Product Description:

With two Stevie Wonder covers and a Curtis Mayfield cover taking up a third of the ten tracks on this 2004 reissue of BMG's 2000 Greatest Hits compilation, one could hardly call this anything labeled definitive or greatest hits. Spanning the Main Ingredient's most prolific years during the early '70s, their most well-known songs are here, including "Everybody Plays the Fool," "Just Don't Want to Be Lonely," and the haunting "The Girl I Left Behind." The group's devoted fans will most likely already own most of this material, but listeners just discovering the group's soulful crooning will find this a reasonable and economically sensible place to start. ~ Rob Theakston

Smooth Harmonies Music Lover: from Zanadu -- February, 10, 2008

Cuba Gooding Jr. might have, "Showed Us The Money" in the movie Jerry McGuire, but his dad is giving us the most for our bucks! This compilation contains nearly every hit that The Main Ingredient recorded. Of course there is the classic, "Everybody Plays The Fool", but there are other must haves like, "Spinning Around" and a remake of the classic, "Make It With You". This is a cd that you can put in your player and not have to skip tracks. If you love 70's soul music, this is one for the collection.

The Main Ingredient Greatest Hits Music Lover: from Gainesville, FL US -- September, 21, 2007

Soulful harmony of a great group from the 70's still sounds just as good as they did back then. All ballads in a compillation of smooth Soul you can really appreciate.
