Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the U.S. picture disc pressing of French Kiss by Bob Welch, issued only as a promotional item.
About this copy: This copy of French Kiss is a 1977 U.S. pressing on the Capitol label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact except for a 2″ (5 cm) split at the top edge.
A nice copy of a scarce (and pretty good) Bob Welch LP.
Background: Released in 1977, French Kiss was the debut solo album by former Fleetwood Mac guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch.
The album reached #12 on the U.S. album chart.
Bob Welch’s debut album saw him cash in on three Top 40 singles, refurbishing the romantic “Sentimental Lady” (originally from Fleetwood Mac’s Bare Trees album) and taking it to number eight on the charts, with radio-tailored efforts like “Ebony Eyes” and “Hot Love, Cold World” following right behind. With not much success coming from Welch’s short stint with his own Paris project, he decided to hire Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and Christine McVie to help him out with his first solo venture. Spotlighting Welch’s vocal powderiness, French Kiss ends up being a bunch of approachable soft pop tunes that display enough eager guitar work to keep them afloat.
