This LP was my introduction to FM when I was 14. Like it's predecessor "Penguin" it featured cartoon-like artwork on the cover so it had a visual appeal to me as a youngster despite having no idea what the music was like. I had a paper route & luckily for me one of my customers was a woman employed by Warner Bros. with a closet full of promo LPs she wanted to get rid of, this version being one of the handful I left her apartment with. Side one held me captive throughout that year into the next summer. Besides the most well known song "Hypnotized" I had a constant soundtrack in my head featuring "Believe Me", "Just Crazy Love" (still an all time FM fave), "Keep On Going" & "Emerald Eyes". I thought "Forever" was dumb, not knowing it was a skiffle track with my limited musical vocabulary at that time. Side two left me cold until later in my teens when harder rock held more appeal for me & those songs eventually became equally important to me. Suffice it to say, the FM love affair solidified with my all time fave "Heroes Are Hard To Find" & most all albums back to "Then Play On" & up to "Tusk" before FM just became far too poppy for my changing tastes.
Unlike many FM fans, the Bob Welch era remains most favored to my ears with "Rumours" being an unsurprising exception, that being one of THE all-time great records EVER. Shame on FM that he was not included for induction into the R&R Hall of Fame.
There is a comment concerning "Good Things (Come to Those who Wait)" on the main release page for "Mystery..." that I want to address: This promo LP (stupidly long gone, had I known then blah, blah) included a white type on black lyric sheet insert with the lyrics for "Good Things" on it, not the lyrics for "For Your Love" which was actually on the LP. The song was eventually released on Bob Welch's 2nd solo album "3 Hearts" with the (re)title "Don't Wait Too Long". At that time I still had this promo LP with the lyric sheet & the lyrics were an exact match, with the chorus hook line being "good things come to those who wait, but don't wait too long". So any fan interested in hearing that song ought to seek out "3 Hearts".
