Souther-Hillman-Furay Band

Created in 1973 in the urging of Asylum Documents president David Geffen, Souther-Hillman-Furay was the offspring of almost every significant country-rock strap. Richie Furay was a founding person in both Buffalo Springfield and Poco; Chris Hillman have been using the Byrds, the Soaring Burrito Brothers, and Stephen Stills’ Manassas; and J.D. Souther created Longbranch Pennywhistle with Eagle Glenn Frey, in addition to recording a single record for Asylum and penning music for performers like Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, as well as the Eagles. S-H-F’s assisting cast also was included with amazing credentials, including studio room stalwart Paul Harris on piano, Al Perkins (Soaring Burrito Brothers, Manassas) on pedal metal guitar, and previous Derek & the Dominos drummer Jim Gordon (who also published the piano piece that concludes “Layla”). Even though band, that was designed to be a type of country-rock edition of Crosby, Stills & Nash, received significant amounts of buzz and promotion, points hardly ever really gelled. Their debut offered reasonably well, however the aptly entitled Trouble in Heaven was badly received. S-H-F split up soon thereafter with each member heading on to single professions. Souther released several single efforts, achieving a achievement with “You’re Just Lonesome”; Hillman documented unsuccessfully for Asylum before teaming with previous Byrd-mates Roger McGuinn and Gene Clark in McGuinn, Clark & Hillman, and forming the favorite country-rock Desert Rose Music group; and Furay, who became a minister in Colorado, produced three Christian-influenced albums, in addition to re-joining Poco for his or her 20th-anniversary recording.
