I Can't Git A Nice Loaf A' Bread

Album: The Singing Postman (1964)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a gentle rant at the diminishing quality of British bread, which can be interpreted as a metaphor for change not always equating with progress. Written as always by Smethurst himself, he sings and accompanies himself on his acoustic guitar.
  • The song was published as "I Can't Get A Nice Loaf of Bread" in the 1966 Dick James Music anthology Songs of The Singing Postman Allan Smethurst Souvenir Album. >>
