Interesting facts about Make It With You & Bread –

When group leader David Gates (who wrote the song) returned home to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where his mother was throwing a big reception party to celebrate the return of the young chart-conquering hero, the newspaper, television and radio press turned up, hoping to play up the whole “Local Boy Does Good” PR angle.

In a widely circulated interview, Mrs. Gates proudly told the world just how pleased as punch she was with her son’s recent success. She then also told them – in complete candor – that she just couldn’t understand why he had to call his new hit record, “Naked With You.”
