Secret Stash have been working with the Leaner family for over two years, digging and documenting their family's One-Derful label dynasty. The result of this work will be six compilations that comprise all manner of funk soul treats and unreleased gems from the label's many off-shoots. The party starts right here with two never-before-released tracks from Northern Soul faves The Ringleaders. With only one official release (and a super-rare acetate surfacing in the 80s) these recordings - that span uptempo stomps and smouldering smooches - will delight all soul fans who've been craving more from the Michigan act for many years. Delivered with the original M-Pac stamp of approval, this is as close to a time machine as we're likely to get.
