Farewell to Paradise (1973) is the fourth and final solo album by Emitt Rhodes. An eclectic mixture of rock, pop, jazz-funk and soul.

"Those That Die" is the B-side of "Tame The Lion" single, a furious anti-war song. "Tame the Lion" has a fast tempo, and "Those That Die" uses part of the lyrics from the bridge of "Tame the Lion", but at a slow tempo and chords from a minor key.
