The Souther–Hillman–Furay Band (album). The y Band is the debut album by The y Band, released in 1974 on Asylum Records. It peaked at number 11 on the Billboard albums chart. The y Band was a country rock supergroup led by singer-songwriters Richie Furay, Chris Hillman, and .
Souther Hillman Furay Band is a stereotypical two-album, one-hit wonder band. Like most supergroups, they came together at the urging of a producer or someone on the business side who smelled profits in the mix (David Geffen in this case). The Souther Hillman Furay Band represented country-rock royalty with former members of Buffalo Springfield (a one-hit wonder with For What It’s Worth that spawned even more supergroups), The Byrds (the true fathers of country rock music and multiple hit wonders) and . . The big hit from the record and one-hit wonder is Fallin’ in Love. That happy little ditty hit on the Billboard Hot 100 back in 1974. The Souther Hillman Furay Band broke up after their second album and that was that.

The story goes that record exec David Geffen brought John David Souther, Chris Hillman and Richie Furay together in a deliberate attempt to recreate the chemistry of Crosby, Stills and Nash. From the start, this alliance of three mismatched country-rock talents seemed a dubious proposition, and though The y Band’s 1974 self-titled debut does have merit, it fails to cohere into a unified statement. The best way to appreciate the album is by sampling the individual contributions of its members.
