"Everybody Plays The Fool" was the title of a popular song written by J.R. Bailey, Rudy Clark and Ken Williams. The first recording of the song to reach the Top 40 was by the R&B/soul group The Main Ingredient, a trio consisting at the time of Cuba Gooding, Sr., Tony Silvester and Luther Simmons, Jr. Their version of "Everybody Plays The Fool" rose to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the fall of 1972 and was certified gold by the RIAA. This version also peaked at #2 on the Billboard R&B chart and at #25 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. It was the group's highest charting hit single. Silvester left the group in 1975 and was replaced by Carl Tompkins, and Gooding departed for a solo career on Motown Records in 1977, which produced two albums. Simmons, meanwhile, left the music industry to work as a stockbroker. Gooding, Silvester and Simmons reunited as The Main Ingredient in 1979, and recorded two more albums, 1980's "Ready For Love" and 1981's "I Only Have Eyes For You". The trio reunited for a second time in 1986, but their Zakia single "Do Me Right" flopped, and Simmons returned to his day job. He was replaced by Jerome Jackson on the 1989 Polydor album "I Just Wanna Love You". In the wake of Aaron Neville's Top Ten revival of "Everybody Plays The Fool", Gooding resumed his solo career and issued his third album in 1993. Silvester and Simmons re-formed the Main Ingredient in 1999 with new lead singer Carlton Blount, and this line-up recorded "Pure Magic" in 2001. Gooding's son is the actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. Silvester died after a six-year struggle with multiple myeloma on November 27, 2006, at the age of 65. This channel is dedicated to all the great 'old school' R&B music I grew up with, the stuff that originally made me tap my feet and want to be a DJ. Funk, soul, disco, R&B, dance, hip-hop, pop . . . 60s, 70s, 80s . . . whatever you call it, it's all 'Old School' and it's all here!
