The Packers were an American soul group formed by tenor saxophonist Charles "Packy" Axton, who was the son of Stax Records part-owner Estelle Axton.[1] Axton was a former member of the Mar-Keys; Leon Haywood (on organ) was among those who played on the group's records. Their first album, Hole in the Wall, reached #7 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart[2] on the strength of the titular single, which reached #5 on the R&B Singles chart[1] and #43 on the Billboard Hot 100.[3]
