Three Hearts is an album by rock musician and former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Welch. Don't Wait Too Long" is a reworking of "Good Things (Come to Those who Wait)", a Welch composition that had been left off the Fleetwood Mac album Mystery to Me.

Just like Welch's previous effort French Kiss, Three Hearts was a commercial success. The album reached #20 on the US charts in 1979 and went gold. It spawned a hit single, "Precious Love", which peaked at #19, making it Welch's last top 20 hit. "Church" was also a small hit, and peaked at #73.

The album was reissued by Culture Factory in 2013 in a miniature replica LP sleeve, with 3 bonus cuts including the French version of "Precious Love". However, to this day, the 12-inch extended mix of "Precious Love" has never been released on CD.
