Got To Trope:

  • Alliterative Title: "I Wish You Would".
  • Cover Album: Aside from "Got To Hurry" and "I Ain't Done Wrong", the entire album consists of either covers or songs given by other songwriters (Most notably Graham Gouldman, later of 10cc).
  • Deliberately Monochrome: The album cover is in black-and-white.
  • Face on the Cover: Each individual band member (With the exception of Eric Clapton, who was already replaced by Jeff Beck) is featured on the cover, but in a separate frame.
  • One-Woman Song: "A Certain Girl", "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", "My Girl Sloopy".
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Clapton - at the time a blues purist - did this as soon as "For Your Love" was recorded. Jeff Beck replaced him for the remaining three songs left to record.
  • Something Blues: The bonus track "Steeled Blues".
  • Special Guest: Manfred Mann the band guests on "Sweet Music", with Mann himself producing that song.
  • Step Up to the Microphone: Eric Clapton and Paul Samwell-Smith sing co-lead vocals on "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl".
  • Title Track: "For Your Love".
