Format: LP Album
Pop-Rock Classic Epitomizes Timeless Early 1970s AM Radio Sounds and Includes Four Top 40 Hits: Bread's Baby I'm-A Want You Features Finessed Playing, Sturdy Melodies, Passionate Harmonies Mastered from the Original Master Tapes and Strictly Limited to 3,000 Copies: Mobile Fidelity Numbered-Edition 180g Vinyl LP Plays with Engrossing Warmth, Nuance, Smoothness, and Balance Smash 1972 Album Features Four Top 40 Hits: 'Baby I'm-A Want You,' 'Everything I Own,' 'Diary,' and 'Mother Freedom' Any way you slice it, the template for the mellow sounds that dominated AM radio in the 1970s starts with Baby I'm-A Want You. Bread's finest effort stands the test of time by way of the band's sturdy melodies, the former studio professionals' finessed playing, and some of the choicest harmonizing to ever come out of Los Angeles. Anchored by four Top 40 hits, the pop-rock classic radiates with golden-hued textures and pitch-perfect tones - particularly on this long-overdue analog reissue. Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 copies, Mobile Fidelity's numbered-edition 180g vinyl LP delivers engrossing levels of warmth, nuance, and smoothness that elevate Bread's 1972 release to audiophile heights. For the first time, the quartet's polished musicianship and vocal blends come across as if you're hearing them happen live in the studio. Previously muddled elements are clarified, and the band's choruses and treble-ringing notes opened up so they can fully blossom, pulling you closer to the combination of serious emotion and comically infused romance. In particular, leader David Gates' quasi-falsetto and other vocal touches get their just due.
