Take me now by David Gates on Grooveshark

Pop Bits:  This title-track single from Gates' fifth solo album (and third after the demise of his group Bread) didn't do much to light up the chart. It ended up being his lowest peaking solo chart single and his last to reach the chart.

ReduxReview:  I'm thinking if Bread had a baby song with the Carpenters and named it after Christopher Cross, it might sound like this. It still sounds a bit rooted in 70s Bread-ery and baked with a little too much saccharine. I can enjoy some sickly sweet pastry every once in a while, but this one just tastes a little bland to me.

ReduxRating:  4/10

Trivia:  His "Take Me Now" album would be Gates' last solo album released until 1994. During his hiatus, Gates focused his attention on his cattle ranch in Northern California. His comeback album "Love is Always Seventeen" didn't grab any attention and it currently remains his last full album of new recordings.
