CD Reviews

Do You Remember Don McPherson?
David Wayne | Santee, CA United States | 05/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Main Ingredient became much more famous on the national level once Cuba Gooding, Sr. took over as its lead singer. But the group was in fine hands under the direction of its original lead singer and defacto writer and producer, Don McPherson. This compilation features the biggest hits by both McPherson (You've Been My Inspiration, I'm So Proud, Spinning Around) and Gooding (Everybody Plays The Fool, Just Don't Want To Be Lonely). Its 20 tracks are split equally between the two singers, with many of the cuts differing from those on "All-Time Greatest Hits." McPherson recorded 3 albums with the group (L.T.D., Tasteful Soul, Black Seeds) and seemed on the verge of being recognized as one of the emerging talents on the soul music scene, when he fell ill. Listen to the maturedness of his sound on "I'm Leaving This Time" and "You Ain't Got It No Way." Don McPherson passed away of leukemia on Independence Day,1971, just four days shy of his 30th birthday. We don't know where The Main Ingredient would have gone had Don McPherson lived longer. (The Main Ingredient ceased writing their own material after his death.) We do know they enjoyed their greatest popular success with Cuba Gooding at the helm. If you are unfamiliar with the richness of tone and extraordinary range of Don McPherson, give this collection a listen. It also features some of the great moments on record of a fantastic showman, Cuba Gooding, Sr. UPDATE: Donald McPherson is buried at Long Island National Cemetery in New York."
