Passin' Thru

Passin' Thru is the fifth studio album by James Gang, released in October 1972, and their final album released on ABC Records (catalog no. ABCX 760). The band moved to Atco Records the next year.

This album is the last James Gang recording featuring guitarist Domenic Troiano, who was replaced by Tommy Bolin.

The scene shown on the album's cover is of East Main Street in Bismarck, North Dakota in the 1880s. The large building in the background still stands.
