The Main Ingredient: About
The Main Ingredient is an American soul and R&B group, most popular during the 1970s. The group was founded in Harlem, New York in 1964.
The original members of the group were lead singer Donald McPherson, Luther Simmons Jr., and Tony Silvester, who called their group "The Poets". After recording for a minor local label called, they changed their name to "The Insiders" and got a deal with RCA Records. By 1966, they had changed their name a third and final time, to "The Main Ingredient".

Follow-up hits such as "I'm So Proud" (a cover version of an Impressions song), "Spinning Around (I Must Be Falling in Love)", and "Black Seeds Keep on Growing" did even better on the charts.
