About this release

• A founder member of Bread, David Gates was responsible writing and singing all of their hits. When Bread broke up in
1973 after five hugely successful albums, Gates immediately embarked on a solo career, although he was accompanied by
former band-mates Mike Botts and Larry Knechtel, as well as the cream of LA’s session musicians.
• This slipcased package contains the four solo albums that Gates recorded during the 70s, along with all the lyrics and
annotation by Alan Robinson.
• “First” includes the sumptuous “Suite: Clouds, Rain”, while the title track of “Never Let Her Go” was a hit. After Bread reunited
for a final album in 1976, Gates resumed his solo career with the hit “Goodbye Girl” from Neil Simon’s film of the same name
(recently covered by Rumer), and fourth album “Falling In Love Again” in 1980.
