The group was formed by Isaac Hayes and David Porter in order to fill the gap that Sam & Dave had left after parting from the Atlantic record label. They scored 15 R&B hits between 1968 and 1978. 'J. Blackfoot' is a nickname Colbert picked up during his early years, due to his habit of walking barefoot on the tarred sidewalks of Memphis during the hot summers.
