If they are to believed, David Gates and the other members of Bread never intended to become the enduring icons of a subgenre they virtually invented: soft rock. Indeed, scattered throughout this expanded edition of a perennial bestselling catalog album are tuneful evidence of their original intent, as one band mate said, "to make the '60s last a little longer." But it's the familiar, largely Gates-penned and -sung hit singles that remain the band's legacy, from "Make It with You" through the reunited band's last hurrah, "Lost Without Your Love." Though they've become oft-mocked clichés, these are singles informed with a rare, often complex melodic sense, delivered with a deceptively breezy tone by one of pop's purest tenors. Gates and Bread clearly colored artists as diverse as '80s MOR icon Christopher Cross and nouveau singer-songwriter David Mead. --Jerry McCulley

with the younger hip hop crowd. As classic rock
goes this (album) not CD was played before hip hop
was born. This is top shelf stuff from the 1970's.
If you grew up in high school around those years
you will love these tunes. New classification:
mellow classic rock. Try playing a hip hop song
at one of my parties and watch people cover their ears
and exit the room from a bass headache.
David Gates has a great voice for the maudlin music he sings. The song I think of most is "Diary", a poignant song about the fear that all of us as young males had that the girl we love loves someone else. David Gates just rips your heart out with his soft mellow words as he reveals that the writings in the diary of his girlfriend weren't in fact about himself, but another guy. Talk about a gut-wrencher.
But of course the gut-wrenching emotion doesn't stop there. Here is a guy singing about himself and all of us and our dreams for the girls and women we love. "Lost Without Your Love", "Sweet Surrender", "Aubrey", "It Don't Matter to Me", "Make It With You", "Everything I Own", and more...David Gates just refuses to let you be anything other than morose about relationships. But somehow that doesn't matter. It seems like there are times when I just can't get enough of David Gates pouring out his heart, making me feel that he and I are one when it comes to how women can tear our hearts out. But that's okay, because it feels good to hear about it in David's songs.
Okay, I admit that maybe you have to be a little self-destructive in listening to this music. However, it can be a little cathartic too to listen to what you feel out loud. Just don't listen to this music while you are drinking a lot, you might feel too maudlin for your own good.Read more ›
With the moods of Everything I own, Too much love, and Baby I'm a want you, I was lifted up to the ledge of life, and was thrown off when I heard "If" for the first time, what a classic song! When I first heard the song Diary, all I could do was laugh at the first few words, but then after the calming of laughter I was thrown into an intoxicating mood of how sweetly my mind was seduced to the calm melody.
I certainly recommed this Cd to any person and believe it should be in the definate collection of every household. I recommed to buy the cd instead of the 8-track though, not for the skip feature of a cd player, because with this cd it won't be needed, instead buy the cd because of the extra tracks that were added which were not on the orginal releases.

I hesitated because I had already a cd with the best of bread.
This is the same tracks of the original LPs. If you have a multichannel environment you will enjoy it a lot. Read more

Great performance great sound, love the original Quadraphonic mix.Published 16 months ago by par4ken
In the 70s, this was the ultimate make out album. It never failed. I fondly recall mouths full of angora and chronically chapped lips. I owe Bread a tremendous debt of gratitude. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Gary Wagner
