5.0 out of 5 stars Peerless Melodic Pop Pieces., 12 Aug 2011

This review is from: The Very Best of Bread (Audio CD)
Bread and melodic pop music - they go together in the public mind. Whether talking about the beautiful "Make It With You" the evocative "Guitar Man" or the highly personal "Everything I own" (which David Gates wrote after the death of his father), these are towering examples of the art of the 1970s melodic pop song writer - the writer in question being, Mr Gates.

Via messrs Griffin and Royer, the band also had a harder edge - but that's not in evidence on this compilation, or in their hit cannon. In this respect Bread's internal tensions somewhat mirror those within the Jazz/Rock group Chicago, whose harder edged efforts were (in terms of commercial success) completely hidden from view by THEIR melodic hits writer Pete Cetera.

Anyway, if you flip over most of Bread's singles you will find a Griffin and Royer composition, usually a far more up-tempo outing than the A side - few of those made it onto this album. My favourite G&R was "Why do you Keep Me Waiting" - the flipside of "Make It With You" - and yet, and yet, it was always David Gates' songs that predominated - "Never Let Her Go", "if" - the list goes on, and they're all on this compilation. If you want to hear the other side of Bread you'll have to buy a different CD, this is almost wall to wall smooth pop ("Let Your Love Go" and "Took the Last Train" have a bit of a groove on but still in a fairly gentle way).

A1 1970s/1980s melodic pop music at its best - cannot be faulted within its narrow confines.
