Editors’ Notes

This country-rock supergroup featuring David Souther (songwriter for The Eagles and Linda Ronstadt), Chris Hillman (Flying Burrito Brothers, The Byrds), and Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco) hit paydirt on their 1974 self-titled debut album. This follow-up from the following year was a relative commercial flop—not because it was bad, but because the band were splitting at the seams. The suitably titled affair, produced by the legendary Tom Dowd, is a complete and engaging listen, full of sparkling country rock and hummable refrains. And Souther came into his own as songwriter and singer here; his folk-country “Mexico” is a weirdly alluring cheating-lover confessional; “Prisoner in Disguise” (later covered later by Linda Ronstadt) is an emotionally articulate ballad, and his rocking title song nearly steals the entire album. Hillman’s “Follow Me Through” is patented ’70s country-rock with a little funky breakdown and impassioned rock ’n’ roll guitar playing, and Furay’s gentle “For Someone I Love” rivals anything he did in Poco or Buffalo Springfield.

Customer Reviews

A Disappointment Considering All Of The Talent...

This is an example of when a super-group is less than the elemental parts. Richie Furay later released a couple of nice solo efforts, as well as his religious albums. J.D Souther released a nice 'Orbison-esque" song in "You're Only Lonely". Chris Hillman seems to be the one who blossomed after this fiasco. He led the Desert Rose Band to Country music prominance in the 1980's and 1990's.

Really good but not great

The title cut is by far the best track. There are some other good tracks here, and as a whole it's pretty consistant, given the different song writers. If you're on a budget, just buy the first track, it's well worth it.

Smooth, Rockin' and Right On Target

This album is a "favorite book" you'll always want to take with you, as you read every note. These songs are as good listening to as they are playing in a group. And for a musician, that's saying a lot.
