On The Waters (Album of the Day)
Monday, August 22, 2016
For Bread's second album, the original trio – David Gates, James Griffin and Rob Royer – added a fourth member, drummer Mike Botts. ON THE WATERS proved to be the group's commercial breakthrough, reaching #12 on the album chart – thanks largely to “Make It With You,” which went to No.1 on the singles chart on this day in 1970. That track isn't entirely representative of the set; on the whole, these dozen songs rock harder and boast more lyrical bite than you would expect given the mellow sound of Bread's sole charttopper. But ON THE WATERS is consistent throughout in its superb singing and attention to melody, which are two reasons that the entire album still “makes it.”
