BARBARA ACKLIN - AM I THE SAME GIRL?


With the massive amount of great singles that were released in the period I generally cover, sometimes old favorites get temporarily forgotten about while I feature new additions to the collection. This is a perfect example of one of those!

Oddly enough, the same backing track with a piano tinkling out the melody line was re-released as "The Soulful Strut" and credited to Young Holt Unlimited. Stranger yet, Young Holt Unlimited had nothing to do with the track, as it was cut by the band who later became known as Pieces Of Peace (they played on many great Brunswick records sessions as well as backing Syl Johnson). Soulful Strut became (a well deserved hit) while oddly, this track with vocals didn't make much of an impact chart wise.

from 1969...

I have 'Soulful Strut' on my Stax compilation, but this is superb.

The vocal version was a moderate hit in Australia in the 1960s.
