Bob Welch Looks at Bop

Bob Welch Looks At Bop is the seventh solo studio album by former Fleetwood Mac member Bob Welch. After a 16 year self-imposed retirement, it was his first new recording since Eye Contact was released in 1983. Welch is the only musician credited on the album (except for one backing vocal by Beegie Adair), but he has stated in an interview that there were others involved by way of "modern technology".[1] The cover states that this is his first studio album since 1977's French Kiss, which is not true since Welch released five follow-up albums after French Kiss. Welch would not record another album until his 2003 recording His Fleetwood Mac Years & Beyond.

The track Hustler was a rewrite of Silver Heels from the 1974 Fleetwood Mac album Heroes Are Hard to Find. Due to its explicit lyrical content it was not included on some pressings of the album.
