Essential JB's album produced by James Brown and full to the brim with funk! 'Breakin Bread', 'Rockin Watergate', 'Little Boy Black' and loads more classic funk.
The third and final album by the Edinburgh-based duo of David McNiven and Angie Rew was barely released in 1971, but has gone on to become one of the most treasured 'acid folk' albums of all time. Comprising the epic title track and four unforgettable stand-alone songs, Amaryllis features outstanding support from musicians including Danny Thompson and Terry Cox of Pentangle, and is an essential purchase for all fans of psychedelic singer-songwriting.
This is the second album of the British psychedelic folk band Bread Love and Dreams. It's full of really nice melodic progressive folk songs with beautiful acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, drums and some piano, organ, moothie, flute, African and other percussion and gorgeous female and male vocal and vocal harmonies. Released on Decca (SKL5048) in 1970.
Bread and Roses was a 1976 album by Judy Collins that attempted to merge the singer's political convictions with the commercial success of the previous year's Judith. Political statements like the title song, originally a poem by James Oppenheim commonly associated with a 1912 garment workers strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts, were balanced with such pop compositions as Elton John's "Come Down in Time", but the album failed to achieve the commercial success of Judith.
Contained within are all of their hits, plus some delectable gems unknown to those familiar with Bread only from the radio. This set begins with "Make It With You," which hit the number one spot in 1970, and ends with the group's last Top Ten hit, "Lost Without Your Love" from their reunion album of 1977. Other Top Ten hits include "If," "Baby I'm-a Want You," "Everything I Own," "It Don't Matter to Me," and "Guitar Man," which reached number 11. The popular songs have held up well, but perhaps the most interesting cuts here are the lesser-known ones, like "Dismal Day," "Down on My Knees," and "The Last Time." David Gates and company had quite a run, and this anthology shows why.
