Bread Baby I'm A Want You on Limited Edition 180g LP
Both the MC5 and The Stooges caused considerable grumbling among Elektra's staff, as did polar opposites Bread, this time because of their perceived pop patina. Bread was formed in 1969, when leading producer/arranger and session man David Gates produced Pleasure Faire, a band that included guitarist Robb Royer and songwriter James Griffin. As Bread, the three combined to create a polished, melodic soft-rock style. 1972' Bread Baby I'm A Want You served as the group's fourth full-length effort and proved to be one of their most successful thanks to the handful of hit singles including the title cut (#3), "Everything I Own" (#5), "Diary" (#15) and "Mother Freedom" (#37).
