Album Review

The Australian comp Essentials gathers 24 of David Gates' best-known songs with and without Bread, including "Make It With You," "If," "Baby I'm-A Want You," "Guitar Man," "Never Let Her Go," and "Goodbye Girl." Falling somewhere in between Rhino's Retrospective and The Best of Bread compilations in its depth and breadth, Essentials is a fine collection of Gates' material for Bread fans and novices alike.
