Default Good Things (Come To Those Who Wait)

"Another Welch song, "Good Things (Come To Those Who Wait)" was dropped at the last minute (but not before thousands of record sleeves and lyric inserts had been printed) in favor of a song suggested by Weston, the Yardbirds' "For Your Love", which was also released as a single. "Good Things (Come To Those Who Wait)" was never released as a Fleetwood Mac track, but the song resurfaced (albiet in much-altered form) as "Don't Wait Too Long" for Welch's 1979 album Three Hearts .

Original versions of Mystery To Me were released with sleeves showing "Good Things" and the lyric inserts also include that song. Later editions correctly list "For Your Love", but the lyric inserts are deleted altogether." - http://www.fleetwoodmac.net/fwm/inde...d=40&Itemid=53

I find it strange that Good Things was never released as a FM track, even on something such as a box set. Has this song ever been "unofficially" released - i.e. a studio version floating around through fans? I certainly haven't seen it (or heard it) on a bootleg fan compilation - but what do I know?

I don't know of any, and I'd probably know. Of course, I didn't know about the FG/BT era shows or the Buckingham Nicks bootlegs, either.

Wow...how observant am I? I've been playing the LP all these years and never noticed "Good Things" was listed but is not on the record.

I actually have one of those early issued Mystery To Me albums. I find it very peculiar that the song has never emerged officially or, more suprising --unofficially. Too bad it didn't make it on The Chain box set. It must be lingering somewhere in the record company vaults. Given that the album was one of their best from that period, I would think that alot of fans, including myself, would be eager to hear it.

I suspect Cliff Adams may have something to do with it. Mystery To Me, which I think was their best selling album prior to 1975, was the last official Fleetwood Mac album from the Warner/Reprise years to be issued on CD. (To put it another way, Roadrunner made it to CD before Hypnotized.)

Probably not. I doubt anybody has heard the song since 1973, and none of them, not even Bob Welch, ever really offered any further information about it. Given the legal status of Fleetwood Mac's pre-"Heroes..." albums the difficulty of getting all of the players involved (Cliff Adams, Mich Reynolds, Wendy Welch, and Mick and the McVies), I doubt we'll ever hear it.
