According to Mick Fleetwood, Bob Welch saved Fleetwood Mac, which is ironic as Bob left the Mac in 1974. Between '75 and '79, they sold 18 million records in the US alone, but it is true that when he joined they were falling apart at the seams. Peter Green had "retired" and their guitarist Jeremy Spencer thought that his time would be better spent with religious sect "The Children Of God" .
So Bob Welch took lead guitar and vocal duties and recorded 5 LPs with the band before he too decided to "go his own way".
Church is from his second solo album, Three Hearts.
Although he never achieved the commercial success of Fleetwood Mac he made some great records that are well worth checking out.
