from Chicago, Illinois.

Drummer Isaac Holt and bassist Eldee Young, formerly members of Ramsey Lewis' jazz trio, formed a new trio called the Young-Holt Trio with pianist Don Walker in 1966. 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". Follow-up releases would not match "Soulful Strut"'s commercial success, and the group disbanded by 1974, with Young and Holt returning to Ramsey Lewis' group by the 1980s.
