Image: 1606282 The fifth installment of the One-derful! Collection focuses on Midas,
the gritty soul & funk imprint of this legendary R&B label group.
Midas is preceded by the One-derful!, Mar-V-Lus, M-Pac!, and Halo
compilations and will be followed by Toddlin’ Town. This series marks
the first in-depth study of what was once one of Chicago’s most
prominent African-American run labels.
Midas Records is available in 2XLP and CD formats, and 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.
