"This song is absolutely beautiful. The story is very moving and is woven together so well. But then I expect no less from David Gates, one of the best songwriters of his generation but rarely mentioned in discussions about such things." writes a fan on the internet.
Bread was a rock band from Los Angeles, California. They placed 13 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1970 and 1977 and were a primary example of what later was labeled "soft rock", releasing a string of well-crafted, melodic soft rock singles.
Baby I'm-A Want You is the fourth album by Bread, released in 1972. Its singles included the title cut (which reached #3 on the Billboard Top 100), "Everything I Own",(#5), "Mother Freedom" (#37),and "Diary" (#15). This was the first Bread album to feature keyboards player Larry Knechtel.
