Offered for sale is a rare promo-only compilation LP by Bread, released in 1971.

About this copy:  The album offered for sale is a rare 1971 LP entitled Bread, which was released only as a promotional item.

The cover is VG+, with slight wear.

The record is VG++, and has just a few faint scuffs from the paper inner sleeve.  It appears to have been played only once or twice.

A nice copy of a record that’s surprisingly hard to find.  It’s the only copy we’ve ever seen or had for sale.

Background: Bread wasn’t around all that long, releasing five albums in a span of three years in the early 1970s (and a sixth in 1977.)  During that time, they put 13 songs in the Billboard Top 40.

To encourage airplay, Elektra Records released a promo-only compilation LP to radio stations in 1971 to encourage additional airplay.

Drawing from the band’s first four albums, the album, simply titled Bread, contained the following tracks:

  • Make It With You
  • London Bridge
  • Dismal Day
  • Call on Me
  • Let Your Love Go
  • If
  • Truckin’
  • Mother Freedom
  • It Don’t Matter to Me
  • Baby I’m A Want You
  • Everything I Own
  • Down on MY Knees
  • Been Too Long on the Road
