Rhino's 2001 collection, The Best of Bread, is the definitive single-disc collection of Bread's hits, spanning 20 tracks and all of the group's hits, including lesser-known hits that didn't reach the heights of "Make It with You," "Everything I Own," "If," or "Baby I'm a Want You." Though this isn't as comprehensive as Rhino's double-disc set -- which means it doesn't contain the David Gates solo cuts that the first one does -- it still provides most casual listeners with all the Bread they'd need, in a highly listenable fashion, too.

The Best Of Bread based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
"Make It With You" started me hooked onto Bread's sound during my teen years. David Gates was the pioneer of saccharine, soothing yet sentimental songs that spawned later days followers like Air Supply, although the latter is more inclined towards love ballads. However, Bread were the more accomplished musicians in my opinion. I have owned different discs of Bread but this version from Rhino is the best in audio reproduction. For fans of Bread and those who wish to find out what 70s' music is all about, this should be the definitive disc to own!
