While nothing soared as high as "Everybody Plays a Fool" from the Bitter Sweet LP, Euphrates River is tighter and has more zap than the previous year's beautiful but hitless Afrodisiac. They nailed Seals & Croft's "Summer Breeze" -- the New Yorkers almost surpassed the Isley Brothers' soulful version. Cuba Gooding sings the upbeat and funky "California My Way" from the heart (the soul singer moved his family to L.A. -- the only Main Ingredient to do so). The trio gives Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry About a Thing" all they can muster; this is an excellent rendition that should have done better on the charts. Their version of "Just Don't Want to Be Lonely" helped sell this LP; it was previously done by Blue Magic and Ronnie Dyson, but the Main Ingredient's version reigns supreme. Rolling, midtempo beaters make up the bulk of the tunes with "Euphrates" and "Happiness Is Just Around the Bend" as prime examples. ~ Andrew Hamilton
