Background: Released in March, 1971, Manna was the third album by Bread.

The album reached #21 on the U.S. album charts. gave Manna a 4 1/2 star review:

Bread’s third album, Manna, isn’t so much a step forward as it is a consolidation of strengths, as the group sharpens their skills and carves out their own identities. It’s clear that the rift between David Gates and Robb Royer and James Griffin is beginning to take shape, as the album is evenly divided between Gates tunes and Royer/Griffin compositions. …Yet, this is a record that is laid-back and even tempered, which isn’t a bad thing — it results in a fine listen, especially since the group’s songwriting remains at the high standard instituted on that first Bread album.
