One-derful! was a record label group in Chicago that was part of the city's famous Record Row and stood as one of the city's most prominent African-American-run music business forces. Their sub-label, Mar-V-Lus, led the charge for scads of R&B gold, floor-filling dance grooves, heartsick ballads, and teeny-bopper pop, releasing essential cuts from Johnny Sayles, Josephine Taylor, The Blenders, Alvin Cash, Miss Madeline & The Young Folk, and honey-voiced teen R&B group The Du-Ettes.

Within the grooves of these 25 tracks lie classic dance numbers from Alvin Cash, pure harmonies from The Du-Ettes, soulful funk from Josephine Taylor, aching deep ballads from Johnny Sayles, teen laments from Miss Madeline & The Young Folk, and Detroit influenced uptempo floor fillers from Joseph Moore, The Blenders, and The Ulti-mations, plus 10 tracks that were never issued!
