My Very First Web Page about Bread
Presented here is a copy of my initial Bread web effort from 1997 – an early experiment in producing web pages from scratch (shunning marketed HTML editors which I still find no need for) and quite possibly my first page with actual tables. As I figured this page could be more useful than just being a web page-making exercise, it expanded into a multi-page site with additional discographical information, photos of a Bread concert in Texas, guest pages, and opiniation of mine for whatever that might be worth – and with always the obligatory acknowledgements of other Bread sites. Once started, I felt obligated to keep it up. Occasionally added have been the necessary corrections of errors for which I am certainly grateful when finally given the tune-up. (Note the stupid error below for one of the Pleasure Fair titles.)
Bread and its members and associates remain among my favorite musicians and writers of all time. (How I got into their work in the first place just don't matter; this site isn't about me anyway.) What these individuals have been up to – on their own or in a group – is a fascinating part of American musical and literary history that is certainly worth exploring. I just bet that the best is yet to be revealed.
We need more Bread on the web, a lot of the rare stuff on the air, and an end to the stupid nonsense that Bread was just a soft-rock group.
