Song of the Day: The Main Ingredient, “Everybody Plays The Fool”

The Main Ingredient are from Harlem, New York and started in 1964 as The Poets. They recorded several records for Lieber and Stoller’s Red Bird label before changing their name to The Insiders and signing with RCA Records. They changed their name (this time permanently) to The Main Ingredient in 1968, and placed several records on the R&B Top 20 before their crossover hit, “Everybody Plays the Fool,” in 1972. The song reached #3 on the Hot 100, #2 on the R&B chart, and #6 in Canada, earning Gold record status.
