'Trouble in Paradise' was David Geffen's second and final attempt at creating a CSNY super-group by merging three disparate (or maybe desperate) talents. 1974's 'Souther Hillman Furay' album was a good-sounding debut, whch hinted at better things to come from the trio once they had gotten a chance to merge into a productive unit. Unfortunately, the follow-up was even more fragmented. It sounds like 3 mini-albums: Richie Furay's Poco outakes, Chris Hillman's Manassass outakes and J.D Souther's Eagles/Jackson Browne tribute act. Allegedly, Furay was heard to remark forlornly during recording sessions 'and to think I left Poco for this?'. I rest my case.
