Bread - The Best of Bread
My two favorite Bread tunes are "If" and "Baby I'm A Want You," and they're both included on this compilation. Side A of this album is filled with Bread's softer material, and they actually rock it out a little on the B-Side. Most notably, Bread churns out an honest-to-goodness Skynyrd-esque rocker in "Mother Freedom," which proves that they aren't just wussies who are afraid to really rock it out (a common perception of soft rock that I have been trying to stifle for years). Although Bread can crank out the rock, I prefer their more sensitive material. I just can't get enough of that wispy 1970's sound. Just go and listen to "If" and try to tell me it isn't awesome.
