Bread: Mother Freedom

Being that it is Independence Day here in the US, we celebrate our freedom as an independent nation since the declaration of such on July 4, 1776. I had at least two ancestors and possibly two others that served in the Continental Forces during the Revolutionary War. I was trying to find a song that exhibited freedom and it dawned on me that the best selection for today would be “Mother Freedom” by Bread.

Probably their heaviest song, “Mother Freedom” was the lead track of Bread’s “Baby-I’m-A Want You” album released in January 1972. As a single, “Mother Freedom” predated the release of the LP in 1971 and charted only at #37. From us to you, have a Happy 4th of July.
