Down The Road is the second and last album by Stephen Stills' band Manassas. It was released in 1973.

The album was not very well received. Rolling Stone was especially critical, saying "[i]t would be sad to think the people involved put this record out not because of business pressures but because they were proud of it."[2] It only made it to #26 on the Billboard album charts[3] and its single, "Isn't It About Time", only made it to #56 on the Billboard singles charts.[4]
