Track 9 on the CD is “Somebody” (5.00 minutes). This is another Bob Welch song, and again it is a Bob Weston lead guitar driven rock thing, and once more it is just as good as Tracks 7 and 8. However, the magic is maintained, as it is still in a different way from both of them.
Track 10 is “The Way I Feel” (2.46 minutes). This is not to be confused with the Gordon Lightfoot song of the same name, a super version of which appears on “Fotheringay” [see way above]. No, rather this is a Christine McVie song which is sung by her. It is a much stronger thing than any of the comparable offerings on “Side 1”. It is a most pleasant and jaunty thing, and uniquely on this album, it is the one song that is a harbinger of things to come.
Track 11 is “For Your Love” (3.44 minutes), and yes, it is indeed a version of the Yardbirds rock classic. Here it is brilliantly performed, an excellent rendition, and a real pleasure to listen to. Moreover, unlike the peculiar soul item on “Penguin”, this track does not sound at all out of place.
The CD ends with Track 12, “Why” (4.56 minutes). This is a Christine McVie song, and a most fitting cadence. She sings the verses, and all join in the refrains. The intro is a long, quiet, slide guitar country blues thing, which is very effective indeed. This elides into some “Elton John style” piano, and this gentle but immensely strong song starts. Bob Weston’s lead guitar is once more to the fore throughout, and this is good stuff.
I have to say that a huge amount of credit is due to Bob Weston on this record. His guitar work makes the medocre tracks worth listening to, and imbues the good tracks with star quality. He really came into his own on this album, and it is therefore perhaps a little odd that he was not in the group for the next LP, which turned out to be the last of the “transitional” ones.
