Description

Midas Records Collection / Various on LP

Limited double vinyl LP pressing including digital download. 2016 release. The fifth installment of the One-derful! Collection focuses on Midas, the gritty soul and funk imprint of this legendary R&B label group. Within the grooves of these 25 tracks are generous helpings of funk, southern soul, and storming group vocals. As the shortest lived label in the One-derful! Stable, Midas also provides an opportunity to dig deep into One-derful!'s vast tape vaults. Among the 11 never issued tracks are gems from Andre Williams, Benny Sharp & The Sharpies, Bobby Mack, and McKinley Mitchell. Central to Midas is the Leaner family. In the early 1960s when brothers George and Ernie Leaner added the Halo sub-label to their One-derful! #label, they were revered figures on Chicago's Record Row and beyond. They distributed material from labels like Motown and Stax and they attracted top talent. It wasn't uncommon for a WVON DJ to help the Leaners sign their newest discovery, or for their singers, musicians, songwriters, or producers to have Chess or Motown on their resumes.
