The third installment of the One-derful! Collection focuses on M-Pac!, the bluesξand hard soul imprint of this legendary R&B label group. M-Pac! is precededξby the One-derful! and Mar-V-Lus compilations and will be followed byξreleases of the Halo, Midas, and ToddlinŠ—È Town sub-labels.

The One-Derful! series marksξthe first in-depth study of what was once one of ChicagoŠ—Ès most prominentξAfrican-American run labels. Within the groovesξof these 24 tracks lie superb group harmonies from The Ringleaders andξThe Accents, gritty hard soul leads from Willie Parker and Stacy Johnson,ξand songs from one of ChicagoŠ—Ès most under-appreciated soul shouters inξHarold Burrage, plus 10 tracks that were never issued!ξ

Central to M-Pac! is the Leaner family; by 1962 when brothers George andξErnie Leaner added M-Pac! as a sub-label to their One-derful! label, theyξwere revered figures on ChicagoŠ—Ès Record Row and beyond. They distributedξmaterial from labels like Motown and Stax and they attracted top talent. ItξwasnŠ—Èt uncommon for a WVON DJ to help the Leaners sign their newestξdiscovery, or for their singers, musicians, songwriters, or producers to haveξChess or Motown on their resumes. The Leaner family were among theξmost important black businessmen of musicŠ—Ès golden era, yet much of theirξhistory has only been superficially documented until now.ξ

Between 1962 and 1971, the One-derful! family of labels released 180+ξ45s of stunning soul, funk, and gospel. Over two years of painstakingξresearch and work, including countless hours spent cataloging, transferring,ξand mastering 250 of the labelŠ—Ès tapes, has contributed to an amazinglyξextensive reissue collection. In addition, some of the worldŠ—Ès leading expertsξhave contributed liner notes and interviewed virtually every known survivingξartist, producer, and otherwise involved party.ξ
