DAVID GATES - THE EARLY YEARS 1962-1967

Upcoming release from your favorite label, Rare Rockin' Records!


 
 
The next installment of the highly acclaimed Songwriter Masters Series higlights the written accomplishments of David Gates. As you may know, Mr. Gates was active in the music business long before Bread - as a recording artist, yes....but also a master craftsman of fine pop, doo wop, rock n' roll, girl group, and soul tunes. This compilation, lovingly compiled and annotated, presents 32 of Gates' finest written songs spanning the years 1962-1967. It includes songs you may know (including the smash Murmaids hit "Popsicles & Icicles"), and some you may not (including killers by The Crickets, Margaret Mandolph, and Shelley Fabares). In addition, Gates' original own demo of "You'll Be Needin' Me Baby" is included as a bonus treat - as if 32 amazing songs weren't enough!!!
