Main IngredientAll Time Greatest Hits ... CD
RCA, 1970s. Used ... $2.99
Although this set was recorded early in the history of the Main Ingredient's career, it also compiles tracks from their strongest period – which means that nearly every track's a winner, and all are graced by smooth uptown soul arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux. Includes their seminal AM radio hit "Everybody Plays The Fool", plus "Black Seeds Keep On Growing", "Spinning Around (I Must Be Falling In Love)", "Make It With You", "I'm So Proud", "I'm Better Off Without You", "You've Got To Take It (If You Want It)", "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)", "You've Been My Inspiration", and "No Tears (In The End)". CD
(Out of print, BMG Direct pressing.)

Main IngredientReady For Love ... CD
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy ... $10.99
A killer set from a group that never lets us down – stepping out here in a sound that's more modern, more mature than their hit work of the 70s – yet still filled with all the sublime harmony soul we'd expect from the trio of Tony Silvester, Cuba Gooding, and Luther Simmons! Wade Marcus did all the arrangements – really showing his strengths on the album's mellow cuts, which are our favorites here – although the upbeat cuts still also step out in that best 80s groove mode that RCA was exploring at the time – made even better by the strong vocals of the trio! The record's got a classic sound that goes way past its cover image – and titles include "Think Positive", "What Can A Miracle Do", "With You", "Makes No Difference To Me", and "Ready For Love". CD

✨✧ Main IngredientSpinning Around – The Singles 1967 to 1975 ... CD
RCA/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Some of the greatest work ever by The Main Ingredient – a selection of their singles for RCA records from the late 60s and early 70s – but one that goes way past just the hits, in order to fully trace the evolution of their heavenly vocal style! The trio started out as an already-great harmony act in the late 60s – a group who were even sweeter and more soaring than some of their contemporaries – making them perfectly placed to move into some of the more righteous harmony modes of the 70s – including some surprising turns towards more righteous, political material. The 22 track package is the greatest we've ever seen on the group – 15 pages of deeply detailed notes, in true Ace/Kent mode – plus singles that include three by The Insiders, "I'm Better Off Without You", "If You Had A Heart", and "I'm Just A Man" – as well as Main Ingredient singles that include "Black Seeds Keep On Growing", "California My Way", "Magic Shoes", "Everybody Plays The Fool", "You've Got To Take It If You Want It", "Girl Blue", "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend", "I Was Born To Lose You", "Brotherly Love", "You've Been My Inspiration", "I'm So Proud", "Spinning Around", "I'm Leaving This Time", "Rolling Down A Mountainside", "The Gold Old Days", and "Shame On The World".

✨✧ Main IngredientBitter Sweet ... LP
RCA, 1972. Sealed Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Main Ingredient's great early albums, and the one that includes the big hit "Everybody Plays the Fool", one of the all-time great AM radio soul classics! Nice east coast group soul throughout, with that slightly heavy production style the band was hitting at the time. Packaged in a nice uni-pack cover, and with the tracks "No Tears", "Fly Baby Fly", "You've Got to Take It", and "I Can't See Me Without You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed, with hype sticker. Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Main IngredientI Only Have Eyes For You ... CD
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great later album from the Main Ingredient – professional, polished, and filled with wonderful harmony vocals! Maestro Patrick Adams arranged and produced the set – and he gives the record a really wonderful sound that's light years from his indie club work of the early 70s – a tight approach to vocal group soul that still lets the harmonies shine wonderfully, but which also takes them into more mature, sophisticated territory. Cuba Gooding's returned to the group, and his beautiful vocals are a very welcome (re)addition to their sound – and the album's got some key midtempo groovers that stand with some of the group's best work. Titles include "Party People", "Only", "Evening of Love", "Just Once", "All Because of You", "Rediscover Me", and a great modern soul remake of "I Only Have Eyes For You". CD

Eddie F & The UntouchablesLet's Get It On ... LP
Motown, 1994. Near Mint- 2LP ... $2.99
Not actually a group, but a compilation of acts, mostly contemporary soul with some hip hop, produced by Eddie F, who played a role in those days that Puffy Combs would in a few years time. Lots of forgettable radio fodder here, but there is the early Mykill Myers track "Hardcore 4 Eva", Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "In The House" off the Main Ingredient and a posse cut, "Let's Get It On", with Heavy D, Grand Puba, Spunk Bigga plus Biggie & 2Pac when they were still getting along. LP, Vinyl record album
(In a stickered gatefold sleeve.)

✨✧ Robbie Hill's Family AffairGotta Get Back – The Unreleased LA Sessions ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A five-track EP, but a set that also packs the power of most full albums of soul we've heard from the 70s – thanks to a deep level of quality throughout! The material was originally recorded for RCA in 1975, at a time when Robbie Hill's Family Affair were the backing group for The Main Ingredient – and had not only close ties to the group musically, but also got their help in supporting this recording! Vocals are by members of the Hill family, but have this great mix of deep tones and soaring highs that really recalls the more famous trio – but served up here with wickedly funky backings that have got to be some of the heaviest sounds recorded for RCA at the time! The whole thing feels like a sweet stash of rare indie soul records from the time – the best bits you might find on a Numero label collection, for example – and titles include "Peace Of Mind", "Don't Give Up", "Gotta Get Back", "I'll See You", and "Love Is Waiting For You".

✨✧ VariousAshford & Simpson Songbook ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ashford & Simpson recorded plenty of great work on their own, but they were also a tremendous pair of songwriters – and had a way of penning can't-miss work that sounded great in just about anyone's hands! This collection is great testament to that fact – as it starts with gems the duo first wrote back in their early Motown days, then quickly moves up to their late 70s fame, and the way they had a major impact on the dancefloor. The tracks here are often quite familiar, but the actual recordings are sometimes obscure – lesser-known takes on some of Ashford & Simpson's best numbers, laid out back to back as proof of their genius talent for a groovy soul tune. Titles include "Top Of The Stairs" by Collins & Collins, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, "Rough Times" by Angela Bofill, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "Bourgie Bourgie" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Have You Ever Tried It" by The Main Ingredient, "I Wouldn't Change The Man He Is" by Blinky, "It's In There" by Jennifer Holiday, "Clouds" by Chaka Khan, "Over & Over" by Sylvester, "Hit & Run Lover" by The Dynamic Superiors, "The Boss (ext club)" by Diana Ross, "Is It Still Good To Ya" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, and "Keep Away Girls" by Stephanie Mills.
