Released: February 1965

Still a teenager, this was another 60s smash written by future 10cc-er Graham Gouldman in his downtime. More pop than the bluesy Yardbirds were used to, it was too much for purist Eric Clapton who left to join Bluesbreakers, but 'For Your Love' still has a frenetic power and an edge that suggests Clapton was hasty. He probably hasn't looked back though.
