Lost Without Your Love

Lost Without Your Love” was written by David Gates, and originally recorded by his group Bread. It is the title track of Bread’s 1976 album, and became their final Top 10 hit.

The single lasted 16 weeks on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, longer than any of their other songs except their greatest hit, “Make It With You. It peaked at #9. It was a “comeback” hit after an absence from the chart of three and a half years, during which time Gates began his solo career.

My instrumental arrangement has an late 50’s – early 60’s vibe.

It Don’t Matter to Me

It Don’t Matter to Me” was written by David Gates and originally recorded by his group Bread. The song was their second Top 10 hit in the U.S., reaching #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.

It also was included on the group’s 1969 debut LP. The 1970 single release was a new version, different from the 1969 album cut.

My instrumental version is very straightforward.
