Euphrates River is the sixth album by American singing group The Main Ingredient. Released in 1974, the album charted at number 8 on the Soul albums chart in the U.S. In addition to the standard 2 channel stereo version, the album was also released in a 4 channel quadraphonic version in 1976. The quad LP was encoded using the Compatible Discrete 4 system. This album was reissued in the UK on the Super Audio CD format in 2016 by Dutton Vocalion. The release contains both the stereo and quad mixes.

While nothing soared as high as “Everybody Plays a Fool” from the Bitter Sweet LP, Euphrates River is tighter and has more zap than the previous year’s beautiful but hitless Afrodisiac. They nailed Seals & Croft’s “Summer Breeze” — the New Yorkers almost surpassed the Isley Brothers’ soulful version. Cuba Gooding sings the upbeat and funky “California My Way” from the heart (the soul singer moved his family to L.A. — the only Main Ingredient to do so). The trio gives Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry About a Thing” all they can muster; this is an excellent rendition that should have done better on the charts. Their version of “Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely” helped sell this LP; it was previously done by Blue Magic and Ronnie Dyson, but the Main Ingredient’s version reigns supreme. Rolling, midtempo beaters make up the bulk of the tunes with “Euphrates” and “Happiness Is Just Around the Bend” as prime examples.
