Ramsey Lewis Trio - Voice Your Choice

Ramsey Lewis was born May 27, 1935 in Chicago, Illinois. The two other members of the "Trio" were Eldee Young and Isaac "Red" Holt, who later left Ramsey Lewis and formed Young-Holt Unlimited and had hits of their own.

Surprisingly to some, Ramsey Lewis had more than a couple of hits. In fact, he appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart a total of 20 times between 1964 and 1976.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents the Ramsey Lewis Trio. Cast you vote for either The "In" Crowd or Wade In The Water. I'll play the winner on next week' s show.
