American Pastime is the fourteenth album by American rock band Three Dog Night, released in 1976 (see 1976 in music). Their only studio album not to feature the band's three founding vocalists (Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells) backed up by their long-time band, it sold poorly and the band broke up soon afterwards. Danny Hutton was only present in one of the songs in the album.
