Clint Houston in down beat magazine January 25th 1979 issue credits this man with bringing him back in to bass after almost quitting. He states " I got to see Eldee young for the 1st time and that inspired me. I don't know what it was about the way he played just his personality whatever it was he made that bass speak in such a way that it made me go back to the instrument" Houston sighted young is "the classic example of a bassist with no left hand technique who plays the shit out of his instrument"
