Bread Alone is a 1980 album by entalist Walter "Junie" Morrison. The album was released by Columbia Records and was produced by Walter "Junie" Morrison for . Theracon Productions. It was the first solo album released while simultaneously preparing to depart from c, where he served as keyboardist, co-writer and co-producer. The album features vocal support from Lynn Mabry, formerly of the Brides Of Funkenstein.
Unfortunately, Junie wasn't a big promotional priority for Columbia; 1980's Bread Alone and his next Columbia album, 5 (a 1981 release) both fell through the cracks. Most of the people who bought Bread Alone were the die-hard followers who had acquired the solo albums Junie had recorded for Westbound in the ‘70s. But the fact that Bread Alone wasn't a multi-platinum blockbuster doesn't mean that it lacks artistic merit; in fact, Bread Alone is excellent, albeit excellent in a different way from his Westbound recordings.
This release never made any impact on any of the American Billboard Charts and never spun off any hits. However, for the knowledgeable CD collector who loves late 70's/early 80's funk R&B this release is a true treasure. Junie was a one time member of the OHIO PLAYERS and is a talented musician, songwriter and producer. Every track here is interesting and in many ways ahead of it's time
