American Pastime is the fourteenth album by American rock band Three Dog Night, released in 1976. Their only studio album not to feature the band's founding vocalists (Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells) backed up by their long-time band, with some exceptions. It sold poorly and the band broke up in August 1976. Michael Allsup and Floyd Sneed had left the band in early-mid 1975 to form their own group SS Fools, with former Three Dog Night member Joe Schermie, Stan Seymore, Wayne DeVillier, Bobby Kimball, and Jon Smith, to little success. Danny Hutton had left TDN in late 1975, and was not present for any of the recording. "Yellow Beach Umbrella", the song Hutton sings lead on, was recorded long before the album was released, and is likely an extra track from the previous album, Coming Down Your Way. He was replaced by Jay Gruska.
