"Three Hearts" has long been one of my favorite Pop-Rock albums, and likely the best (original) solo album in Welch's catalog. This CD reissue is welcome not only for it's bonus tracks, but also it's remastered sound, which is a significant improvement over the Demon (UK) disc of a few years back. Though not a chart topper in the traditional Fleetwood Mac sense, "Three Hearts" was still a rock-solid recording, start to finish, and produced two significant hits in "Precious Love" and "Church."
Welch's first solo album on Capitol ("French Kiss") is also impressive, but the radio-ready formula he devised didn't come full-circle until "Three Hearts." As usual, Welch wrote all of the material (with the exception of the Beatles and Fleetwoods cover tunes), and his throaty Gibson dominates most of the recording. This album inaugurated what would become Welch's touring band, and "Three Hearts" is stronger for their inclusion.
"Three Hearts" isn't quite a contemporary album, though it is a heady mix of Pop hooks, Rock know-how, and Disco flash. Drummer Alvin Taylor really kicks these tunes into high gear with his big bass drum and beat-perfect snare work. Lyrically, this isn't a ponderous album by any stretch of the imagination. Lots of universal sentiments on love and relationships, and a few oddments that evoke Welch's tenure with the Big Mac. The previously shelved "(Good Things Come)...Don't Wait Too Long" really IS a Fleetwood Mac track, re-done by Welch and his new band. (The original was slated for "Mystery To Me," but got bumped for the remake of "For Your Love.")
I have my own favorite tracks, but they honestly don't bear mentioning in such fine company.

Bob Welch was born into a show business family, and learned to play guitar at an early age. He went over the pond in 1967 to Paris and then moved to England in 1970 and joined the blues-rock band Fleetwood Mac. He did 4 albums with the Mac, for me "Bare Trees" was his best album with the Mac. After '74 he formed the group Paris, their first album contained the rockin' classic "Black Book" this band had ex-Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick and drummer Thom Mooney from The Nazz, they released "Big Towne 2061" next but it fell on deaf ears. In early 1977 Bob decided to go solo, he released the platnium selling "French Kiss" #12. He used Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks on several tracks. 3 hit singles later, Bob went back into the studio and released this great album "Three Hearts" #20, it was the height of disco era, but I find this Bob's finest moment. This album is so underrated. Here are some of the highlights:

"3 Hearts"- "3 hearts in a tango". Strong rock song, nice strings, with solid guitar rock by Todd Sharp.

"Oh Jenny"- Melodic rock, "Oh Jenny won't you try to understand".

"I Saw Her Standing There"- The Lennon and McCartney classic, done here in more of a funky piece, like the way Bob put his own spin on this song, solid guitar.

"Here Comes The Night"- It just sounds so effortless, Bob really makes this song shine with it's pop sheen, his guitar sounds so good.

"China"- "I'm a prisoner of those oriental eyes". Another solid pop-rocker, Todd's guitar rocks the East!

"The Ghost Of Flight 401"- A true story, happened during the early 70's, Fleetwood played drums on this track.
