Bread - The Best of Bread (1973)

The voice of David Gates is high lighted through much of these songs.  He has a mellow falsetto voice that rings with songs such as "If," "It don't Matter to Me,"  and "Baby I'm a Want You."  However they are also able to turn to a more rock sound with "Mother Freedom" and "Down on my Knees."  this group had many top 100 hits with these two styles.  The band was generally David Gates, Robb Royer and Jimmy Griffin with Mike Botts on drum; although some of the members changed.  They were also relatively short-lived.  David Gates had a successful solo career.  Most of their original albums were recorded between 1070 and 1973 (except one in 1977).  However they released many compendiums albums, this being the first.  This concert includes material included in a rerelease from 2001.
