Bread Bread 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. The band's well crafted, self-titled 1969 debut featured the band's hit single "It Don't Matter to Me" which didn't officially chart until after the release of the their second album On The Waters and it's No. 1 smash "Make It With You."
