CD Reviews

This is the best "best of" CD production.

"David Gates and Bread have always been my favorite artist and group. Gates' songs/music, in particular, have always helped me through both high and low times in my life as no other singer/songwriter has. (See my reviews of Bread's albums too.) This is the best comprehensive collection of songs that I believe gives an accurate representation of the breadth and scope of any group's musical "career." This 40 song collection not only includes Bread's hits and many lesser hits that I believe deserve to be on this 2-set collection, but a nice sampling from David Gates' five solo albums. I am perplexed as to why Mr. Gates' solo tunes never received the radio play and recognition he and his songs deserved. Many "best of" compilations simply "skim the surface" of a group's or artist's songs. This ensemble gives a true representation of the spectrum and variety of music that was produced by this group, including the extensive 29 page booklet that accompanies the 2 CDs- very informative! David Gates' production abilites have always been recognized and much appreciated by me and Rhino has released an outstanding collection again. Even if you have all Bread's albums, all David Gates' solo albums, James Griffin's solo albums, and all those released on CD as I do, this is still one additional set that stands alone and is worth adding to your Bread collection."

"This double-CD collection is definitely worth the price (your valuable "bread," that is). Production quality is superb, magnificent. This is one of those collections where you just have to say, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" Every Bread or David Gates song your heart could conceivably desire is on here, my audiophile friend, fan and lover, and everything sounds Top-Drawer! Clear, Crystal, Beautiful, Brilliant, Warm, Excellent. I'm very glad I bought this labor-of-love anthology, and I think You, Gentle Listener, will be as well. Nothing but Extremely High Kudos for "Bread Retrospective." Plus this compilation includes a very-well crafted 29-page booklet of great pictures, Bread lore, history and stories. Enjoy immensely."
Great collection of Bread songs from various l.p.'s!

"This two cd set from Warner Bros./Rhino takes me back almost 30 years when I was 18 years old. The songs are timeless and Bread put out some of the best soft rock there ever was. The songs on this compilation are from the different Bread L.P.'s plus some extra cuts from David Gate's solo L.P.'s as well (James Griffin has a few solo songs on this disc also). No matter where you lived you were almost certain to hear a Bread song on radio back in the seventies. David Gates still performs and I was lucky enough to hear him several years ago. He still sounds as good as he did years back and in my opinion is one of the best songwriters (not incl. Lennon & McCartney) I've ever heard. I would highly recommend this compilation for those who appreciate the great sounds Bread gave us."
